0.0 Maxwell A. Harkness | April 29th 08

Jay-Z produces another good album, and though at times Jay and his producers screw up (Sweet, I Know), He shows that he still can rhyme at Black Album/ Blueprint levels. Despite being outshined by Nas on Success, Jay uses his most complex flow in years (No Hook), while maintaining his status as the King of The Roc (Roc Boys). The production on the album is solid and Jay's rapping is his best since, well, The Black Album. Another good album by Jay, after one of his mediocre albums (Kingdom Come).

The story is a bit flimsy, but the concept is excellent.

1.5 very poorNasShadyBiggie | December 15th 10

oh my god, this is awful. jays flow is somehow worse then i ever thought it could be. it honestly sounds like
he's not even trying. none of the songs are any good. Party life and sweet are some of the worst songs i've
ever heard. success woudve been absolute trash without nas, but he still couldnt make the song any better
considering how much jay sucked. hello brooklyn is also very boring (why is lil wayne on a song about
brooklyn?). i know is the definition of hip pop. pray is also pretty much garbage, and none of the other
tracks are even worth mentioning (no hook is painful to listen to, he can't spit evenly and the short hook in
between his verses feels like heaven... but then Jay starts rapping again) once again jay you prove to be the
most overrated rapper ever. its honestly painful to hear his flow/lyrics and know that people seriously
consider him to be the best rapper ever.

3.0 goodKronzo | July 11th 13

This album is the definition of a mixed bag. There are some great tracks like "Ignorant Shit" and "I Know", with great flow, and really lame tracks like "American Dreamin'" and "Hello Brooklyn 2.0" (which could have done without the Lil Wayne feature). The production falters occasionally but is solid for the most part. While American Gangster isn't terrible by any means, it just sounds like Jay-Z on autopilot... Which just makes me want to listen to his better albums.

5.0 classicGvictor | March 18th 08

An album based on a movie. Clever. Maybe not, though. That's of absolutely no importance, however. The album's great, great, great. Better than The Blueprint, even. It bears quite a few similarities to it, except with more memorable production, better hooks. Possibly best album of 2007.
