Rod Wave Says He Wants To Retire Music & Feels Like He Sold His Soul 

Rod Wave Says He Wants To Retire Music & Feels Like He Sold His Soul 

Rod Wave is keeping it 100 with fans.

The “By Your Side” rapper hopped on live to chit-chat with his supporters. He recently dropped “Cold December,” which was supposed to drop last year but didn’t. Fans were confused as to why Rod would drop the song in January. He went on the live to explain why. 

Hot New Hip Hop points out he released “Cold December” to honor the terms of his contract with Alamo Records and Sony, saying. Rod said, “I was in a $15 million deal contract that I was trying to close on, and they was like, ‘They need that song.’ That’s the only reason why I dropped that sh*t. But I wasn’t never gon’ drop that sh*t if you want to be technical.”

Then Rod told fans some heartbreaking news. He said he’s considering retiring. Rod said, 

“I’m only here for a little longer, and when I say that I mean as in Rod Wave. I’m only here for a lil’ minute, man. I done gave y’all straight dope, straight crack. Ain’t nobody’s f*cking with me with that pen. This sh*t not really me, man. I’m not no people person, I’m not no center of attention ass n***a, I hate attention, man. I can’t get on the internet without seeing my face or name. […] It’s kind of like you sold your soul, bro, ’cause you say that’s not you but for $300K it’ll be me.”
