Recently, Jay-Z sat down with Gayle King for a conversation about his life and career. As you may expect, the conversation eventually shifted over to his music and whether or not he was interested in dropping something new. Overall, Jay would be down to come out with a new project. Although it has to be something meaningful. In the clip below, Jay explains that making music for the sake of it just isn’t something that he wants to do at this stage of his career or his life.

“I already [used the word ‘retirement’], I can’t do that ever again,” Jay explained. “I’ll say I wanna make music, but it has to be something important. I don’t wanna just make a bunch of tunes. That’s not gonna serve me. It won’t feed me, first of all. I have to be saying something important. It has to mean something, you know? It has to mean something to a larger society.” This is line with an album like 4:44 which is filled with personal experience and introspective thoughts.
