10 Mainstream Movie Trailers Featuring Rap Songs

Lately we’ve been noticing a trend of hip-hop music being featured in trailers for movies that aren’t specifically targeting the hip-hop audience. Kanye West’s “Power” seems to be the movie trailer song du jour, as it was featured in the trailer for Oscar-nominated The Social Network late last year, and now in Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro’s Limitless, which opens in theaters tomorrow (March 18). XXL takes a look at 10 mainstream movie trailers featuring rap songs.— Mike Naclerio
