Lil Wayne is thinking of giving up rapping for his newfound love of skateboarding.
 
The rapper, who recently made Forbes Under 30 Rich List, has told Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9 that he feels it’s time to start focusing on other projects.
 
He has spoken previously of his plans to retire, and has said that he is now eager to find the next thing.
 
Lil Wayne said: “Being me, I always feel like I ain't done nothing 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.”
 
He went on to add: “I think I deserve that. I think fans deserve a little-to-no Wayne. I've been everywhere. I've been out on everybody's song. 
 
“My artists are doing awesome; I believe the fans deserve some peace from me, so I'll be on my skateboard in the meantime.”
 
Lil Wayne is currently planning to release a memoir talking about his time in prison.
