After a very lukewarm return album with Kingdom Come, JAY Z was bombarded with a myriad of questions surrounding his skill-set. Does he still have it? Can he still drop another dope album?

Inspired by the movie American Gangster anchored by Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, Jay scripted scintillating tales of the street life. Jay dug in the depths of his creativeness and injected cold-hearted bars into our lives. “Say Hello,” “Ignorant Sh*t,” “Pray” “Success” and “I Know” were some of his best tracks on the acclaimed project.

AG encapsulated everything we grew to love Jay for. Regardless of whether he’s laced in the best suits, his heart still lies dormant in the streets, and this album is proof.
