Rapper Jay-Z is creating the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby, according to The Bullitts star Jeymes Samuel.
The 99 Problems star has been making music for the highly-anticipated 2013 movie, which features Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, Samuel writes, "Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming CLASSIC The Great Gatsby. It is too DOPE (good) for words!"
Fisher has previously revealed that Luhrmann blasted the musician's rap tracks onto the set of the film to boost his cast's energy during shooting, stating, "On my first day he had Jay-Z pumped up full and we did the entire scene with Jay-Z in our ear on full blast while acting, and it was just so liberating."
