T’was December 2007.The Frank Lucas biopic American Gangster starring Denzel Washington had recently been released and Jay-Z was tapped to provide the theme music.The movie ended up being a success,even with the questionable selection of Cuba Gooding Jr. to play Nicky Barnes.The album released by Jay Z,also named American Gangster worked as both a movie soundtrack and as an official Jigga album release. The album did well,giving us the singles;”Roc Boys (And The Winner Is)” and the club anthem “I Know”.
As with every big album that drops,inevitably a million remix albums follow,most of which usually flat out suck.However,American Gangster brought about a bevy of strong and dope remixes.So,leafing through a collection of old music,the dopest and most likely slept on remix of American Gangster was found.Enjoy ya’ll.Download link is below.
