Jay-Z Reveals Secret Concept Album

  • Jay-Z, that scamp, comes clean to the New York Times this morning about his secret recording of a concept album inspired by (and, with any luck, will give a boost to) the forthcoming film American Gangster about a 1970s Harlem kingpin. The film stars Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe and is directed by Ridley Scott. “It immediately clicked with me … Like Scarface, or any one of those films, you take the good out of it, and you can see it as an inspiring film,” Jay says. Trapped in the Closet this is not. [NYT]
