Official Jay-Z ‘American Gangster’ Tracklisting

blame it on Shake October 16, 2007

The days are counting down until Jay-Z drops his first ever “concept album”. While most fans (including myself) are anticipating this album more than anything … some HAVE to wonder what the deal is with track four?

1. Intro
2. Pray
3. American Dreamin
4. Hello Brooklyn 2.0 f. Lil Wayne
5. No Hook
6. Roc Boys (And The Winner Is…)
7. Sweet
8. I Know
9. Party Life
10. Ignorant Shit f. Beanie Sigel
11. Say Hello
12. Success f. Nas
13. Fallin
14. Blue Magic (Bonus Track)
15. American Gangster (Bonus Track)

I’m not sure of the reasoning behind it nor the quality of the track, but it’s definitely a weird situation. For one … Lil Wayne goes from being “the best rapper alive, since the best rapper retired” to the self-proclaimed “best rapper alive” oh … and “better than Jay-Z”. And what about that title of the track? Hello Brooklyn 2.0? Wayne’s not from Brooklyn, shit … he’s not even from NY! What does a New Orleans’ representative have with being on a BK joint? We’ll just have to wait and see.
