Late music icons James Brown and Tupac Shakur have teamed up from beyond the grave for a mash-up anthem which will appear on the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's new movie Django Unchained.

The moviemaker has worked with label bosses at Loma Vista Recordings to create the music for the gritty slavery western - and he'll actually collaborate with artists on the soundtrack for the first time.

The film will feature new music from the movie's lead Jamie Foxx, as well as Rick Ross, John Legend and revered composer Ennio Morricone and there will be one very special track featuring Brown and Tupac, titled Unchained (The Payback/Untouchable).

Tupac has already created a stir from beyond the grave this year (12) - he appeared as a hologram during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's headlining set at the Coachella festival in California in April.
