Jay-Z previwed tracks from his upcoming American Gangster album at a VH1 Storytellers lot in Brooklyn, according to the AP.
”American Gangster,” in theaters Nov. 2, chronicles the rise and fall of notorious Harlem drug lord Frank Lucas. Jay-Z said watching the film made him reflect on his own drug-slinging days and the dangers of that lifestyle.
”I was watching the movie and I was pulling emotions from the film,” the 37-year-old rapper told the crowd, which included girlfriend Beyonce, on Wednesday night.
