The American Dream is the name of an EP and DVD movie by Mike Jones. It was released through Ice Age Entertainment, Asylum Records and Warner Bros. Records on November 20, 2007. It was originally supposed to be released as an album but was down graded to an EP due to low confidence from the label. The EP includes two songs, "Knock You Down" and "Fuckin' Problems", from Mike Jones' last album Who Is Mike Jones?.

The release date of the album was originally scheduled for numerous releases between November 2006 and late 2007. His second album is called The Voice.[3]

Producers on the EP are said to be Salih Williams of Carnival Beats and Myke Diesel. Guests are Lil Wayne, Beyoncé, Keri Hilson, and Drake.

The EP successfully charted on multiple Billboard music charts, having been featured on the Billboard 200, peaking at number 183. It performed considerably better on the Top Rap Albums chart, peaking at number 10, and number 28 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
