It says something about the quality of an album when people are still remixing tracks from a project five years after its initial release. This New Year’s, 9th Wonder decided to remix most of Jay-Z’s American Gangster. It is tough to upgrade joints like “Blue Magic” but with his own twists, 9th Wonder put his best foot forward on this project.
Giving “Blue Magic” a 70’s spin and adding some Curtis Mayfield vocals is a beautiful touch by 9th Wonder. The entire American Gangster original project exuded old school vibes. 9th just decided to take it to the next level on Black American Gangster.
