People can say what they want about Jay-Z, but it's hard to deny what a great rapper he is. Though it seemed that a lot of his Kingdom Come cd went above people's heads, his American Gangster album is just what the public and hip-hop heads wanted from him.
These performances complete with a live band show that you don't need to dance to put on a great show. Here's Jay-Z performing some strong cuts from his instant-classic American Gangster album.
