Jay-Z Co-Produces And Flying Lotus Scores New Film

    With the recent release of Tom Cruise’s Oblivion and the upcoming release of Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the classic novel, The Great Gatsby, more artists like Jay-Z and M83’s leadman Anthony Gonzalez are dabbling into the process of scoring film soundtracks. Despite his extensive association with the highly anticipated film, The Great Gatsby, Jay-Z has also found himself co-executively producing a small indie film, An Oversimplification of Her Beauty.

    The animated/ live action film is directed by Terence Nance, “which documents the relationship between Terence and a young woman that vacillates between platonic and romantic.” The film also features original music from the cerebral mastermind, Flying Lotus, who has recently ventured into television musical production with the humorous toon show, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” and the psychedelic show, “Adventure Time,” series. The film will be released in select theaters this weekend and preview the trailer below.
