Can anyone honestly fuckin' remember if Jay-Z is supposed to be retired or coming back or ambivalent or what (this is hip-hop, where facts come to get crushed by boasts)? Anyways, The New York Times catches up with him as he sneaks into the studio to work on American Gangster, a concept album that will accompany the Ridley Scott/Denzel Washington film of the same name. Also, the Times' photographer gives us a great idea of what Jay-Z, currently 37, might look like at, say, 85. (Via Pop Candy)
