The rapper hinted at retirement in an Instagram post.

On Tuesday (Jan. 21), Waka Flocka Flame celebrated his six-year marriage to Tammy Rivera.

“I always said to myself when I was a kid... ‘I’ma marry my best friend.’ Now look at us,” he captioned a wedding photo. “[Six] yrs in, with a teenage daughter and two frenchie’s. #WeYoungOld with a bright ass future ahead of us.”

Elsewhere in the post, Waka sneakily announced that he’s also planning to drop a new album later this year, which will be his last.

“Ya first album dropping this year and my last album dropping this year PLUS our own tv show in March [on WeTV] #ThisOurWorld love frfr!!!” he wrote. “When I say you perfect I mean you perfect. Love is what we really be in, our own world on our own time #HappyAnniversary.”

This isn’t the first time the Atlanta mainstay has alluded to retirement. Back in 2018, he told Raquel Harper of BET’s Raq Rants he’d already accomplished everything he’d set out to do.

“I don’t want to rap, I did what I came to do,” he said. “I’ve already passed $30 million. Everybody I started with is rich. Everybody is happy. Everybody has kids. I don’t have anything else to do. Everybody else who didn’t make it, they died or got kids, my right-hand man who was running the streets with me is a pastor. Life changed for me.”

Waka last released his Mollywood and Salute Me Or Shoot Me 6 mixtapes last year. His last full-length album, Triple F Life: Fans, Friends & Family, arrived in 2012. Fans have been waiting patiently for the sequel project to 2010’s Flockaveli to drop, which was initially teased back in 2018. Waka hasn’t shared any updates or an official release date for the project, but seeing as this year’s album will be his last, Flockaveli 2 may finally see the light of day.
