Jay-Z is taking over Sirius Satellite Radio’s hip-hop channel — for a week.

The 37-year-old rap mogul will debut as host of Jay-Z Nation on Monday, Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. said Friday. He will take the helm at Hip-Hop Nation channel 40.

Jay-Z’s latest album, “American Gangster,” will be released Tuesday. The CD takes its title and inspiration from the new movie co-starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe about Harlem drug lord Frank Lucas.

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. on the "Let's Be Cops," red carpet, Selena Gomez is immortalized in wax and more.

“Jay-Z is one of the pre-eminent creative forces in the music industry,” Sirius executive Scott Greenstein said in a statement. “Over the last decade, he has truly changed the face of hip-hop and music culture.”

Jay-Z Nation will feature music from the rapper’s albums and songs by his favorite hip-hop artists.
