Both Jay Gatsby and Jay-Z  know that you can’t knock the hustle, so it makes sense that the two will be scheming together this spring.

In a somewhat (though not totally) unexpected bit of news, producer the Bullitts (né Jeymes Samuel, brother of Seal) tweeted that he and Jay-Z are hard at work on scoring Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming adaptation of the The Great Gastby.

“Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!” read the tweet, which added yet another dash of intrigue to the elusive Gatsby remake. The film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby himself, is set for a May release after more than a year of assorted trailers and promotion.

The news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, however, as Jay-Z’s Kanye West-assisted single “No Church in the Wild” soundtracked one of the movie’s early trailers, which you can watch below:
