Listen To A James Brown/Tupac Mash-Up From Django Unchained Soundtrack
Why are we getting the Django Unchained soundtrack one song at a time? Is this the musical equivalent of the teaser trailer leading up to the bigger trailer, which in turn leads up to the actual movie?
Earlier, in preparation for Quentin Tarantinoís homage to spaghetti westerns, The Weinstein Company released the Rick Ross song ď100 Black CoffinsĒ from the movieís official soundtrack. Next, RollingStone.com has an early listen to a James Brown/2Pac mash up ďUnchained (The Payback/Untouchable)Ē which also will be featured on the movie's CD. Itís a brilliant hip-hop tune. Listen to it right here:
Like a true cinematic deejay, Tarantino (and his musical collaborators) blend the two dissimilar tracks together to create a wholly original song that also weaves in memorable quotes from the Django Unchained screenplay. This particular track was mixed by Tupacís former engineer, Claudio Cueni. It ends with a quote I donít remember from the movie, though thereís a LOT of dialogue in Django (it is a Tarantino film, after all) and itís possible I just missed it.
The Django Unchained soundtrack will be in stores in a little less than a week. It reaches shelves on Dec. 18, with the movie following up on Dec. 25. As you likely know, it stars Jamie Foxx as a free slave who joins forces with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to try and rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from the clutches of a vicious plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). Itís everything QT fans want. Pump up this track and enjoy.
