Producer: Just Blaze
Album: Kingdom Come
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam


Despite the fact that critics, fans, plants, and animals alike all hated Jay's post–Black Album comeback, there was no denying there were a few heaters on Jay's Kingdom Come.

Sure you got excited when you saw Dr. Dre's name in the credits, but it was actually Just Blaze who delivered the albums best bangers. The obvious standout being the title track, which flipped Rick James' popular “Super Freak” sample in a way never seen or heard. Yeah, Jay was CEO'ing all over the track, but it was the hungriest he'd sound throughout the whole album. He boldly claimed that he was both NYC and hip-hop's savior, and while the album wasn't great, there was no denying the fact that we were thrilled to have him back.
