'Show me what you got' got a lot of rotation at parties, different demographic crowds too.

Intro is exceptional. Great movie reference.

Blaze kinda dropped the ball on a few joints, but the good was good.

The Dame and Cam shots/songs were what people were checking for.

To be honest I never belived fully he was retired because his verse on college dropout 04 “fire” that and common’s verse on that album where the best 16s on the project

Dear summer 05 I think on Memphis bleek album (I think) fire ppl played that song the whole summer

So I thought maybe he was falling back not fully retired

But both kingdom come and hip hop is dead I waited at zia records because sometimes they would do midnight releases and I’ve come to respect kingdom come but it was nowhere near the black album but he started getting back in his bag on American gangster and bp3 I was very happy with

shyt did like the highest first week sales of Jay's career. Like 700k or some shyt.
People were hype.

The rollout for that album was ridiculous. Jay had HP commercials, some Hangar tour that coincided with NFL, and he was doing deals with world leaders in regard to selling water.

Wayne sounding like a young tiger in conjunction with Jay sounding like an out of breath old man
