  Jay-Z to quit hip hop for films
Updated 23 January 2003, 17.23
Jay-Z
Jay-Z has said he's quitting the music biz to make films.

The hip hop star said his next record, The Black Album, will be his last.

And he's also writing his life story which will come out at the same time.

He fancies following Eminem's footsteps and acting in a movie.

New challenge

Jay-Z told NME.com: "There comes a time when you've got to go and challenge yourself with other areas, you know what I'm saying?"

"A feature length film would be cool. I've done pretty much everything in hip hop."

The rapper's also got his own range of clothes designs in the US.
