Jay Z reacts to reports of his retirement from music

Jay Z recently reacted to the reports of the artist having retired from music as he

hasn’t released a single album in the past five years.

During his conversation with Kevin Hart at Hart to Heart, the 24-time Grammy

award winner weighed in on his plans for the future.

“I don’t know what happens next. I’m not actively making music, making an album

or having plans to make an album, but I never wanna say I’m retired. It’s a gift and who am I to shut it off?” the rapper said.

Jay Z announced his retirement from hip-hop in 2003 but soon returned to the

scene with another album Kingdom Come in 2006.

“I tried that [retirement]. I’m terrible at that. I just needed a break.
