Rod Wave isn't a fan of being famous and he might retire soon.

Earlier this week, the 22-year-old explained why he dropped his new single "Cold December" in January and not in December, which had to do with label drama.

Rod seems so frustrated by the whole thing, that he's ready to walk away from music entirely. He also said that being famous just isn't him.

"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," he said about "Cold December." "But I wasn't never going to drop that sh*t if you want to be technical."

"I'm only here for a little longer and when I say that I mean as in Rod Wave," added the Floridian crooner. "I'm only here for a lil' minute, man. I done gave y'all straight dope, straight crack. Ain't nobody 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."

This isn't the first time that Rod addressed issues with his label. Last January he accused them of not paying him.

How would you respond to Rod's new message?
