Jay-Z Reveals Comeback Details in New Entertainment Weekly Cover Story

jayewcover.jpgIn the upcoming edition of Entertainment Weekly, Def Jam President Jay-Z will finally break his silence about his new album. In the cover story titled “Jay-Z Returns,” the Brooklyn rapper-turned-exec gives details about coming back to music after retiring three years ago. “It was the worst retirement, maybe, in history,” Jay tells EW. “I believed it for two years.” Jay’s new album Kingdom Come, rumored to be in stores this November, will feature production from Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Kanye West and Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Entertainment Weekly’s Fall Music Preview issue will hit stands on Friday, September 15.

    Jay is nice. Truthfully, he’s already etched himself into hip hop history. But I think it’s sad that the whole time he’s been president, no significant albums have been released. Where’s Redman and Joe Budden? Meth dropped but he aint got a video. The Roots are legendary but where’s their promotion at? How are you gonna drop an album right around the time Nas is dropping. It don’t make sense. I’m done with hip hop. Peace.

  • AJTHROWBACK

    Jay-Z is definitely one of my favorite rappers of all time, and I sincerely hope that he gets an all-star lineup in terms of production to make this “comeback” album one to remember. Honestly, New York rap hasn’t been the same since Jay retired, considering he is arguably the “King of New York” (that’s actually living of course). Post-”retirement” albums for rappers haven’t always been successful ones. However, with Jay’s star power and knack for putting out hits, I hope that he can crank out another BLUEPRINT or BLACK ALBUM–we all know that he probably won’t ever match REASONABLE DOUBT.

  • Danja29

    good shit! glad to see it. this year has been a wash and this final quarter better be some serious heat or 2006 was nothing to talk about… Jay will more than likely be doing his part in that.

  • Here Comes The Hot Sauce

    It’s hot how Jay decides to break the album details in the most mainstream, non-hip-hop mag. That’s what’s really hood.

  • tinky

    come back wearin the 45

  • Weezy Jr

    Thanks God for Jay.

    I cant wait for Jay to come out but if he is weak on this one, he will give listeners the more reason to crown Lil Wayne as the best rapper in the Game.

    Good Luck Jay. your new albumm will be the fate of hip-hop and New York , fans will not oly listen to this album with an immense scrutiny, it will help answer the question ” Can Weezy be compared to Jay at All? As he claims? “

  • http://www.myspace.com/sicbeats SKEEMATICS

    well at least he admitted to being foolish about his “retirement”. The album will be dope. His inspiration seems to be back as strong as when BIG was alive and when he went up against Nas.

    And dudes need to recognize cause even at his worst and most commercial, he is better than 98% of rappers today.

    Music is terrible right now and it honestly needs this dude to balance this commercial club snap nonsense that even New York has fallen victim too. His heavy influence on Hip Hop and MCs will definitly change radio.

    I’m gonna start by saying THANK GOD, it’s about damn time, your boy is back, enough said. Jay is the greatest rapper of all-time no disrespect to anybody but, the only thing he hasen’t done is die. Kingdom Come is a great title cause, it’s very fitting. Hopefully all the stuff about Beanie Sigel will be clear on the album.

  • Weezy Jr

    Marlon, you got a good point. He will do more damage to his cred if he puts out another album and tries to be th ehero of the century.

    Too many Jordan refrences on the Black Album, I knew he was comming back. It’s a shame, he’s dropping the end of the 4th qt and he’s going to outsell all the rappers who’ve dropped this year. Good thing too, because NY needed this, cause 50 isn’t enough to bring you all back, but Jay can do it by himself. Now all that’s left is to see if he comes back with a balanced album, singles to a limit, or if he goes all the way pop. Then he dropping in November, that’s going to mess Game record sales up and Nas’s cause they supposed to drop the 7th. I hope he gets back at the people who been dissing him, at least now he can make money off it.

  • Walker

    Okay, I love Jay Z and everything but who didn’t see this coming? He got a lot of fame with Reasonable Doubt, Life and Times of S. Carter and Blueprint, but then once his career started to plateu, he needed another claim to fame. Being the Black Album and his big retirement. That sold albums and so will this.

    About time can’t leave up to the youngstas. Lyrics are o.k. topics weak. They spends too much time on the hype-hop, not hip-hop. All the killing and dying. Leave little room for inspiration. These kids are raised on this music. Hip-hop has lost it’s political voice. Prominent rappers like them G-uint nigga don’t want to speak on no issues. I’m glad Cubes back, Jay-Z coming back, Nas and Scarface never left us. L. Banks is a bitch afraid to be political 50 too. When you have all these people checking for you it’s more than about money. All them want to talk about how they fuck over niggas. Have some H.E.A.R.T. AND BALANCE THAT SHIT OFF. Now San Quinn from Fricso, Califorina is a throw back young nigga. That attack all topics with balance, inspiration, all was something to make mothafucka proud you strong enough to survive this bad living. But he’s and show harshness of street life cut and dry

    is there anyone on here that knows jay personally. doubt it, maybe though. all these shots at him seem more personal, topics we (the public) don’t and never will know the full details of. Look at the music, not as if you boys with the man, cuz you aint. all this talk about him hurtin record sales of whoever drops, hurtin nas record sales. think about it..if you look at it like that, we wouldnt have records from the greats. if these dude where on jay’s level in any aspect (excluding nas, i believe he is right behind), then they wouldnt have a problem sellin records if jay put out on the same day. Jays true fans will buy his record in Nov, Nas true fans will buy in Nov, shit ima buy both if they drop the same day or if they dont. Don’t hate cuz Jay can sell records. or cuz he has a bigger fan base. It looks like half of you guys are just hatin cuz dude is commin back and gonna sell records. Its a fact, he will. deal with it.

    Move over Jay. THE GAME is the new KING of hip-hop. Stop bittin peoples rhymes. The only reason Jay is even so big in the game is because one day he woke up and started calling himself king and everyone just went along for the ride. Just like T.I. They aint kings. The only thing they rule is there record labels. But Jay does make some good music though. It just sounded better when the original person spit it.

    Hov is back and the timing couldn’t be better. A lot of you dudes r hatin’ and I don’t see why. Hip-Hop needs a breathe of fresh crisp air. Most of the hip-hop that is out now is 100% puro…garbage. All this snap music. Where is the lyrical content? Most of you cats forget that the reason most of these southern rappers are on is because they listened to hip-hop from the late 80′s to the mid 90′s. You think about the artist during those times: West & East Coast. You got cats like LiL Wayne, Ludacris, T.I. saying they are the best rapper..R U SERIOUS. What about them cats from D-Block, Nas, Scarface. What about the CHEF, he’s still around, Rakim, lyrical content! I’m not mad at southern snap rappers because they’re minorities eatin’ but to make a case that these dudes are the hottest is crazy. Hov is in my top 5 dead or alive and I am anticipating this album. I hate turning on the radio now, I am strictly cd’s: All Eyes on Me, Life after Death, Reasonable Doubt, 36 Chambers, It Was Written, Kiss Da Game Goodbye, sadly…Get Rich or Die Tryin, any AZ album…Lyrical Content…any dis on my comment is just pure stupidity and hate….Lyrical content.

    Jays album isnt gonna effect the pushing back of any artist on def jam in my opinion. Just because it is now going public, doesnt mean it wasnt know for the past few months, shit maybe even the past year. The album release date was prolly set months ago, we are just gettin the official news now, which is that he is dropping again. They/Jay been plannin for awhile. Patience/Timing is key. To say its gonna fuck up other artist albums is ridiculous. Itll fuck up other artist sales obviously, cuz nobody can hang with Jay. Find a legit way to hate on Hova. Im wit you Tank-Philly, only a handful of albums in my collection are new than 2003ish. All this shit gettin put out now is garbage.

  • jon jon–23

    Jay Z is not the best of all time but he is a pretty good rapper. He will probably debut at #1 just off name alone. I don’t believe the album will be that good though. He’ll release a couple more albums after this until people really get tired of him and beg him not to release any more material. Should have focused more on being a record exec….

