The rapper addressed his controversial tweets with Fox Sports’s Skip Bayless.

September 13, 2016

Lil Wayne appeared on Fox Sports's Undisputed with Skip Bayless to discuss the tweets that lead many to believe that the rapper was announcing his retirement. "I AM NOW DEFENSELESS AND mentally DEFEATED & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I'm dun," he wrote on September 3, an apparent reference to his ongoing legal battles with Cash Money founder Birdman.


Wayne explained on Tuesday's show that he wrote the tweets after an argument, and that at the time he was at his "tipping point. "I have a family. I have kids. I have a mother. We have bills. This is just business. Once the business is right, then everything is right." However, Wayne said that he still feels the same emotions he tweeted about last week. "Until something is done about [his dispute with Birdman] , maybe it'll change." He also confirmed that he would never work with Birdman again: "Gimmie mine and I'll walk off free, smiling."

He also voiced his appreciation for Young Thug and Kendrick Lamar's public comments of support, and said that the diverse audiences at his shows proves that racism no longer exists. “I thought that was clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism,” he says. Watch that below.
