Quentin Tarantino's upcoming western drama, "Django Unchained," has some major names attached to it. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Foxx, and Kerry Washington, among others, the film was just tied to two more big names: Frank Ocean and Rick Ross reportedly wrote songs for the movie's soundtrack.

"As we make our way back from Astoria, Ocean tells me that he's got at least five projects in the works, among them a song he wrote for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained; songs he's working on for Alicia Keys and Beyoncé; songs for his own third album; and a European tour, which he says he wants to model on Pink Floyd's The Wall tour," Amy Wallace writes in her profile of the artist.

Vulture went on to report that Ross penned a song as well. "I ran into Rick Ross [and] I said, 'Rick, you should come by the set because I know Quentin doesn’t do original stuff, but it wouldn’t hurt for you to come and just feel it because Django is hip hop. This is a different thing,'" Foxx said in an interview with About. "So Rick Ross shows up, huge fan of Quentin and I said, 'Rick, if you’re going to write a song, I think you should say these words: I need 100 black coffins for 100 bad men, dig 100 black graves so I can lay they ass in. 100 black coffins.' So that would be my contribution. Now what he does with it, I don't know. But if he does what I think, it’s going be, it’ll be great."

Ocean rose to fame this year, thanks to a successful album and an openness with his personal life that made headlines. Ocean penned letters on his blog about his first love, who was a man -- a confession that made waves in the hip-hop community. He has started to achieve mainstream success, shown recently when his tracks were featured on the Nov. 12 episode of "Gossip Girl."

"Django Unchained" is due out Dec. 25.
