Jay-Z Is Doing The Score For ‘The Great Gatsby’, Apparently

If you’ve seen the trailer for The Great Gatsby that’s been playing in theaters for months, you know that it’s set to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s No Church in the Wild, so the news that Jay is apparently scoring the movie might not come as a huge surprise, but it still feels somewhat surprising nonetheless.

Now, no official word has come from “Hova” or Gatsby’s producers, mind you, but Jay-Z collaborator Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts tweeted last night that the two were hard at work on the score for the film — the soundtrack for which is reported to include new music from Prince and Lady Gaga.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and predict an Oscar nomination for Jay-Z for his work here. This just seems like a perfect fit for him. Refer back to the aforementioned trailer for reference…
