While paying a visit to his friend Skip Bayless and co-host, pro-football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe on Tuesday's (Sept. 13) episode of the FS1 show Skip And Shannon: Undisputed , Lil Wayne -- who also provides the show's theme music "No Mercy" -- set the record straight on his retirement tweet.

"This was a tweet off of an argument over what's going on," said Weezy about his recent retirement tweet without offering specifics. "I was at my tipping point."

When prompted about his standing with Birdman, Wayne said, "This is business. I have a family. I have kids. I have a mother. We have bills. Once the business is right, then the business is right." He continued about the tweet, "I did feel that way. I still feel that way. I didn't take it down." Shannon then asked if he would work with Birdman again if the money was right and Wayne responded, "No." He added, "Give me mine and I'll walk off, free, smiling." 

Wayne also touched on the rappers who offered their support like Kendrick Lamar and Young Thug. "The artists I don't know, the Kendrick Lamars and other people, I was like, 'Wow, I didn't know.' It mattered,'" he said.
