1. 9th Wonder Remixes Jay-Z For Black American Gangster (AUDIO).

    In the tradition of full remix album projects like God’s Stepson (i.e. Nas’ God’s Son remixed) and Black Is Back (i.e. Jay-Z’s The Black Album remixed), 9th Wonder re-does the tracks for Jay-Z ‘s 2007 American Gangster soundtrack and emerges with Black American Gangster . And while the timing may be quizzical, honestly some of us around here never paid that close attention to American Gangster anyways, so we can just pretend it’s dropping on its heels rather than several years later. Plus props to 9th for sampling Curtis Mayfield singing “jigga” on the new “No Hook.” Listen and download below.
