    Lyfe Jennings is giving up his guitar for baby bottles, but he doesn’t shortchange us when it comes to his last studio album.
     
    He stopped by Studio903 headquarters just recently to perform his new single, promote his newest album, and give his two-week notice.
     
    Well, not really two weeks, but Lyfe is planning to retire after Sooner or Later. We had heard whispers that Lyfe would be calling it quits with the music biz and he told Studio903 exactly why he was doing it.
     
    “I have two little boys at home and I’m not really there a lot. I’m gone around eight months and they are around that age where I can’t really do that. I want to make sure I’m there to guide them in their footsteps. I owe them that.”
     
    Lyfe has a 2-year-old boy, a 4-year-old boy and an eight-month-old little girl. He said he doesn’t like to be on the road and away from them, and he travels back to see them whenever possible.
     
    But we don’t think Lyfe is going to have to worry about money any time soon. Always the innovator, Lyfe has a book series coming out and a screenplay, which is being turned into a television series. On top of all of that, he’s staying busy with his new imprint, Jesus Swings.
     
    “Well the name came about because when Jesus was around his life was sort of like a pendulum; up and down, that’s the type of things I want my label to progress to,” Lyfe said when asked how he came up with the name for his label.
     
    He already has a few acts on the label, including a singer he calls Gritz. But in the meantime he’s still grinding on this new album that will hit stores before the end of the year. The new single “Haters” is causing some buzz and the proclaimed “street single” off his album is his message to haters and fans that he’s okay.
     
    “I didn’t really do nothing but put music out that I thought wasn’t going to be popular from the musical perspective but from the communicable perspective as well. I just wanted to let them know that Lyfe is good,” he said.
     
    Check out the video below of his performance at Studio903, acoustic guitar and all. We must say, he sounds damn good! We’re going to hate to see him go!
