Don't do it!

We love Jay-Z. If nothing else the man has produced to the best hip-hop albums ever (Reasonable Doubt and The Blueprint Volume 1) and in his latter days, his headline appearance at Glastonbury, flying in the face of tiresome NME-reading Rockists, who were adamant that Glasto was a rock festival (it’s not, and never was), and that he shouldn’t have been headlining.

However, as much as we love the man, we would probably have preferred it if he hadn’t come back after he announced his retirement, especially now that he appears to be sliding more and more into old man status with each passing day. Take his latest move for example, being a special guest (support act) on U2’s 360 Degrees tour in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Auckland in New Zealand: why would you take a support slot with a load of wrinkled old dad-rockers, Jiggaman? You’re much better than them. Bah.

‘It was important to the band that we were able to bring the whole 360 Degrees production to Australia and New Zealand so fans could experience the latest of U2's legendary productions,’ said the band’s manager Paul McGuinness. BOOOOOOOOOO.
