Lil Wayne: $25 To $35 Million Would Get Me To Do Another Album After “Carter V”

(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne has been talking about stepping away from the game for a while. The Young Money leader has insisted his next solo album, Tha Carter V, will be his last LP.

Wayne reiterated his retirement plans once again during an interview with MTV News. The New Orleans native added that the only way he would be willingly to record another solo album after C5 is if he is paid on the level of Kobe Bryant’s salary.

“25 to 35 million would get me to do another solo album after this,” said Wayne. “I didn’t smile when I said it.”

The “A Milli” rapper is willingly to contribute to future collaborative projects like Young Money’s Rise of An Empire released this week, but he made it clear the next installment in Tha Carter series will absolutely be the last.

“I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes and it’s definitely the final Carter album. It’s the final Carter album. It’s stopping at five,” added Wayne. “The reason being is because the way I’m working on this album, to me, it seems like it will be impossible for me to work this hard again for anything else.”

  • Bruh tripn for real…..Nah dawg we will just catch ya mixtapes and features then..lmao 25 mil nigga u ain’t Jordan…nor Kobe…

  • $18916246

    Okay….25 to 35mil from who?…this guy and his daddy parade around HIP-HOP bragging about having their own imprint label, claims him and his daddy are rap bosses? Wouldn’t any effort to produce an album/cd be of his own expense i,e paying himself, funding his own project (minus any signed on investors). See “boss status” is just something these “No Money” clowns shout to make themselves appear far more financially successful than they really are. Wayne and his daddy and his brother slim are record label employee’s waiting on major label funding to produce projects….where’s the ownership in that? FAMOUS PAWNS.

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • Brindle

    We need to give him 25-35 mil not to put out an album… You can send donations to me!!!

  • Black Jay

    N*gga I wouldn’t pay you 25-35 dollars for an album or a f*cking Lil Wayne concert and you’re looking for 35 Million?! Good luck with that….

  • MrNoName2K

    Aiight Wayne, $25M…GET THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE F*CK OUTTA HERE with all that hoopla!! YMCMB is sinking like the Titanic. In other newssssssssss.. Philly Eagles are lookin crazy nice adding Darren Sproles to the mix with McCoy but why in the hell would you throw Mike Vick on the chopping block??? They too too tooooooooo confident in that “Cinderella story” Nick Foles, aint no way in hell but aye, like YMCMB, everything must end..Jets/Raiders, someones gonna pay top dollar for ol #7

  • JD

    It might be one thing if albums still sold like the did but they don’t. He’ll be lucky to sell a million copies. 1 mill x $10 = $10 million minus production costs, minus advertising, and exc.

  • justmathoughts

    im not gonna speak on what another man deserves….with that said , it is actually very possible, if you factor in sales, endorsements, shows etc….. i dont think he would speak on it if it couldnt be done so hes just letting his pops know ahead of time lol

  • dee

  • WillVetterGoodin

  • Yall know what? I ain’t gonna sit here and count Wayne out by saying his carter 5 gon be wack. I think he’s a clever lil guy on them songs. I ain’t really checked for em in a minute but I ain’t checked on nutn else either. I would honestly place my bet that if any rapper were to go platinum in these times he would be in the discussion. That number he talkn is ludicrous. CP5 must gon be his best work or sumn, it must be so good that we are gonna want him back in the game. I doubt that shid but I wouldn’t count lil bro out album wise. He can’t do no worse than what’s out now by mediocre rappers.
