Jay-Z 'Kingdom Come' album cover

Jim Farber of the New York Daily News reviewed Jay-Z’s new album ‘Kingdom Come’, remarking that “there’s a familiarity to the music that accompanies his raps, showing that Jay isn’t growing in those areas so much as maintaining his turf.” Farber added, “Luckily, Jay continues to spit out raps with a seemingly effortless density. He can flow faster than Twista, bob and weave through his cadences more nimbly than a young LL Cool J, and connect ideas and contexts better than any emcee alive. Given this, it’s no surprise the album features a bunch of guest R&B singers but no guest rappers.” The entire review at nydailynews.com has since been removed.
