10 Celebrity 'Fake-Out' Retirements
In 2003, rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z announced that The Black Album would be his last recording.
Going out in style, he presided over a charity concert at Madison Square Garden, a self-described "retirement party" caught on camera for the film Fade to Black.
Three years later, the release of Kingdom Come ended what Jay-Z himself told Entertainment Weekly was "the worst retirement in history."He may have overstated things a bit. During his free time the rapper solidified his credentials as a businessman, becoming CEO of Def Jam Recordings and part owner of the New Jersey Nets. He also started dating Beyonce, certainly a step up from the extra golf and early bird dinner specials to which we mere mortals aspire.
