The Godfather of Soul James Brown and 2Pac are on the "Django Unchained" Movie soundtrack with "Unchained (The Payback/Untouchable) a duet that Quentin Tarantino felt had to happen.

"Tupac Shakur's talent extended beyond music to acting and filmmaking. Tupac spoke many times of his admiration for Quentin Tarantino's work. In talking with Quentin about the Django soundtrack, I found out the admiration was mutual as Quentin is a big Tupac fan," said Loma Vista Recordings founder Tom Whalley. "Tupac Shakur and James Brown both have enduring legacies. To have a mix of these two great artists in a Quentin Tarantino film and on the soundtrack is an incredible combination of creativity and makes perfect sense."-Tarantino

The song was mixed by Claudio Cueni, 2Pac's engineer.

The soundtrack for "Django Unchained" is due December 18th. The movie will be in theaters Christmas Day.-DocFB

John Legend Releases Song From “Django Unchained” Soundtrack “Who Did That To You”

John Legend has released "Who Did That To You" from the "Django Unchained" Soundtrack.

Legend took the task of recording a song for a Quentin Tarantino film very seriously.

"Quentin Tarantino's movies have such a specific sound to them where the music plays such an important role. When I first learned that Quentin was making Django Unchained, a film set in the South two years before the Civil War, I felt a strong connection to the story, and I knew that I wanted to write a song for it, one that would give voice to this character Django who was willing to stand up and fight for his lover's honor. The scene where the song plays is such a powerful moment in the film, a moment of redemption, and we wrote a triumphant and heroic song that underscores Django's mission."

"Django Unchained" lands in theaters on Christmas Day.

I am digging this song. It is nice to hear Legend singing a song like this. Aside from "Green Light" most of his mellow songs get a major push. Here is hoping this song finds an audience that is worthy and gives it a chance.-DocFB
