Jay-Z's adding some swag to West Egg. Director Baz Luhrmann has recruited the rapper to work with music producer the Bullitts on the score for his upcoming adaption of The Great Gatsby. Winter TV Preview: Must-see new shows "Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!" the Bullitts tweeted. Jay's new role in the anticipated feature isn't too much of a surprise. Luhrmann already used "No Church in the Wild," the rapper's Watch the Throne collaboration with Kanye West in two of the trailers. The director also played some of the rapper's music during rehearsals. Photos: Kim Kardashian's nude photo shoots The Great Gatsby stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan in the classic tale of hollow wealth and the decline of the American Dream. Check out some of Jay's music in the trailer below.
