Discover all of this album's music connections, watch videos, listen to music, discuss and while Jay mentions American Gangster and protagonist Frank Lucas directly, and intersperses some tracks with dialogue, the connection does not overshadow the album. It's not like he's yelling Shaft's Big Score 2K7 or Leonard Part Six, Part Two It's all as natural as Scarface riffing off Scarface. And that might be the most common complaint about the album - it's really just another case of Jay-Z being Jay-Z, albeit with different presentation. Other Jay-Z albums: The Brown Album.

So American Gangster doesn't quite work as a concept album, but it's difficult to imagine the record would be better if that concept had been fully realized and fleshed-out. Jay's evident obsession with the post-Don Imus furor over. And so the drug-dealer story serves an important purpose: It rips Jay out of the royal materialistic old-man haze that ruined Kingdom Come and recalls the titanic, invincible snarl that made him great in the first place. On American Gangster, he's fallen back in love with language, making slick puns and jamming his lines with internal rhymes and vivid, detailed images without letting those devices detract from the emotional punch of his mini-narratives. Album 2007 15 Songs. The wordplay was back, and so was the storytelling-from naïve rise American Dreamin to bitter regret Fallin , or, as Jay framed it on Roc Boys, black superhero music

  • I didn't expect much from this one ater the mild disappointment with Kingdom Come . The video to American Gangster made a good + lasting impressin recently, so i went back to check out this CD with new confidence and it didn't disapoint me at all....
    His rapstyle and delivery is in a class of his own - you hear that Lay-Z is in a zone and the lyics come from his dome directly to the microphone. His voice sits tight in the middle of the Stereo - Mix. A fantastic production + excellent mastering comes as a Bonus. The guests are well chosen, as usual : Lil' Wayne, Nas and his old buddy Beanie Sigel are on the harder tracks. Kanye West and Pharrel do appear on the more playful songs. Even his wife Beyoncè makes a few nice appearances here as a Background Singer.
    What makes this album so fantastic is the music ! I never heard a Rap album with so much going on musically. The samples are sounding so familiar, that you often think HIT even before the song is thru. And then the producers : Diddy and the Hit Makers LV & SEAN C produced most of the stuff and their tracks sound so good. You have a lot of real instruments , a drummer and a guitar player; sometimes even a Horn section, Pianos and so on. To make this album even better there still are a hand full of hardcore tracks by Just Blaze (on the Beanie Sigel collaboration) DJ Toomp and others. The Neptunes and even Jermaine Duprie add their special flavour to the product (JD produced the Nas / Jay-Z Track) . This LP is easily twice as good as the rushed Kingdom Come, close to The Blueprint + on the same level as The Black Album.
