In an interview with Katie Couric on her show Katie (via MTV), Lil Wayne said that he is ready to retire. Here are highlights:

On his plans to retire at the age of 35 and what he’ll do with his kids: “Whatever they want to do. I don’t want to have no influence … ‘Hey you must do this, you must do that.’ Because I didn’t have that and because I didn’t have that I grew up to be exactly what I wanted to be and how I wanted to be. I want that for all of my kids … I know I’ll be ready to retire at 35 because I am so ready to retire now!”

On if he’s still using “sizzurp”: “No, I can’t. My doctors. I was doing it too much.”

On if his fellow convicts were excited to see a rapper in jail: . “It’s jail. So, for the first 20-30 seconds you’re like, ‘Oh my God that’s really him,’ then … the reality of where you’re at clicks right back in.”
