      Don’t get it twisted, Jay-Z’s ‘American Gangster’, is not the same as the film’s ‘American Gangster’ Soundtrack. The soundtrack drops on November 6 and features classic music from Public Enemy, Bobby Womack, Sam & Dave and the Staples Singers.

      The first single from the album is “Do You Feel Me” by Anthony Hamilton produced by former Public Enemy producer, Hank Shocklee. Shocklee also assisted in scoring the film, with some of the instrumental tracks also on the soundtrack. The film, ‘American Gangster’, stars Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe and opens in theatres on November 2. Here’s the tracklisting for the soundtrack:

1). Do You Feel Me (Anthony Hamilton)

  1. Yep, the bootleg (quality far past excellent)….one would think that this was just an attempt to take away movie sales since it is a “black” movie…but anyway if the soundtrack is like the movie…i gotta get it
