      Jay-Z is gearing up to drop his new album, “American Gangster” on November 6, a thematic album inspired by the Denzel Washington film of the same name. Over the weekend, Jigga taped an episode of VH1’s Storytellers show called “VH1 Storytellers: Jay-Z: Life of an American Gangster.”

      Similar to Jay-Z’s MTV Unplugged episode in 2001, the episode features Jay-Z performing tracks from the upcoming album backed by a 12-piece band. Jay will also share the inspiration and stories behind each track. Look for the episode to air on November 8 on VH1. Here’s the tracklisting to “American Gangster:”

  1. well im still waiting on kingdom come but in the mean time, why did he name the album american gansta if you know what i mean. i had jay albums when him and dame was out the trunk in jersey. know body really knew his work. this new joint though reminds me of the old jay. no wut i mean.
