— Lil Wayne says the racial makeup of the crowd at one of his shows was "clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism."

The rapper was asked Tuesday on Fox Sports' "Skip and Shannon: Undisputed" about a show in suburban New York where the crowd was mostly white. He said it was "a perfect example" that racism doesn't exist. Wayne says the crowd at his shows "has always been everybody."

Wayne also touched on retirement rumors prompted by a tweet earlier this month. He explained that the tweet stemmed from a money dispute between him and Cash Money Records CEO Birdman. He said he wouldn't work with Birdman again and plans "to walk off free" once the dispute is resolved.
