Jay-Z and Prince: The Black Album

Promoted as The Funk Bible, Prince's Black Album was originally supposed to be released in December 1987. The album, which had no printed titled, artist name, production credits or anything other than the black sleeve that it came in, wasn't released until 1994. Nine years later, Jay-Z released his very own The Black Album, which at the time was supposed to be his final studio album.
