Jay-Z Great Gatsby
Los Angeles – Jay-Z isn't just lending a few of his songs to the soundtrack of the upcoming film The Great Gatsby, he's apparently composing the entire original score.

The rapper is, apparently, hard at work to accomplish the task with another artist, who goes by the name The Bullitts.

The latter broke the news on Twitter this week.

"Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC 'The Great Gatsby,'" Bullitts exclaimed. "It is too DOPE for words! (sic)"

The Great Gatsby – an adaptation of the classic F Scott Fitzgerald novel – starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, and directed by Baz Luhrmann, hits US theatres on 10 May.

Warner Bros and Jay-Z's rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
