Jay Z's Retirement Suits Him Just Fine

Jay Z proudly flaunted his former occupation on his head Wednesday while walking around Manhattan.

Of course, he's heard all the criticism about the fact he used to sling drugs back in Brooklyn's Marcy Projects -- so, he's obviously not sweating his haters.

Can't say Jay forgets where he came from, but you gotta acknowledge how far he's come.

His smile here screams ... this phone call just made me a few mil!
