Jay-Z & The Bullitts Working On The Score For Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’
  |  @   |  

Many rumors have been making the rounds as to who might be working on the score and soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann‘s new take on F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic work, The Great Gatsby.

At the moment Craig Armstrong is listed as the man behind the film’s score, but now it appears that there will be more people working on it as well.

Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts took to the Twitter recently, saying:

Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!”

Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild” was been used in the trailers for the movie, so the news should come as no surprise. It’s also not unusual for recording artists to step away from their genres and into the realms of movie scores. People like Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead, Danny Elfman of Oingo Boingo, and RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan have all moved into film scores, for example.

What do you think of Jay-Z working on the score for The Great Gatsby?
