Gather ‘Round

Jay_Z_AG.jpgWho can forget Jay-Z's The Blueprint, Volume 1? And who can forget the equally memorable 2003 VH1 Storytellers episode showcasing Jay-Z, his many hits, and The Roots (with Jaguar Wright on vocals) as his backing band? Well, if you loved Jigga's first Storytellers, this Thursday it will be like Christmas a month early when Jay's new hour-long episode premieres on VH1. Although Jay-Z's American Gangster album was inspired by the film American Gangster (read: not featured in the movie), Jay connected with the film on many levels and decided to release his album close to the film's release date. The episode of Storytellers was shot October 24 at a soundstage in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, mere steps from Jay's childhood stomping grounds. This time around the "Roc Boys" will be providing  musical accompaniment, and Jay will have some collabos, including appearances by Beyoncé, Chingy, Kanye West, and Rihanna.

Storytellers: Jay-Z, Life of an American Gangster
airs 11/8 at 9PM EST on VH1.
