Does Jay Z make any music? I was under the impression that he had a guy who came up with the beats that he rapped over.

I'm thinking so too. And I was looking forward to it. One of the few books I have read.

I doubt it'll ruin the movie. I'm sure they didn't just hand him the keys without knowing what he could do.

I agree with that, but I'm a little worried. I do think if done right, it could be awesome

Saw this news the other day. I'm out. There's a way to bring contemporary music to stories, but Jay-Z is not a fit for this film.

The director's previous movies have featured contemporary music juxtaposed against historical settings in interesting ways, so I think he knows what he is doing. It is a risk, but I'm cautiously optimistic it will turn out well.

Probably would have been better if Kanye did it instead.

Jay-Z is far from the average rapper. I think it has a lot of potential.

if this makes you not want to see the film.

You really never wanted to see it in the first place.

Could be awesome and add a lot to the film, could tear it apart as well though

Not true. I waited years for a Green Hornet movie as a fan of the comic book. I refused to see it as soon as Seth Rogen was named Britt Reid. I really wanted to see a Green Hornet movie...but not that one.

Nice way of comparing apples and oranges in this situation.


Not to mention, expecting Seth Rogan to do a quality job in the Green Hornet is comical.

I swear to God I will leave the theatre if they play rap music during this movie.

Agreed. Both Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet worked out okay musically.