    Yall tripping. You really think this album will suck? Ok let’s see, the last Jay-Z song he recently did was……Fourty-Four 4′s and that shit was as sick as Reasonalbe Doubt shit. Oh yea be on the lookout for a possible Cam reply. If u watch the interview with Sway and Toure he said “not yet” and “let’s leave the possibility out there” when asked about the reply track.

    Lets get it!!!

    Damn, yall refuse to listen to anything except jay-z huh? what, yall expect him to rap til he’s 70 years old? i mean damn. give other people a chance, dipset is holding it down, jadakiss is nice, nas is actually the best, but now he’s the backup QB to jay. i hope “kingdom come crashing down” flops hard and jay tries to go at game and the dipset. can u imagine game and the diplomats slaughtering the whole cockafella record camp? ask 50 what happens when u cross game, throw in the dips and u got what the SOUTH wants…the death of a “legend”….h-town fucks with game and dipset hard.

    Na KANE, I think Jay’s played out eva since he got with Kanye an Beyounce. I think my man NaS will put things back in perspective. An what’s the deal with Hov droppin’ an album same time NaS? Sounds a lital shisty to me.

    “It Was Written I flossed

    In the Firm I learned I am Nastradamus

    I gave it all up so I can chill at home with mama

    She was getting old and sick so I stayed beside her

    We had the best times, she asked would I make more songs

    I told her not till I see her health get more strong

    In the middle of that, Jay tried to sneak attack

    Assasinate my character, degrade my hood

    Cause in order for him to be the Don, Nas had to go

    The Gam-B-I-N-O rules I understood

    What you want, see, I already had

    The Gift and The Curse? Fuck that shit, the first shall be last

    I’m the man’s man, a rapper’s rapper

    G-O-D S-O-N, they’ll be none after

    I was Scarface, Jay was Manolo

    It hurt me when I had to kill him and his whole squad

  • bmort

    im glad jay is coming back but. if u talking about bring ny back he needs to find some new talent and let some of these younger cats eat. he’s ruining def jam also. He never takes chances as far as new talent. I mean this is with producers also. If this shit flops then he should be ashamed with the line of producers he has.

  • elliott

    mqan allyou niggas thats hating on jay is phony the nigga jay aint gone hurt nas sells if anything it will help you got nas coming out 1st then the following week jay shit im gone buy both of them, and that nigga aint hurting nobody sells on def jam if you have a fan base they gone get ya album anyway, jay,s fan base is just larger than evertbody elses thats it, shit i like joe budden and all of the roc artist and def jam artist, there fan base isnt as large as jays thats it so quit hating on the nigga like he said in the vibe article when he was retiring hes a gift and a curse to some of his artist, but i hope he not on that mainstream rap shit hope its blueprint and the volumes he made type shit, jay no weak shit about ya money, we know come at these niggas in 3d you and nas holla.

  • DEREK

    Jay-Z will always be my favorite rapper of all time but he’s guilty by affiliation with scumbag jeezy so I’m willing to personally diss him. Nobody likes Jeezy, he went platinum w/ a dirty south buzz and luck. I doubt he moved 1,000 cds in NYC. He’s degenerate garbage in plain english. Jay is better than that but he’s f*ckin up his rep.

  • brad

    Chris Martin? WTF?

  • http://xxl Mikakeli #1

    I just do not understand the hip hop culture mind set! of how we can be so blind and deaf mentally to listen to a person that is so full of it in yet you fans of jay-z still hang on to every word that comes out this man’s mouth how sad.this is my opinion how can you say your “retired” at the age of 36 or 37 from rhyming the very thing that made you become sucessful in life, you lead your own fans on for three short years.first of all jay-z is certainly not the best rapper period when you can rap and talk about more than money,cash,hoes and changing clothes than we can talk but if simple minds keep buying his CD’s shame on them and one more thing before I go if bill gates and donald trump are in their 50′s or 60′s and their billionaire’s but they are not even talking retirement, what make you think a black hip hop millionaire can stay fully retired even with other business avenues to make money? not if he wont to keep that status in hip hop. GOD BLESS!

