Kingdom Come is cool i kinda expected like a comeback version of The Black Album. How can I explain it, um like how Jay sounded like I'm Great and I'm gone now, on The Black Album. Kingdom Come has a little of that but not as much. "The Prelude" is dope pure crack, beat wise lyric wise straight crack. "Oh My God" is cool but it's like eh okay. "Kingdom Come" is dope i like this track. "Show Me What You Got" is hot nice beat, typical Jay single. "Lost One's" is great the whole album should've been more expressive like this track "Beach Chair" and "Minoritiy Report". To me, after "Do You Wanna Ride" the album loses steam. Nice but Jay could can do better than this. "Hollywood" now officialy the Worst Jay-Z song i've ever heard. 3.5/5

Worse than the track before it? "Anything (featuring Usher & Pharrell) cause that is the worse sh*t ever, along with that Sunshine track he did.

Hmm and is it me or did he make an entire album without biting one B.I.G. line? Or line from anyone for that matter?

HipHop is dead > Kingdom Come

It's the chic thing to hate Jay-Z right now.

And Nas for that matter.

fu*k it, to hate anyone that matter. There hasn't been a general consensus of a dope album in a longggggggggggggggg time.

People should've woken up by now. This album took a while to sink in, but it's damn dope and much better than alotta the other mediocre CD's dropped by artists recently (Game, Jeezy).

Beach Chair and Lost Ones are 2 of the best tracks this year.

Album is a 4. Beats are kinda lame. Album feels too commercial at times. But lyrically Jay still at the top of his game.

Could've done without "hollywood" though. Put that sh*t on Beyonce album not Jays. Come on now.

Jay is my favorite but it could have done without "anything" and "hollywood".
Black Republican should have replaced one of those two songs...

After a couple of months of listening to the album, i give it a 4.5! I feel this album might be a little too old for some. Thats why some dislike it.

"4. Jay-z: Kingdom Come

High point: Beach chair

Low point: Hollywood or Anything (depends on which is single 3)

Like with every jay album of late you are either gonna love it or hate it for some reason (I'll give you a guess) however this one truely falls in the grey area of his collection it has points that are great, points that are blah and points where jay is down right lazy one things for sure this album is not for the younger crowd ( 20 and under stay away ). I'll start with the great, when jay is on his game he's on his game The standout tracks IMO are "beach chair" the flow is stupid on that ,"do you wanna ride" and "Lost Ones" these tracks are the best album has to offer as far as lyrics goes with "kingdom Come" "and "Minority Report" as an honorable mentions. Tracks like "dig a hole" '30 something" and "I made it" are going to be in that grey area where some like them and some don't I happen to like all three. Now on to the bad Depending on which on becomes a single the bad is either gonna be hollywood or anything they both are wack to me simply because they aren't needed atleast I see why he did hollywood though. the lazy award goes to "oh my god" this is a good track but I feel jay could have k!lled this harder than he did next would be "trouble" for pretty much the same reason as "Oh my god" also I think dre was kinda slacking on the production side of things but hey jay ok'd it so, The overall production ranges from Great to lazy aswell chris martin produced "beach chair" comes off as wierd at first but its brilliant at the same time, Dr. Dre brings the album down with "trouble" I think jay shoulda got 9th wonder to do that joint, "Minority repor"t and " 30 something" are both solid efforts from dre though, "Do u wanna ride" is another love/hate beat its cool but I think kanye did better work for nas and lupe, Swizz came through with a banger on "Dig a hole" but Just blaze gets the award for best produced tracks he k!lls it back to back to back with bangers, Oh my god,kingdom come and show me what you got. This is not jay's best effort he could have done better but this is easily one of 2006's best and jay holds his own with his peers its a good album that grows on you but its not great like some of the others I listed."
