    I don’t know, but there were no better choices of composers?

    listened to a sample of his work from the fox series and his collaborations with rapper Childish Gambino….impressive to say the least.

    I’m so anxious to see this movie. When I sa2 the trailer it was thrilling excepr for when the rap music started. I trust the composer wants the score to be part of history and we know Rap is oart of the new age but I’m really hoping that I won’t be sitting and struggling to get thru the rap. Classics never die so why why why did Rap have to be included ?? signed, anxiously dreading!

    I hhope the music score is good. I do alot of jogging and one of my playlist is from the Rocky movies. The training and music has always carries the movie and of course the dramatic last fight scene. Right, don’t mess with the Rocky music
