In celebration of his new album, American Gangster, a collection of songs inspired by the movie starring Denzel Washington and Russel Crowe, Jay-Z is lining up five shows across the country at intimate venues. Luckily for us, Hova is kicking it off right here.

On November 6, the same date the album drops, the DefJam CEO takes the stage at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. Tickets go on sale Friday, for the price of $150. That's a lot of "Dead Fuckin' Presidents," but you don't get to see Jay everyday.

Listen to "Roc Boys," the second single off American Gangster after the jump.
