Rod Wave Claims He's Soon Retiring From Rap

Rod Wave says he's tired of music and will soon be retiring.

On Instagram Live, he told fans he dropped "Cold December" to honor the terms of his $15 million contract with Alamo Records and Sony Music Entertainment.

"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," he said.

"I'm only here for a little longer and when I say that as in Rod Wave," he continued. "I'm only here for a little money. I'll leave y'all straight though. I gave y'all straight crack. Nobody was f*cking with me with that pen. [...] This sh*t not really me. I'm not no people person or no center-of-attention ass n*gga. I hate attention, man. I can't get on the internet without seeing my face or name… It's kinda like you sell your soul, bro."

Rod Wave added that he doesn't like performing.
