Writing songs is one thing, writing songs for film is quite another. The Hollywood Reporter asked Jamie Foxx to explain the genesis for the track featured in Django Unchained.
“Rick Ross came on the Django set. I said, ‘Rick, I’m not a rapper, don’t grade me. But you should do a song, ‘100 Black Coffins.’ Gimme an hour to write lyrics: ‘I need 100 black coffins for 100 bad men/100 black graves I can lay their ass in.’ ” said Jamie Foxx.
