Jay-Z Reportedly Working On

Jay-Z set to score "The Great Gatsby" along with The Bullitts' Jeymes Samuel.

When Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church In The Wild” appeared in the trailer to The Great Gatsby earlier in the year, not much was made of the song’s appearance but it now seems that Jay-Z’s involvement with the film may be much greater.

According to The Huffington Post, the rap Titan has reportedly been tapped to assist in creating the score for the Baz Luhrmann-directed film along with The Bullitts’ Jeymes Samuel.

While Jay-Z’s involvement in writing the score has yet to be officially confirmed, Samuel did send out this Tweet on December 30: “Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!”

As one of The Great Gatsby’s score composers, Jay-Z will join the likes of fellow artists including Pharrell Williams and RZA who have both worked on the scores to various films.

The Great Gatsby stars Leonardo Dicaprio and Tobey Maguire and will hit theaters on May 10, 2013.

      Dude I cant believe this comment. Respect! This is what I think about that f*ggot. He ruined the NBA 2K13. This is the first time I couldn't play for a long time bcuz of hearing disgusting tracks. His old ass tracks, his boyfriend's tracks and the original versions of the tracks sampled and he put even his freestyle. Can you believe this? Im wondering how much money did they pay for that disaster.

    This movie looks horrible. Film of 2013'll probably be Spike's Oldboy remake. Evil Dead's looking pretty cool too. But fuck Spielberg for his degrading, dickless, piece of shit Lincoln. He obviously has little respect for Blacks, else he would make films like Django, not this garbage and Amistad. Show niggas like you did Jews in Munich and I might show you some love.

    Jay Z copies off the RZA way too much - clothing line, publishing books, scoring. - and in no ways am I a Jay Z "hater". I respect him hardcore. But damn is he on RZA's dick.

      Lots of rappers have clothing lines, quite a few of them have published books and scored movies. Jay-Z and RZA just happen to have done all three.
