Jay-Z Comes Out of Retirement

In a recent interview, rapper Jay-Z announces that he is coming out of retirement - for a while - to go on tour.

The Def Jam Records president plans to tour this September and October- but not in the U.S. He is opting instead to perform in around the world in such cities as London, Seoul, Beirut, Dubai, Johannesburg and Sydney.
Even though Jay is gearing up for an autumn  tour, running a record label and partially-owning an NBA basketball team (New Jersey Nets), he still manages to make time for his leading lady: superstar singer and actress Beyoncé Knowles.
