Teyana Taylor retired from music last year.

So explained why on Cam Newton's BET series Sip n Smoke.

Part of it has to do with her family.

“At the end of the day, I’m a mom first,” she explained. “A mom, a wife, a woman. And I think for me, I put in a lot of work. I work very, very hard. So, if you feel unheard and unseen—like how I said earlier with my husband. He sees me, he hears me. I take that shit serious. Everything that I do. So if you’re my husband, or I’m signed, everybody that I’m aligned with should see me. They should hear me. They should feel me. If you don’t see me, hear me, or feel me, it’s a dub for you.”

Part of was her unhappiness with her label.  Teyana was on GOOD Music and Def Jam Recordings when she walked away.

“And I felt like the label wasn’t really hearing me and seeing me,” she continued. “I felt underappreciated. So, for my mental health, my mental well-being, for my kids, let me just put this on ice for a little [bit]. It’s not that I retired permanently. It’s more like, I just don’t feel like I want to move another inch for a company.”

Teyana went on to say that while she's currently retired, like most rappers who are "retired" there's a good chance she got back to work one day.
