Jay Z is confirmed to be scoring "The Great Gatsby", a retelling of the classic novel and directed by famed director Baz Luhrmann.

In the latest trailer, they used a sample of Jay Z's music but it is now much more than that.

It was rumored last year that Lady Gaga and Prince were going to be making songs for "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack but those reports were false.-DocFB
