    NEW YORK - Call him the Michael Jordan of rap. Jay-Z, who declared that 2003's "The Black Album" would be his last, is coming out retirement and releasing a new CD.

    "Kingdom Come" will hit stores this fall, Entertainment Weekly magazine reports in its new issue, due on newsstands Monday.

    "It was the worst retirement in history," Jay told the magazine.
    I'm usually a rap hater but Jay-Z is an exception. ;p

    Definitely looking forward to it.

    linkin park was bad even without jay-z.

    i don't think artists should be able to retire..they never know when they will stop getting inspiration for new material.

    If Jay-Z had announced he was retiring at a point when his career was fairing as badly as that of The Dixie Chicks, then it might have been permanent.

    Most obvious thing ever. Even on MTV when he was retiring they just assumed he'd be back in a few years. Probably improved record sales on the last album by the added publicity. People shouldn't say that their retiring if they are released the next cd just slight after what they would have if they hadn't retired.

    it was probably for the publicity. his newer works will become "more precious" to his growing fanbase this way.

    i think this point was previously stated..so sorry for the unoriginality

    but it's kinda fucked up how he coming out a week after Nas releases his CD on Def Jam. I think him coming back is stupid. it's not like he needs money nor has something to prove. He is the President of Def Jam, him coming back will probably be a conflict of interest.
