Jay-Z Talks to the Times

American Gangster Jay-Z album
"American Gangster" the movie should be the #1 film easily this past weekend. Several friends have seen it and have given it the thumbs up, so it sounds like a definite "must see". Even though the film is lengthy it features two of the top actors of the time right now, with Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington. The movie is also the inspiration for the album "American Gangster" by Jay-Z, set to drop this Tuesday November 6th. Jigga said he wasn't ready to bring a new album so fast, but it appears an early viewing of the movie really set off his emotions and stoked his creative fires. That's usually when some of the best material comes out, so this could be rap album of the year.

The Los Angeles Times features an article about Jay in which he discusses the tough road he's traveled from his old neighborhood in the Marcy Projects all the way up to his current stature as a CEO, part NBA-owner and entrepreneur. Read "Jay-Z's Hard Truths" here.
