After seeing an advanced screening of the new Denzel Washington film, American Gangster, Jay-Z went straight to the studio. No, he didn’t forget his cell phone; he merely remembered he is HOVA and who better to make a concept album about the American Gangster image than himself? Although fellow rappers Common and RZA will get their shine on in the film itself, the unofficial soundtrack to one of the year’s biggest new films will be helmed by Mr. S Dot Carter. The first street single off the project is entitled Blue Magic and produced by Change Clothes collaborator, Pharrell Williams.
