The promotional video for "Django Unchained" features James Brown and Tupac.

On the eve of the Academy Awards, a new video has been released for "Django Unchained" -- take a look above. The video shows footage from Quentin Tarantino's "Django," set to the song "Unchained," a mashup of James Brown's "The Payback" and Tupac's "Untouchable."

"Unchained" was mixed by Claudio Cueni, an audio engineer who worked with Tupac.

Brown's "The Payback" is the title-track off the singer's 1973 album. The music from the album was intended for use as the soundtrack for "Hell Up in Harlem," a '70s blaxploitation film. "Untouchable" was released in 2006, ten years after Tupac's death. The song was featured on Tupac's posthumous album, "Pac's Life."

"Django Unchained" is up for five Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Editing, and Best Original Screenplay.
