Jay-Z is partnering with film director, Baz Luhrmann to executive produce and record music for the upcoming film, The Great Gatsby.
According to Reuters, Jay will blend contemporary music with hip hop for its soundtrack. The film based off F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel starring Leonardo DiCaprio hits theaters May 10. Says Jay:
“As soon as I spoke with Baz and Leonardo, I knew this was the right project. The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one`s introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion. It`s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to `Moulin Rouge` made it a masterpiece, and `Romeo + Juliet`s` score wasn`t just in the background; the music became a character. This film`s vision and direction has all the makings of an epic experience.”

What were they saying? Here’s throwback footage of Jay-Z and former mentor Jaz-O rapping to EPMD’s classic. This looks like something that might’ve aired on BCAT back in the day, but it’s just another testament to how far Hov has come. Respect the originators.
