Jim Jones Officially Releases "Harlem's American Gangster" on February 19th, 2008
Features New Tracks and Much More
HARLEM, NY--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - The wait is over, as hip hop superstar Jim Jones
kicks off the New Year with a brand new mixtape, "Harlem's American
Gangster" on KOCH Records, which hits streets on February 19th, 2008. The
mixtape is hosted by Dame Dash and features the entire Byrdgang crew.
Jim Jones is currently recording a new album which will be released later
this summer via Columbia/KOCH, but fans won't have to wait that long to
hear new Jim Jones music.
Jones' latest album, "Hustler's P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment)," was
released in 2006 and became a monster hit, selling over 500,000 copies and
included the feel good anthem and Jim's signature song, "We Fly High,"
which has sold over 3.5 million digital and ringtone units combined.
"Harlem's American Gangtser" was previously available on a limited basis,
but the mixtape has been completely remixed/re-mastered and also features
new songs, including the track "Rockefeller Laws." When asked about this
latest inspiration, Jones had this to say, "Some people do soundtracks to
the movies about Harlem, we do soundtracks to the streets of Harlem, which
made us who we are today. Hustlers are some of the flyest people the world
has ever set their eyes on."
The first single "Love Me No More" is at urban radio now and a video for
the single will be shot shortly. It will be once again co-directed by Jim
Jones and RAGE, who also directed the smash videos for "We Fly High" and
the "We Fly High" REMIX.
