After multiple platinum-selling albums, dozens of chart-topping singles, and four Grammy awards, Lil Wayne's solo rap career may be finally coming to an end.

In a new interview with MTV News about his upcoming album "Tha Carter V," Weezy announced that the project will likely be his last.

"I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes and it's definitely the final Carter album," he told the outlet. "It's the final Carter album. It's stopping at five."

Lil Wayne released his first Carter album, "Tha Carter" in 2004. The album performed strongly, going gold and hitting the top-five on the Billboard 200. His most successful Carter albums were his two most recent: 2008's "Tha Carter III" and 2011's "The Carter IV," both of which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and were certified multi-platinum.

The album sales are evidently not what Weezy is looking for, as he has voiced his desire for retirement in the past. "Oh, I know I'll be able to retire at 35 because I am so ready to retire now," the 31-year-old rapper told Katie Couric in an interview in September.

With "Tha Carter V" currently scheduled to hit stores on May 5, Wayne seems to be on track for his retirement plans. If Lil Wayne were to be persuaded to make another album, however, it would take more than "A Milli" to get him on board. As he told MTV, "$25 to $35 million would get me to do another solo album after this."
