Lupe Fiasco to retire?

Lupe Fiasco has done a lot for hip-hop, but after he releases his last three albums, it appears as though he wants to retire.

"It's not too much of a drastic, revolutionary thing. It's the end of one thing, stepping into another capacity now. Music business is a very taxing thing, I've done it for a long time. I've been doing it for like 12, 13 years, in various capacities. Major labels, almost every major label. And it's just time to do something else. I don't really look at it as being that crazy of an idea. I don't really look at it like that. As soon as this contract is up, I'm going to step more into an independent space and have the freedom to do whatever we want."He also revealed that he may become a teacher."Yeah, I got an offer, it's in the works," Lupe said. "But it's not solid yet. It's something that kind of just came up -- very serious, but just kind of like, 'Okay -- go back to the drawing board, figure out what you want me to do, exactly, put a plan together and then let's go back to the table. So that's what's happening right now. If it all comes into fruition, I think it's something I'll definitely be doing." (HHB)
I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Change can be good.
New challenges.
Not sticking with something that has stopped working.
