Rapper said earlier this month that he was "now defenseless and mentally defeated"

Lil Wayne is reportedly planning to confront ongoing rumours about his retirement today (September 13).

According to TMZ, the rapper will discuss the rumours during his appearance on FOX Sports show UNDISPUTED later this evening, when presenter Skip Bayless asks him outright if he is planning to drop his mic for good.

The rapper fuelled retirement rumours earlier this month (September) when he tweeted: “I AM NOW DEFENSELESS AND mentally DEFEATED & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun,” causing fans and fellow musicians like Drake and Kendrick Lamar to send him messages of support.

However, he later calmed these rumours by dropping a new track called ‘Grateful’, which takes aim at his former label Cash Money, with whom he has been feuding for some time.

You don’t see Stunna right next to me/And I won’t see Stunna write cheques to me / They can’t put no more Weezy baby out/ That’s that Cash Money vasectomy,” goes one line. Another has him rapping: “Tell the press I’m not depressed / I just had to press reset“.

‘Grateful’ is streaming exclusively on Tidal now. Listen to it below, courtesy of Pigeons And Planes. His 12th studio album, ‘Tha Carter V, had been expected later this year, but he has yet to confirm a release date.
