The rapper, 40, ‘retired’ from music in 2003 to take up the position of CEO of Def Jam records before making a comeback. He already has a “Marlon Brando retirement plan” in mind for himself and wife Beyonce Knowles in the future.
Explaining he wants to live on a private island, employ a “genius chef”, smoke cigars, drink fine wines and get fat, the ’99 Problems’ star said: “That’s what I enjoy. That’s the payback for all the hard work. Beyonce will be on the island too. But I don’t think she plans to get as fat as me. But I’m going to be fat.”
Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z also revealed one of the high points of his career was when U2 front man Bono invited him and Beyonce to holiday at the ‘One’ hit maker’s home in St. Tropez, France.
Jay-Z added: “That’s an invite everyone cherishes. Bono is an ambassador for the game…He’s still a musician trying to make the ultimate album.” – according to Q Magazine.
