Jamie Foxx Produces New Rick Ross Track For "Django Unchained," Director Quentin Tarantino Thanks Artists
(AllHipHop News) Actor/producer Jamie Foxx, who is the star of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming movie "Django Unchained," has collaborated with Rick Ross and produced a new track for the rapper.
The track "100 Black Coffins" features Rick Ross and Jamie Foxx, who produced the song for the Miami rapper.
Also featured on the "Django Unchained" soundtrack will be singer John Legend and musical icons James Brown and Tupac, who appear together on the mashup track "Unchained (The Payback/Untouchable)."
The "Django Unchained" soundtrack marks the first time that Quentin Tarantino has partnered with artists to produce original music for use in a film and/or soundtrack.
"I want to thank all the artists who contributed original songs (a first for me) to the picture," Tarantino said in a statement. "Most of these contributions came out of the artists' own inspiration and their illustration of the film's soul is invaluable. In addition to the new original songs I am also using a lot of older recordings on the soundtrack - many of which came from my personal vinyl collection. Instead of having the record companies give me new digitally cleaned up versions of these recordings from the 60's and 70's, I wanted to use the vinyl I've been listening to for years - complete with all the pops and cracks. I even kept the sound of the needle being put down on the record. Basically because I wanted people's experience to be the same as mine when they hear this soundtrack for the first time."
Music from artists like Ennio Morricone, Jim Croce, Jerry Goldsmith featuring Pat Matheny, and others are featured on the "Django Unchained" soundtrack, which is due in stores on December 18.
The "Django Unchained" movie will premiere in theaters nationwide, on Christmas Day.
