Jay-Z has the game on lock, which means if he wants to put making music on hold, he is at liberty to do so.

What makes it even more special is his reasoning. “I thought I would be more inspired to have all these new feelings to talk about, but I really just want to hang out with my daughter,” Shawn Carter told Billboard at his press conference at the Philadelphia Art Museum on Monday.

“I want to enjoy this time for what it is. I’m sure that bug to get back in the studio will come back at some point.”

But before he spends his father-daughter quality time, Hov announced that he will be curating and headlining the two-day “Budweiser Made In America” music festival in Philly Labor Day weekend.

Hey, a daddy’s gotta do what a daddy’s gotta do.
