Jay-Z put on his "finest hour" performing a few weeks ago when he put on an eight-show run to open the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. On New Years Eve, he put on another show with Coldplay to bring in 2013.
But that's not all Jay has been working on. He's also composing the score for The Great Gatsby. The Atlantic describes the similarities between the two Jay's, and producer/filmmaker The Bullitts described how the process is going via Twitter.
Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!— THE BULLITTS (@TheBullitts) December 30, 2012
