Most unsurprising news of the year – Jay Z has come out of retirement. After releasing The Black Album, Jay had intended to stop recording studio albums and since then he’d become President and CEO of Def Jam, bought a slice in a basketball team, appeared on numerous artists’ albums and gone on a massive tour of the globe.
His new album is due this year and will be called Kingdom Come. The record will feature beats from Dr Dre, Kanye, Timbaland and even Coldplay’s Chris Martin will be up on the deal. It’s great to have him back… even though he was never really gone.