  • warigz

    Jay Z, maybe popular to some…but i think he is better at being associated with productions…I dont own a Jay-Z Cd, (though i own collision course) doubt I will, but i would listen to his music. He should stay retired, and focus his energy on his record company, and the rest of his businesses.
    MAd respect to him – but JAY – stay retired…

    I’m not gonna sit here and say I knew foe shoe he was gonna come back, but I aint dumb.

Plus da fact dat he wasn’t doin daaaattt great(not syain he didn’t do a good job) as El presidente, he had to come back.

  • SOUTHERN BOY

    THERE’S NO WAY IN HELL YOU CAN COMPARE A LYRICIST LIKE JAY TO AN INSIGNIFICANT RAPPER LIKE LIL WAYNE(WHOSE FIRST 3 OR 4 ALBUMS FLOPPED!)

OTHER TNAN THESE TWO MCs, LUDACRIS, NAS, JADAKISS, FABOLOUS, COMMON, KANYE& BEANIE SIGEL ARE THE ONLY ONES WORTH MENTIONING.

  • Thugstyle

    Jay Z is partially responsible for the state of hip hop right now. Look at his album features from 97 to 03 Full of south niggas. He stole they bounce style and commercialized. When other NY mCs werent tryna do that everyone focused on the south niggas to do that shit.

  • Made N Dade

    Jay-Z is a great artist but I wouldn’t consider him the best rapper alive. When someone (Cam’ron) put an 8 min exibition on how Jay stole lycial content from Slick Rick to 2pac(Who don’t like him)that ashame. He can be called the greatest artist alive because he make other people music sound better but the call him the geatest rapper alive or ever. Anyone with true intelligence know not even the best rapper on his own label because Nas is. As far as the best rapper ever ya’ll to stop disrespecting 2pac because Pac will beat Jay song for son anyday. Jay can never make the songs that Pac can make lets be real with it. One more thing stop disrespecing the South because if I can recall The south had a hot summer (Joc Ross ….)

To make the shit WAY more poppin though and to keep it 100% hood…….he should switch the title completely on some surprise shit to volume 4….what yall think……..haters fall back you look like you ate a dick for dinner

  • Chaz H.

    p.s……it’s only niggas who paint pictures with words who are considered greats u idiots……only new comers today I see doin that is Weezy (not even considered a newcomer to me but these little lean wit it rock wit it niggas dont know no better), Saigon, Pap……. and not many other mufuckers………Jay-z, BIGGIE, Scarface, BEANIE SIGEL, NAS, PAC……these are NEW niggas who painted pics if u can’t do that you can’t hate on nothing these niggas decide to do in the future

  • fade to black

    jay retired,set back and gave every rapper the chance and enough time to step up and take the throne and them mutha fuckas couldn’t even find it. now he’s coming back to get whats rightfully his(the whole fucking rap game). and you pussy niggas can’t realize that every hip hop fan owes him respect. the only nigga who droped a diss on jay that should have even been listened to is nas. not none of these unloyal bitch made dipset muthafuckas. and even if camrn did drop 8 minutes of jay bitting other rappers, jay got an uncounted number of lyrics that none of them or anybody else can fuck wit.i’m coppin his new album and if aint the best one yet then it is still going to be a classic. a cassic none of you haters aint got one of those.

  • http://XXL Chrone

    This nigga Jay Z on this album he probably gonna steal some mo rhymes
    from some rappers so that bitch should just stay in retirement

  • B.K.L.Y.N

    I am glad Jay-Z is back. Let’s not forget who introduced the world to Cistol and the true definition of how to get money. Jay-Z is also responsible for some of the biggest artist in the South ie… Rick Ross; Ludacris; Young Jezzy ; T.I just to name a few. The problem with some of the N.Y artist is that they have there own agendas, they don’t have time to do colaborations with other artist in other crews. If N.Y artist did like the South or West they would be eating better.
