According to hip-hop personality Miss Info, the mixtape is a direct response to Jay-Z’s new concept album, American Gangster, the unofficial soundtrack to the Denzel Washington flick of the same name. Both discs will hit shelves on the same day.
Adding insult, to what might be seen as an already brazen move, Jones tapped Hov’s former business partner and fellow Harlomite Dame Dash to host his disc.
In an interview with Info, Jones said that the mixtape is his way of “getting a piece of the current Mr. Untouchable vs American Gangster attention.”
Though Jimmy’s not really a fan of either of the street hustler legends..
“Nicky Barnes (Mr. Untouchable) and Frank Lucas (of American Gangster) was both snitches so neither one of them were real American Gangsters to me,” the capo said.
