Can't Leave Rap Alone The Game Needs Me

The ruler is back, and it looks like it's still the winter's turn as Hov plans to release his album "The American Gangster" on November 6th. The news was announced this morning in an article in the New York Times.

The album is inspired by the Denzel Washington movie of the same name set to release the Friday before. While Kingdom Come showed that Jay "doesn't live in Brooklyn anymore" the American Gangster goes back to the blueprint that was laid out on Reasonable Doubt, gritty street tales of a Marcy Projects hustler with a Lexus. Although it's inspired by the American Gangster it's just as much Carlito's Way even to the point where a young Benny Blanco (Lil Wayne who's album Carter III is set to release December 18th) lurks in the corner.

Please don’t compare me to other rappers. Compare me to trappers.
I’m more Frank Lucas than Ludacris. And Lude is my dude, I ain’t trying to dis.
Just like Frank Lucas is cool, but I ain’t tryin’ to snitch.
I’m-a follow the rules, no matter how much time I’m-a get.
I’m-a live and die with the decisions that I’m-a pick.

Expect a new track from Hov to leak today as well.
