In support of his The Black Album — at the time billed as his final album — Jay Z hit up MSG to throw a “retirement party,” and was joined by The Roots, Beyoncé, Ghostface Killah, Mary J.

Thankfully for us, the retirement didn’t work out; he celebrated his latest number one album, Magna Carta…Holy Grail, not too long ago.
