According to a statement made by Jin, the Freestyle Fridays champ and Ruff Ryder MC Jin announced yesterday that he's putting his career on hold.
I would like to say best of luck to Jin, his unique style and battle superiority will always be remembered and appreciated. We are sorry to hear him leave, but if that's what he really needs then so be it.

Jiggaman recently listed today's top lyricists in an interview with DJ Envy. Upon being asked what artists he respected lyrically, Hov replied, "I mean everybody is doing their thing. I guess that's a political answer. Nas, of course," Jay revealed before pausing and hesitantly adding, "50 Cent, Em, I forgot about Em." Envy immediately retorted that 50 knew how to make songs, but didn't rank on his personal lyrical list. Jigga then offered "In that case you wouldn't put Pac there or you wouldn't put Big." Young also denied reports that he was set to release a new solo album later this year. "It's just really about if I'm fiending for it. I just can't escape it. I'm not just gonna stay out the game because I said I am if I'm missing it like that," Jay offered. "I gotta just truly miss it and be fiending to do it."
