Don't everybody like the smell of gasoline?

Fans claim that this is underrated, yet it never really builds steam until the last third...

...kinda lame, but fits the feelings I have for the gangster cult: not bad, but kinda lame...

boring. got old too quick and there were no standout songs. the concept of the LP was gimmicky and the songs didnt even have much to do with it.

American Gangster is what Kingdom Come should’ve been.

One of the deep-cuts of Hov's discography that nicely fills out his resume for the job he doesn't even need to apply for.

GOAT.
