Earlier this month it was announced that Jay-Z would score Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby.  As noted by the Daily Beast, both J Hova and Jay Gatsy share  striking similarities, so the choice seems rather inspired.  Not convinced?  Take this “Jay-Z Lyric or Line From The Great Gatsby?” quiz and revel in the thematic overlap.

The Library appreciates the work of  Jay-Z and Fitzgerald alike, so come in and explore the impressive oeuvre of both artists!
