The-Dream Speaks On Jay-Z’s Grammy Jab

On Sunday night during the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, Jay-Z took the stage with The-Dream and Frank Ocean to accept the award for Best Rap Song/Collaboration for “No Church In The Wild.” During his acceptance speech, Jay took some time out to take a light jab at Terius’ attire (“I’d like to thank the swap meet for his hat.”) The internet, being the internet erupted and started imaginary “beef” as usual. Calling into the Qdeezy Show on Hot107.9 in Philly, The-Dream assured it was all pleasant and games and that the two crack similar jokes all the time. Shouts to hhnm on the heads up.

Now, can we get passed this and start getting ready for The-Dream’s next single “Slow It Down” and upcoming album, Fourplay.

Jay-Z To Score The Great Gatsby

A few weeks ago (I believe it was during the trailers for Life Of Pi) I saw the trailer for the 2013 adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, and The Throne’s “No Church For The Wild” played throughout. It turns out that Jay, alongside The Bullits, will actually score the film.

Jay-Z is confirmed to compose the score to The Great Gatsby, alongside The Bullitts. Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts took to Twitter [on] December 30th to share the news.

“Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!” Samuel said. – Billboard

The film itself debuts May 10th.
