To my beloved, think we need some time away
They say if you love it, you should let it out its cage
And fuck it, if it comes back you know it's there to stay

from Memphis Bleek (Ft. Jay Z) – Dear Summer Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Again, explaining that his retirement isn’t permanent: if the rap game (his “beloved”) comes back to him and asks him to return, he’ll do so. He plays with the cliche “if you love her set her free”

Jay-Z expressed a similar ambivalence on H.O.V.A.: “can’t leave rap alone, the game needs me”
