Hear James Brown, Tupac mashup from 'Django Unchained'
Posted December 11, 2012
Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx, rides into theaters Christmas Day, but music fans can get an early present with the fiery James Brown/Tupac Shakur mashup at Rollingstone.com.
The website is premiering the film's soundtrack, which is highlighted by the funk-fueled The Payback/Untouchable. Tupac engineer Claudio Cueni merges Brown's 1973 revenge-themed No. 1 R&B hit - a sample favorite of hip-hop producers - with Tupac's 2006 posthumous hit from Pac's Life and laces it with dialogue and gunfire from the film.
The Payback is the title track of a soul-chart-topping double album Brown recorded for the blaxploitation film Hell Up in Harlem, but it was rejected by the movie studio.
