Jay-Z recently discussed the condition of hip hop and where he plans to go with his album American Gangster:

“When a guy says – and this is definitely no disrespect, because everybody has their place – but when a guy says, ‘I can make a mil saying nothing on a track,’ you know you have reached a bad place. Not only did you think about it, you said it. So, [Hip-Hop] is way past salvaging. So, I’m just gonna do what I do. I’m just gonna go over ‘there’ – way over there. This is why this is what it is. I’m going so far over there.”

“What I really plan to do is shoot [American Gangster, the album] as a movie. Like a better ‘Streets is Watching’. Doing it like a musical. Real stories and get somebody in there that’s [going do to]…real writing. Someone to shoot it like ‘Godfather.’ I know that’s a little ungracious, but that’s how you gotta place it to get somewhere near.”

    go head jay, make the music, cuz u still got classic and can’t nobody dispute that

  • Smartie

    You wanna shoot it like a movie ? Sorry that’s what Trapped In The Closet parts 1-473 did before you Homes. Might wanna go do some other unoriginal crap like a remix to Li’l Flips Game Ova. Cause in this case, it’s true.

  • Alexa

    is he doing this to intentionally coincide with the upcoming Denzel/Russel Crowe film “American Gangster?”

  • JJ

    He’s going to make a movie of an album about a movie. Sounds fascinating.

  • 504okaay

    AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO DIDN’T UNDERSTAND 85% OF WHAT HE SAID ??

  • NoWAY

    Ok but when you do this take off the hot pink satin jacket.

  • sylvia

    I love him but he looks TERRIBLE in that pic :(

  • Mahogany

    Yes to Alexa.

    He’ll be on the soundtrack.

    Not sure if his whole album will be though.

    I know the movie will have some good “oldies” in it.

    Mayfield, Womack, hopefully the Delfonics….

    Geez, I’m only 28 and already craving the oldies.

    And a Jodeci comeback……..

    I am a dreamer by nature

    504, I thought it…you said it!! I love jay and thought it was just me, but I am like WTH is he saying?!?! It’s a tad bit incomprehensible.

    BTW, saw an early preview of American Gangsta and it’s awesome!! When it’s released in Nov. I definitely plan to see it again.

    So true. I just hope with is big scale “interpretation” of a movie he hires real actors. And doesn’t let his creole skeeo aka Beyonce stink up the screen w/ her bad acting.
