Jay-Z said: "It was the worst retirement in history."
Since his retirement two years ago, Jay-Z has gone on a world tour, performed on hit records with Beyonce, and has worked as CEO of Def Jam Recordings.
Now he is ready to come out of retirement and grace us with his new album: "Kingdom Come."
"Something, when you love it, is always tugging at you and itching, and I was putting it off and putting it off. I started fumbling around to see if it felt good," he said.
"Kingdom Come" will hit stores this fall, Entertainment Weekly magazine reports in its new issue, due on newsstands Monday.
