As we move closer and closer to the release dates of  Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, more singles from the star-studded soundtrack emerge from the crevices of the internet. Arguably more hyped than Beyoncé and André 3000’s rendition of Amy Weinhouse‘s “Back to Black,” Jay-Z’s contribution titled “$100 Bill” leaked as well. Similar to Watch the Throne‘s “No Church in the Wild,” Mr. Carter brings back luxury rap to express both the luxurious and corrupting power of the Benjamins. You can now stream the entire album thanks to NPR. Support by preordering the soundtrack via iTunes. Lyrics and explanation via RapGenius.
