Jay-Z, the Bullitts to score 'The Great Gatsby'
By Erika Ramirez, N.Y.,  Billboard

Jay-Z is confirmed to compose the score to "The Great Gatsby," alongside the Bullitts. Jeymes Samuel of the Bullitts took to Twitter on Sunday to share the news: "Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!"

Bing: Watch the 'Great Gatsby' trailer

Rumors of Jay-Z's participation with the film started swirling when the first trailer debuted online in May. Director Baz Luhrmann chose Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Watch the Throne" track "No Church in the Wild" as the music for the film's trailer. The film's soundtrack may include songs from Prince and Lady Gaga, according to Collider. The soundtrack's tracklist has yet to be confirmed. "The Great Gatsby" opens on May 10.

Jay-Z took on a similar role earlier this year when curating the soundtrack to "NBA 2K13." As executive producer, he brought along a number of artists for the soundtrack, including Phoenix, Dirty Projectors, Daft Punk, Justice, Nas, Kanye West and more.

Jay-Z is the one who told Baz to use the Jack White version of  "Love is Blindness. Plus he's had more number one albums than Elvis and the Rolling stones in a day when selling records is hard. You mad bro?

Is it going to be like "rap music?"    What an insult to F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Wonder what "drug induced moron" decided on this.    This guy is a rapper....and not a good one at that.

From the same clown that put out that "New York" mess a few years back.  Now he's in charge of turning a classic into some sort of R & B / Hip-hop / rap disaster.
