For Jay-Z, 'American Gangster' album is the soundtrack of his life

“But mostly, I just pulled emotions from the film and not so much his particular story. It was the complexity of the human beings that I was drawn to. For most of the movie, you don't know who is the good guy or bad guy.”

Jay-Z didn't plan to make an album this year, but an early screening of American Gangster - the Ridley Scott film starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe -inspired him to create his own cautionary tale ... via The Clarion-Ledger

It's something when a gangster can respond to his own movie and to think he did it all for his family sickens me.
Makes all us honest people quite lost for words for the deeds we try to accomplish in Gods name.
But in my life I've even had an incident outside our family that shows me how deceitful and hateful humans can be supposely for the honor of their children and potential money gains.

It doesn't impress me that this potential gangster got a life. Don't care if I see the movie, either.
