It's more a companion piece than a soundtrack, but Jay-Z's latest defiance of the commonly accepted meaning of "retirement" has plenty in common with the Denzel Washington-Russell Crowe movie of the same name.

I'd have to agree...'cept most of my friends are '40 something' and we think even LESS of it. Folks are makin' a WHOLE lot of money off some manufactured beats, lyrical gymnastics and over-sexed videos (which often have NOTHING to do with the music content and is often not based in REALITY). Hopefully the generation of music consumers that gravitate to that genre will outgrow it and yearn for music with greater context, content and relevance. But what do I know, I'm just a non-Thug comment'n on craziness I scan online while I'm on another mindless conference call at the office!
