(News) Jay Z Gets Beyonce, Andre 3000 & More For “Great Gatsby” Soundtrack

great-gatsby-poster

Jay-Z assembles an all-star cast for the soundtrack to The Great Gatsby. The Roc Nation mogul, who serves as executive producer of the film and soundtrack, has worked closely with writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann on the eclectic project over the past two years, blending the Jazz Age sensibility of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel with hip-hop and traditional jazz.

The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence, and illusion,” said Jay-Z. “It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to Moulin Rouge! made it a masterpiece, and Romeo + Juliet’s score wasn’t just in the background; the music became a character. This film’s vision and direction has all the makings of an epic experience.”

Jay-Z’s own “No Church in the Wild” is included in the film, along with a new song entitled “100$ Bill.” The first single will be the haunting “Young and Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey.

The diverse lineup also includes original music from Fergie, Q Tip, Florence + The Machine, and will.i.am. Beyoncé and André 3000 duet on a cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black,” Emeli Sandé remakes Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” and Jack White reinterprets U2′s “Love Is Blindness.”

The soundtrack arrives on May 7, while the movie hits theaters on May 10. See the tracklisting and hear a clip of “Back to Black” in the trailer below.

(News) J.Cole Thought Jay-Z Was Part of Illuminati

Hip hop fans have been obsessed with Illuminati rumors for the past few years now. Roc Nation rapper J. Cole admitted in a recent interview that he was one of those people convinced every upper-echelon rapper was a part of some evil secret society prior to joining Jay-Z’s label.

“You know, it’s crazy. Before I got a deal and became apart of the industry, I was one of those people,” Cole told The Smoking Section. “Like, I wasn’t on it all the time, but I’m a conspiracy theorist. Like, I believed those videos. So there were times where I’d look at a video that’s like, ‘Jay-Z, a member of The Illuminati!’ and I would be like, ‘Ohhhh! Like, yoooo! How is…’ and then you meet him, and you see how things work and you’re like, ‘Nah, man. That’s bogus.’ That’s somebody who’s so far away from the truth and what’s actually happening, just creating something. They’re probably high. But nah, it’s not true.”

And I was like: no, it’s a good thing!” He didn’t have Obama growing up, only the local hustler. “No one came to our Continue reading
