Jay-Z Debuts ‘100$ Bill’ From ‘The Great Gatsby’ Soundtrack

The Great Gatsby Soundtrack

Cash rules everything around Jay-Z on his sterling new song ‘100$ Bill,’ featured on ‘The Great Gatsby’ soundtrack. Hov raps get-money rhymes over a chaotic instrumental with a haunting chorus and dialogue from the movie.

On the track, Jay-Z is on the hunt for the almighty dollar by any means necessary. The Throne rapper compares and contrasts business deals in the boardroom with street hustlers juggling white packs on the Brooklyn streets. For him, it’s all relative in the world we live in.

“Carter, the new Kennedy / No ordinary Joe, you’ll remember me,” he raps. “You’re welcome / New Malcolm / Of the talcum / By any means / AK looking at the window screen.”

Jay-Z is the executive producer of ‘The Great Gatsby’ soundtrack, which arrives in stores on May 7. The collection boasts songs from Beyonce and Andre 3000 (‘Back to Black‘), Emeli Sande (‘Crazy in Love‘), and many others.

“It’s not the typical soundtrack, or a standalone piece. The songs are pretty much in the film, so it goes hand in hand with each other,” Jay-Z tells about the soundtrack. “It had to fit pretty snug, it wasn’t an afterthought.”
