This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

November 21st – Jay-Z releases his 14th album, “Kingdom Come”, on Roc-A-Fella Records, on this day in 2006.

The multi-platinum selling “Kingdom Come”, which debuted at no.1 on the charts, was considered Jay-Z’s comeback album after he claimed he was retiring from studio recordings after 2003’s “The Black Album”

Production duties would be handled by Just Blaze, Syience, Dr. Dre, The Neptunes, DJ Khalil, Ne-Yo, Swizz Beatz, B-Money, Kanye West and Chris Martin of Coldplay.

“Kingdom Come” contained the hit singles, “Hollywood”, featuring Jay-Z’s wife Beyoncé, “30 Something”, “Lost One”, featuring Chrisette Michele and “Show Me What You Got”.

“Show Me What You Got” would be sort of a re-make of the instrumental “Show ‘Em What You Got” from Public Enemy’s 1988 classic sophomore album “It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back”.

Jay-Z’s track even samples the original by P.E.
