yea Kanye got it...
i wouldnt say he revived jay-Z's career but he did help Jay-Z (along with Just Blaze) respect from the critics with a classic in the blueprint.
and rumored to do the same thing with Mos Def, Nas, etc....

You might laugh, but Salaam Remi:
The Fugees- irrelevant until the Salaam Remi produced "Nappy Headz" remix and he also had the single to their biggest album in "Fugee-La" for The Score
Nas- Yes, Stillmatic was Nas's ressurection, but "Made You Look" and "I Can" are Nas's biggest hits. He was a major contributor to God's Son which made critics recognize that Nas's comeback wasn't a fluke.
A few other producers:
The Neptunes: Snoop Dogg (gave Snoop new identity after No Limit), LL Cool J (they gave him his first platinum album in years with 10)
Timbaland- Fabolous ("Make Me Better" was the single that pushed From Nothing To Something gold after Fab had been away from the game for 2.5 years and a label switch), Lil' Kim ("Jump Off" was Kim's comeback after Notorious K.I.M.),

kanye did save jayz ass
when bp2 dropped it was knayes idea to get beyonce on the me and my girlfriend song, he thought of the concept while he was driving down the chi listening to 7 days theory and he went and told his idea to jay
anyways jay had a pop record and beyonce helped jays career
so kanye and beyonce have aided jays life support machine in many ways...
