So we’ve heard of basketball, football, even baseball superstars retiring and coming back to the game for one last year, but can a rapper do it? Well, Jay-Z has done it. And unlike those superstars of sports, Jay-Z is probably here to stay. He literally came out of retirement because he believed the “rap game” was struggling. With songs like “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)” bashing the T-Pains of the world, Jay-Z was tired of listening to the same old crap. I think he makes a good argument. The album is packed with original hits and tons of guest artists including Luke Steele from one of my favorite bands, Empire of the Sun.
