Washington (ANI): Rapper Jay-Z says he will never announce his retirement again but will slip away quietly from the music world when he is done making enough music. The hitmaker had declared in 2003 that The Black Album would be his last work.
However, the 39-year-old Big Pimpin' rapper made a 2006 comeback with Kingdom Come. Jay, real name Shawn Carter, followed with American Gangster in 2007 and his The Blueprint 3 has just been released.
Contactmusic quoted him as saying: "I learned from that last one (retirement announcement) that you should just let it happen. The day that you're not making music you should just not make music. It doesn't have to be an announced retirement. So I would never say that again. Ever."
