Jay-Z Planning Return To Rap
By Shawn Lawrence James
Date: 2/16/2005 2:54 pm

Jay-Z is already plotting his return to rap.

The Island Def Jam Music Group President racked up a plethora of accolades in 2004, but has opted to served double duty as CEO and artist.

The rapper retired from Hip-Hop in 2003 following the release of The Black Album and publicly stated that it would take a miracle for him to return.

Amidst the emergence of numerous freestyles on the Net and a recent visit to New York Citys Hot 97, Jay-Z recently confirmed what many speculated.

I won't tour, and I am taking a break, but I'll be back, He confessed to the Page Six Column in the New York Post. "I am planning on recording again.

Sources speculate that a new studio album could be offered from Jay later this year. Additionally, Jay reportedly has albums from Memphis Bleek, Young Gunz and Foxy Brown lined up this year.

Hittman is not a real person. He was a computer program generated by Dr. Dre and Mel Man back in the mid 90's. When Dre started treating Mel-Man like shit, Mel infiltrated the computer and put a virus in the hittman program

The rapper “retired” from Hip-Hop in 2003 following the release of The Black Album and publicly stated that it would take a “miracle” for him to return.

It was just a marketing scam, I knew it from the beggining and said it many times on this board.  Jay-Z is an average rapper with a great marketing and promotion team.  You tell everybody it's your last album and your retiring, so they run out and buy it, and then you just set yourself up to make a "comeback" album and everybody gets all excited and runs out and buys it.

No shit Sherlock  ;D

We all knew this would happen. I was just hoping it would happen after 2090 since I kinda dislike Jay-Z and his entire style.

Hilarious how young haters be hating on Jigga for making a comeback after he announced his retirement, but when DJ Quik does the exact same thing, it's a gift from god, fantastic, etc.  ::)

Why retire if you still can make (classic) albums like Blueprint, Black Album.... ?

There is a difference Sherlock. Quik was serious about it, you can tell in every recent interview he's done that he had some serious personal problems back then. Whereas Jigga never planned it for a second and only did it as a gay ass marketing stunt

Agreed.... First Jake now Englewood, we don't agree on anything but when it comes to Jay-Z we see eye to eye.

And replying to that Elevz No Shit Sherlock post above, I am well aware that I wasn't the only person who knew Jay-Z was just pulling a publicity stunt. It was obvious to anyone who doesn't fall victim to Rockafella's hype and marketing machine.  Infact, the only thing I like about Rockafella Records, is the fact that Beanie Siegal and Freeway are both Muslims who talk openly about Islam on some of their records.

i'm glad i'm not the only one who sees right through this......jay-z never retired, it was all a scam to get the black album selling off the shelves. and of corse we're going to downplay jay-z's return and glorify quiks.............DJ QUIK IS A BETTER MUSICIAN THAN JAY-Z, like infinite said jay-z is NOT that great of a rapper, IMO he hasn't put together a decent bag of rhymes since the mid 90's , he can't produce, he can't really put together an original song...about all jay-z can do and ever does is dress fancy and recruite a bunch of producers to make him some catchy beats

Basically Jay-Z is wack and Quik is dope.  And Jay-Z is so heavily favored by the media, yo... I was even thinking that whole R-Kelly beef and the lawsuits was just a publicity stunt, that might be a stretch though.
