Why "American Gangster" is the most crucial album of Jay-Z's career...

Everyone thought that "Kingdom Come" was so important in the progression of H.O. But realistically, we all knew that that album would sell based off of it being his comeback album. Why American is so significant is that it proves whether Jay has the ability to accurately convey a steady concept throughout an album. From what I've heard the album has some shining moments. My question is will it be a real match of the album or a Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz match.
(for all you Black Republicans out there, Nas is supposedly on Success, Jay wouldn't let anyone hear his verse)
