Earlier this month, Lil Wayne shared a few alarming tweets that left many of his fans concerned that he might be considering retiring from music entirely. In his string of tweets, he said that he felt "defenseless" and "mentally defeated," and ending his message by saying that he's leaving "gracefully and thankful."
