It’s no secret that Jay-Z is executive producing the soundtrack of The Great Gatsby, which includes features from artists like Beyonce, Emeli Sande, Lana Del Rey, Andre 3k and more — but how did he get that gig?
Leonardo DiCaprio is taking the credit for the introduction.
“I can’t say me specifically but I think I suggested [Jay-Z] to Baz,” Leo told E! Online. “I made the introduction, ’cause I know Baz [in] his great search to create this spectacle that is a Baz Luhrmann movie wanted to, in a sense, modernise the music in a lot of ways.”
He further explains why he suggested Mr. Carter.
“Jazz was kind of the equivalent of hip-hop in that era. So I suggested Jay-Z, and then they started working together and had a great collaboration and worked on the movie tirelessly.”
Smart man. The Great Gatsby soundtrack is out on May 6. Watch below for Jay talking about being in the studio with the director of The Great Gatsby and Kanye West.Readmore
