Jay Z:: Kingdom Come (Album Review)

And the award for most unnecessary album of the year goes to the self-anointed “Michael Jordan of recordin’,” whose comeback has been pretty much guaranteed from the moment he announced his doubtful “retirement” with the Black Album in 03. Post-What More Can I Say?, Jay proves that, yes, he really has nothing more to say except to state the fact that he’s back (“What you want me to do? I’m sorry! I’m back”). If you care, the ornate single Show Me What You Got is the best song on the album – otherwise, the high-effort production by Just Blaze, Dr. Dre, DJ Khalil and fish-miles-from-water Chris Martin is as vapid as the rhymes. I can’t believe Nas’s album got delayed for this bullshit. Retire for real now, please. (Jason Richards)
