Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED Film will be in theaters Christmas Day. Below, get a first listen to the new JAmes Brown and 2Pac song featured on the Soundtrack "Unchained (The Payback / Untouchable)" which is currently premiering at RollingStone.Com.

"Tupac Shakur's talent extended beyond music to acting and filmmaking. Tupac spoke many times of his admiration for Quentin Tarantino's work. In talking with Quentin about the Django soundtrack, I found out the admiration was mutual as Quentin is a big Tupac fan," said Loma Vista Recordings founder Tom Whalley.

"Tupac Shakur and JAmes Brown both have enduring legacies. To have a mix of these two great artists in a Quentin Tarantino film and on the soundtrack is an incredible combination of creativity and makes perfect sense."

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, the film stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South's most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...
