Jay-Z's Involved With The Score For 'The Great Gatsby'!


Y'all remember 'The Great Gatsby' as part of the Literature curriculum in Junior High? (Yeah, I barely remember it too.--lol) The novel's a literary staple. And now our King of Hip Hop (and probably my one, true love), Jay-Z, has been named as inspiration for the movie's score!!! And has been recruited to contribute to the final score.

From Huffington Post:

Hov is reportedly the latest star to attach his name to the upcoming film adaptation of "The Great Gatsby." According to Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts, he and Jay-Z will be writing the score for "Gatsby."
The first clue of Jay-Z's involvement with "The Great Gatsby" was shown in the film's trailer. The opulent lifestyle of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) was set to the pumping beat of Jay-Z and Kanye West's "No Church In The Wild" -- take a look in the video above.
Cast members also leaked in April that director Baz Luhrmann played Jay-Z music on the set of "The Great Gatsby." "On my first day he had Jay-Z pumped up full, and we did the entire scene with, you know, Jay-Z in our ear on full blast while acting, and it was just so liberating," Isla Fischer told MTV.

I just loved watching Jay's transitions and success!  All of y'all that have been down with Jay since the early/mid 90's know what I'm talking about.
