According to an interview on DJ Drama's radio show
, our dude Lil Wayne is kinda leaving the the rap game to pursue skateboarding full-time. Wayne cleverly said on the show, "I feel like the fans deserve a little no Wayne." We here at County Grind find it just a tad fuckin' odd that Tunechi (self-proclaimed Martian) publicly revisited his retirement plans again around the same time 'Merica landed on Mars. Is that synchronicity, or is there even an explanation in the English language for this type of cosmic event?
Keeping in step with the trend of rappers Ping-Ponging back and forth in and out of retirement, this may not last long. Maybe one appearance on a Tony Hawk game and Weezy'll be fully back where he belongs, making Dedication 5.
Let's be real, though; sloppy kickflips can't be the only thing Wayne is up to during this hiatus. We're pretty sure he's finding a few more interesting things to do with his time. Here's how we think Weezy's keeping busy:
Weezy's surprised but pleased at Lady Edith's recent transformation from bitch to caretaker. But the real reason he watches is 'cause it's fun to root for Mary and Matthew. Will those two actually get together?
Catch up on Downton Abbey
Between Carter IV and making that "Motivation" money, he hasn't been able to fully catch up on Downton Abbey. Inside sources say he's on episode three of season one, and he's got 'em all TiVo'd. Though with all of the Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones episodes he's got recorded, his hard drive is filling up quickly. So, Weezy's gotta sweep through these Downton Abbey episodes real soon or else he won't be able to watch episode five of Girls either. It's complicated.
