Jay Z - Great Gatsby Movie to be Scored By Hip Hop's 'CEO' Jay Z

The self-proclaimed CEO of Hip Hop, Jay Z, will be turning his attention to scoring the movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, The Great Gatsby

He'll be working with Jeymes Samuel - AKA The Bullitts, the producer, singer, songwriter and filmmaker - who revealed the news via his Twitter page. "Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!" he posted. Isla Fisher - who will play Myrtle Wilson in the film, has been talking about working alongside the infamous rapper. "On my first day he had Jay-Z pumped up full, and we did the entire scene with ... Jay-Z in our ear on full blast while acting," Fisher told MTV News. "It was just so liberating. He really understands actors and how self-conscious we feel at times, and how exposed we are and how we never know where anything lands. Just the complexity of being vulnerable every minute when you're acting and he just makes you feel so safe."

Jay Z's music is already featured within the realms of Gatsby, with his and Kanye's 'No Church in the Wild' appearing in the trailer for the movie. With a May release, we can't talk about Gatsby in the same breath as the Oscars, but in 2014? Watch this (long) space.
