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
