Jay-Z’s Hobby: Reinventing Classics

stereotude :    Jay-Z is producing and performing music for The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack. The artist is collaborating with composer Craig Armstrong for the endeavor, which will feature original Hov-spun, F. Scott Fitzgerald-inspired material.

In a press release, the rap mogul told Reuters: “As soon as I spoke with Baz [Luhrmann] and Leonardo [DiCaprio], I knew this was the right project. The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion.”
