2pac and James Brown Get Unchained

Another month and another Tarentino movie with a Hip Hop flavored single off the soundtrack. First it was The Man with the Iron Fists, now it's Django Unchained, which is scheduled for a Christmas day release. Strictly based on cast, Django has a slight edge with Leo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Samuel L Jackson, Joseph Gordon Levitt > Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu (Iron Fists).

Looking at the tracklist for the soundtrack, it's an interesting mix of Hip Hop and situated movie songs. It's not everyday you see a James Brown/2pac mash up that's put together by 2pac's former engineer Claudio Cueni. The track samples Pac's track Untouchable and James's Brown's song The Payback. Mixed together it's about as random as you'd expect, but perfectly fitting for a Tarentino flick. Makes you wonder what it would have been like had they collaborated in their prime...#RIP
