"I know y'all want me around for a little bit, [but] Carter V is my last album," Wayne revealed. "Man, I've been rappin' since I was 8 years old. I'm 30 now, man. That's a long time, man." He added, "When I love to do something, I'm fully focused on it and it only. And music sometimes is not that 'it'."

His plans include a business venture with fellow rapper . "My big brother Nelly and I... him and I we got a sports show coming out. We don't have a station, we're just doin' it ourselves right now," Wayne gushed.

"Tha Carter V", his eleventh studio album, is expected to be released in 2013. Another album, "" will be put in stores February 19 that year.
