That same year, shortly after the December release of The Album, Teyana Taylor announced that she was retiring. Following her announcement, The Game penned a letter telling her NOT to retire.
Teyana Taylor said:
[I am] retiring this chapter of my story with the comfort that I can depart with peace of mind seeing that all the hard work & passion put in was indeed loved & supported somewhere in the world!
The songstress felt no mutualism between her and the label revealing:
I am going to feel underappreciated if I’m putting in 110% and my label is giving me – they’re reciprocating, what, 10% of that.
She also expressed her exasperation with the label Def Jam:
…I asked Def Jam to drop me on 10 different occasions because at this point I can’t let this kill me.
During a sit down (April 28) with free agent Cam Newton on his show, ‘Sip N’ Smoke With Cam Newton‘, Taylor opened up about being a mother, a wife, the love for her kids, her tomboy style, and more. However, that didn’t stop Cam Newton from asking for clarity about her music retirement.
He even showered her with praise in regards to her numerous roles as an actress, model, and go-to girl for a lot of hip hop heavyweights
Teyana Taylor was full transparent, saying:
I put in a lot of work…I felt like the label wasn’t really hearing me and seeing me. I felt underappreciated… It’s not that I retired permanently, its more like, I don’t want to move another inch for a company [G.O.O.D. Music].
G.O.O.D. Music label was founded by Kanye West back in 2004. In 2011, the label signed a distribution deal with Def Jam Records. Taylor released a total of three albums.
