Damon Dash suggested to Bossip yesterday that Joe Camel should retire and he isn’t the only one not feelin the old man’s new sh*t. The NY Post reports:

MAYBE Jay-Z should have stayed retired. The rapper and president of Def Jam recordings has been breaking his back promoting his new album, “American Gangster,” which is “inspired” by the movie. An industry insider says, “He is scrambling – the first single, ‘Blue Magic,’ isn’t being played on radio. It’s the first time in his career he’s not doing well.” Jay-Z will perform the album live on VH1’s “Storytellers” on Thursday. He’ll also tour to “create buzz,” and Def Jam shelled out $500,000 for the first video, added the source. Jay-Z’s rep, Jana Fleishman, says, “It’s not true at all. It’s a conceptual album, so we’re not focusing on one single. He was inspired by the movie. And we tour to support every release.”

We think those sold out Amercian Gangster concerts were probably some scalpers and Def Jam. What’s wrong with leaving the game as a legend-with your head held up high vs people pushing your old ass off the mic?
