Jay-Z Album: November 6th
So the rumors have been floating about for a while now. But a press release was officially released this morning with all the details of Jay Z’s new album American Gangster to be released on Tuesday November 6th, 2007. The album correlates with the movie American Gangster to be released November 2nd starring Denzel Washington and Russel Crowe. Here is an excerpt from the press release:
The conceptual, full body of work from the new album balances the line between pure entertainment and real life. JAY-Z draws upon past experiences, speaking to the harsh reality of the drug trade still taking place in our nation’s cities. While not glorifying the Frank Lucas story, JAY-Z articulates the lure of a gangster’s life and stands as an example of one who chose to leave those streets behind to go on and become one of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time.
