Each track on American Gangster matches to a theme or emotion that Frank Lucas was experiencing during the movie American Gangster.

Frank attends a boxing match in a floor length Chinchilla fur coat. It’s here that the lead investigator recognises him, and begins to tear apart his criminal enterprise.

Jay describes the moment that dawns on Frank: He’s bitten off too much. He’s taken on too big of an operation, and it was foolish to allow it to grow to such a state. It samples “Fell For You” by The Dramatics and features a haunting Bilal, describing the trap that Jay has now set for himself.
