â€œWhat I really plan to do is shoot [American Gangster, the album] as a movie. Like a better Streets is Watching.â€ Jay-Z told AllHipHop.com during a recent interview. â€œDoing it like a musical. Real stories and get somebody in there thatâ€™s [going do to].real writing. Someone to shoot it like â€˜Godfather.â€™ I know thatâ€™s a little ungracious, but thatâ€™s how you gotta place itâ€¦â€
Wait a movie I thought his album was the soundtrack to the American Gangster movie.
