Lil Wayne to bow out of the spotlight: "Fans deserve a little-to-no Wayne"

Rap heavyweight Lil Wayne has admitted that he's considering taking a break from the music industry to focus on his other passion, skateboarding.

The 'A Milli' superstar confessed that he's had a great deal of exposure over the past few years and thinks he has earned the right to step aside for a while so that he can enjoy himself and pursue other things:

"I think fans deserve a little-to-no Wayne. I've been everywhere. I've been out on everybody's song. I'm still on everybody's song. My artists have been doing awesome. I believe the fans deserve some peace from me."

"Being me, I always feel like I ain't done nothing (sic) yet, so I'm always looking for the next thing to do. It does get pretty boring when it comes to just the rapping and all that type of stuff. I've been doing it since I was eight and I'm about to be 30 in September..."

Referring to his love of skateboarding, Weezy added: "I picked up the skateboard and I thought it'd be a hobby and what happened is it's a lifestyle. You have to be fully committed because it's super scary. In order to be fully committed you have to live that lifestyle... It's kind of putting rap on the back burner."
