Shortly after Jay-Z announced that he planned to release his newest album, American Gangster, rival rapper and true Harlem-native Jim Jones proclaimed that the great HOVA had no right to release such an album (Jay was born in Brooklyn). In response to the project, Jones hooked up with Jay’s former partner at Roc-A-Fella, Dame Dash, and recorded a mixtape entitled Harlem’s American Gangster. After hearing the project, however, Koch Records (who owns half of Jones recording contract) decided it was far too good to be released as just a mixtape. The lead song from the album, Love Me No More, has been remixed by DJ Khalil and added to the fray is West Coast giant, The Game. The project is set for release on February 19th.
