After announcing plans to release Factory Baby in 2020, Noname hinted at possibly retiring to focus on organizing.

Earlier this month, Noname revealed that she would be releasing a new album next year. On Wednesday (November 21st) she tweeted and deleted a tweet where she hinted that it could be her last release for a while. This came after a fan tagged her in a post asking for new music.

She responded by tweeting: “To be honest with you my heart isn’t fully in it anymore. The relationship between “artist” and “fan” is really fucking unhealthy. Y’all like what y’all like and hate what y’all hate. And I don’t wanna be on either side. I’m just tryna read and organize. After factory baby it’s✌🏾”

After the release of Room 25, she launched a book club, which she recently spoke about on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. She also recently formed Ghetto Sage with Smino and Saba.
