Jay-Z is arguably one of the coolest mofo’s on the planet and he has further proven this point by swagging out “The Great Gatsby” soundtrack.

HipHollywood‘s friends over at EPK.tv chatted with the Brooklyn-born rapper who talked about being the executive producer for the soundtrack and collaborating with the film’s director, Baz Lurhmann and star, jayz.

“I was working on a song called ‘No Church In The Wild’, and I was working on it while they were in the room. And then we started playing some music and just talked about collaborating because, you know, it was a collaboration with Kanye at the time, and we just talked about the act and the art of collaborating and I guess that was the seed of the ideas.”

Check out the full interview below.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
