What was it like when Jay-Z came out of retirement?

I know Kingdom Come is looked at as a bad album, but when it was first announced, what was the reaction? Were people excited about Jay coming back with a new album? Or was it more like everyone was expecting it? What was the promo like?

Kingdom Come rollout felt rushed and clunky

the lead single was a let down too.

everything surrounding Kingdom come was fumbled

The more I think about this question.hiphop sound changed a lot from 03 to 06 and Jay z couldn’t keep up

The SOHH thread for that first KC track was insane. It was the title track right? The Rick James sample flip had people going crazy. I fukked with Show Me What You Got too, tho not as much. The actual album was pretty meh though to most people. I thought it was fine, and an interesting shift for Jay. It wasn't the triumphant shyt talking Jay I expected.
