Jay-Z To Write Songs For Willow Smith-Starring 'Annie'

13 years after he sampled "It's the Hard Knock Life" for Vol. 2...'s "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)," Jay-Z is preparing to set up an OST for a remake of Annie. As NME reports, the project will star 11-year-old Willow Smith -- she of "Whip My Hair" fame -- and will be produced by her dad, Will, and written by British actress Emma Thompson. Willow is signed to Mr. Carter's Roc Nation; her debut album, Knees and Elbows, is due later this year.
On a semi-related note, the older Smith's Men in Black III shows up tomorrow, and you should read this about it.
