Did anyone really think that Jay-Z was going to stay retired? All his records were multi-platinum, his girlfriend is multi-platinum, hell, bro burped the other day and it went gold.

Tonight's Midnight Movie is directed by Spike Lee in the back of a limo as the Jigga man waxes poetically and gets paid while being chauffeured around town.
