SOURCE: The Urban Buzz:Jay-Z will executive produce and contribute original content and music to the highly anticipated soundtrack for the remake of the classic Hollywood film, The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion. It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. Jay-Z is working alongside accomplished composer Craig Armstrong to capture, translate and contrast the feelings of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel of 1920’s America with that of today’s turbulent times, using hip-hop and jazz, to bring two distinct American moments to simultaneous life. The Great Gatsby Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released on Interscope Records; the film is set to hit theaters in May.
