The official soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino‘s next film Django Unchained was recently unveiled, and after the James Brown-2Pac mash-up, the one song everyone had circled was Rick Ross‘ “100 Black Coffins.” We got a taste of it in the latest theatrical trailer, but now the full song is available for streaming.
It starts off with dialogue from Jamie Foxx, who is in the film and produced this track. This marks the first time Tarantino has commissioned original music for his films, and if this cut is any indication, he might want to consider doing it for his next film, too. The ominous track somehow manages to meld the director’s classic Western sensibilities (rusty guitars, whistles, church bells) with Rozay’s pounding thumps and snares without sounding completely ridiculous. In fact, it sounds pretty good! Hear it below.
