JAY Z and CLIPSE
Clipse-Mr. Me Too ft Pharrell

Apparently Pitchfork agrees, giving Jay'z Kingdom Come a 5.0 out of 10. Highlights of the review:
"...we didn't expect the young, brash Jigga ... would be dropping Gwyneth Paltrow's name in a rap song. Twice he addresses his recent heavily publicized boycott of Cristal champagne which even he acknowledges is unimportant. But that's Kingdom Come: Jay boringly rapping about boring stuff and being totally comfortable with it."
"Just Blaze's flip of the Allman Brothers' "Whipping Post" on "Oh My God" is a pretty good example of his new stadium rap sound, and his "Kingdom Come" take on Rick James is pretty clever. But the latter has been sitting on the internet for a long time which means Jay-Z now gets Just sorta Blaze instead full-on Blaze."
"It's never a good sign when Chris Martin of Coldplay makes the best track on your record, but that may be the case with Kingdom Come."
"It is the first album in Jay-Z's career that doesn't sound like he got first choice from his producers, and one has to wonder where the much-talked-about Timbaland songs went (FutureSex/LoveSound, perhaps?)."
