JAY-Z Nation will also air a special live concert playback from JAY-Z forthcoming performance at the House of Blues in Chicago as well as special editions of Street Certified, DJ Green Lantern: The Invasion, and The Nation's Top 20 Hip Hop Countdown hosted by JAY-Z.

"JAY-Z is one of the preeminent creative forces in the music industry. Over the last decade, he has truly changed the face of hip-hop and music culture," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS President of Entertainment and Sports. "We are excited to have him take over our airwaves and provide our listeners with this unique and exclusive experience."

American Gangster, JAY-Z's tenth studio album, is inspired by the film with the same title based on the life of drug kingpin Frank Lucas. After screening the film, JAY-Z was inspired to create, American Gangster, his first 'conceptual album' depicting the birth, rise and fall of a hustler.
