‘The Great Gatsby’ Confirms Composers Jay-Z and Jeymes Samuel

The Bullitts band founder Jeymes Samuel has confirmed his involvement in scoring The Great Gatsby adaptation. He is working alongside Jay-Z in creating new music for Baz Luhrmann's latest film. Take a look at the message Samuel sent out to his Twitter followers.

It isn't known how extensive their involvement in crafting this score will be, since Craig Armstrong (The Incredible Hulk, Ray) is currently credited as the composer. Perhaps Jay-Z and Jeymes Samuel are working on new original songs for the soundtrack, although that has not been confirmed. Jay-Z and Kanye West's song "Church in the Wild" was featured in the first trailer that debuted back in May.

The Great Gatsby was released May 10th, 2013.

      Really? 10 Thumbs down? Is it because of Jay-Z? 10 f*cking thumbs down all because a genius is composing a film and he is doing what he is best at, yes that seems reasonable. Honestly people, just because it's not James Newton Howard or Hans Zimmer doesn't mean that it wont be good. So I guess you see this man as some ordinary hip hopper with some lousy lyrics and no comprehension of the way of making music, which basicly makes you an imbecile, sorry. This man is a f*cking genius and you should at least give it a go before judging it.

            Weird choice. I don't have the best feeling about this. We'll see how it turns out though.

                If there's one thing I know I'll hate about this film based on the trailer, it the choice in music.

                  Thanks for the warning, all the more reason to avoid Baz Luhrmann's raping of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic at all costs.
