    This is my creation of the music of the movie “Black Mass”. Starring Johnny Depp as a legendary Boston crime lord Whitey Bulger. I think Tom Holkenborg (Junkie XL) scoring the music of the movie and it was basically successful of this score like legendary film composers Randy Newman and Howard Shore. I think Hans Zimmer is awesome. So, Johnny Depp is a veteran actor and he portrayed the legendary Boston crime lord Whitey Bulger.

    Junkie XL is a genius.
