It seems like The Throne is taking over more and more film soundtracks. You’ve heard Jay-Z’s executive produced soundtrack for “The Great Gatsby”, now Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” is featured on the trailer for “The Wolf of Wall Street”. The Martin Scorsese film, based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort, will be starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, and Rob Reiner. It would be dope to hear new music produced by Kanye for the film, maybe that’s wishful thinking though.
Its great to see how influential Hip-Hop has become in the movie industry. The marketability of Hip-Hop is playing a big role in the roll-out for movies that are not about music but major production dramas. I see this as a positive respect given to the culture, what do you think? Comment below.
