Tupac & James Brown Are “Unchained”: Hear The Immortal ‘Django Unchained’ Mash-Up

Django Unchained is the first Quentin Tarantino film for which the director has commissioned original music. The first new track we heard from the comp was Rick Ross“100 Black Coffins,” and now we’re getting the theme song “Unchained,” which continues 2Pac‘s 2012 resurrection. The song comprises Shakur’s “Untouchable” mashed up with James Brown‘s “The Payback.”

The result is like a more overblown “Otis,” which memorably sampled Otis Redding‘s soulful yelp. While we would’ve rather heard the iconic Brown song crossed with classic Pac, it’s still exciting to hear the two passionate performers on the same song. Listen after the jump.
