Jay-Z sampled music from the original 1970 Annie musical for "Hard Knock Life," one of his most iconic hits ever. Now it's time for an updated version of the story, and who better than Hov to handle the music? He'll be writing new songs for the score of the new film version of the musical, and Roc Nation signee Willow Smith will be taking on the lead role. Her father, Will Smith, will be directing. With all these big names involved, this Annie 2.0 should be a huge hit.
