After weeks of anticipation, leaks, speculation and disappointment, The Great Gatsby soundtrack is finally available for listening in its entirety.
One of the most exciting tracks on the album comes from executive producer Jay-Z–a track that has been kept from internet waves until now. Titled "100$ Bill," it features an intro from the film's star, Leonardo DiCaprio, and skillfully sampled rag-time recordings.
All in all, the wait was worth it. Hearing all of the tracks in proper order make for a sensational listening experience. It's as climactic and beautiful as the story it orchestrates.
