Millions of fans across the world aren’t the only ones who don’t want Lil Wayne to quit the rap game. Drake, Young Thug, and Chance The Rapper posted some text on Twitter and Instagram, but one of Compton’s finest decided to go all out with a short video. Yes, that’s right, Kendrick Lamar shared his drunken feelings with the internet recently, sending Weezy F. Baby a public service announcement asking him not to quit the game.
In a video that Kendrick posted from his iPhone, he rapped along to Weezy’s 2002 album, 500 Degrees and some of his songs from his Hot Boyz days when he was just fifteen years old. Following the rap along, K. Dot began to squash any gibberish of the rap legend throwing in the towel: “Talk about retiring and shit. Fuck that n**a. Retire, quitting rap, whatever you want to call it, n**ga,” Mind you, this all took place at 5:32 in the morning, so you know Kendrick had to be feeling himself a little bit.
Lil Wayne, who’s been in a back-and-forth legal battle against Birdman and Cash Money Records, revealed on Twitter that he would be starting his early retirement, explaining that he was both “defenseless” and “defeated.” Since his unexpected announcement, he’s received support worth its weight in gold from fans, and his Young Money family including Mack Maine, Lil Twist, and Drizzy Drake.
Maybe Kendrick’s video will help Wayne change his mind so he can go back to doing what he loves. And if not, at least we still have tons of chilling anthems to bang in our headphones from the rap icon. Check out Kendrick spilling his feelings in the video below:
