Jay-Z is about to add another accomplishment to his ever-expanding list of accomplishments!

The rapper will score Baz Luhrmann's retelling of the classic novel, The Great Gatsby.

We'd been wondering ever since we heard Jay's voice on the film's trailer, but it has now been confirmed by collaborator Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts

Jeymes tweeted:

And we'd expect no less than "dope" from Jay!

If you've seen Baz's other hits like Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge then you know his ability to mesh period stories with modern soundtracks, so Jay's music should fit right in!!!

We're counting down the days until May 10 when The Great Gatsby finally hits theaters!!

    the original Gatsby was perfect. won't be watching all these re-make, jay-z crap. hollywood has BIG tax breaks in this fiscal cliff bill. little pay back to hollywood from the pos in the Wh.

    I'm sure F. Scott Fitzgerald is so thrilled! "Jay-Z and myself" is illiterate, so I can only imagine what they've done to this classic!

    Is this a musical? I sure hope not because I cannot stand most musicals. Last one I saw was Moulin Rouge, not too bad, but Evita was one song over and over again with variations!

    this is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    .
    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don’t associate with non Asians that much, are very untalkative, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don’t like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.

    Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely wild as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

    YOU HAVE TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!!!!
    THE WORLD HAS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!!!

    This movie sounds like a snorefest. The book sucked and the movie version with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow blew.

    I will definitely NOT be going to see this film if the score is hip hop or rap or anything popish. I saw the trailer for this in the theatre last week and everyone was appaled at the music they chose to use for it - a classic 1920s story with a heavy rock/rap beat. Can anyone say INAPPROPRIATE???

    I wonder what he'll come up with.

    ugh ew ew yuck ugh noooo. there is no way in hell im gona go c this now. fitzgerald must be rolling over in his grave right now absofrickenlutely. with the impeccable music in moulin rouge i would think the moulin rouge director would have more common sense than this. this is truly a tragedy n quite simply despicable. i hope that they can still change this terrible blasphemy nd that they will do so asap. i dont think ive ever been more indignated in my life. i mean wasnt it enough that they decided to make this movie in 3d sheesh.



  15. 15

    also agreed w secretstar haha



  16. 16

    NI99ers should not be allowed near an american classic.

    I hope he gets shot.



  20. 20

    ugh. I did want to see the movie. Not so sure now.

    Mesh???? You mean Mess. Like I've always said, Baz Luhrmann turns everything into a 3 Ring Circus. Like everything else he's ever done, this latest (delayed) effort will be go down as an over-priced, waste of talent, miscast gaudy piece of shit with an over-the-top, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink BIG finale. Mark my words.
