At this point RZA could make whatever kind of movie he wants, because The Man with the Iron Fists’ soundtrack is going to be good enough to carry anything. We’ve already heard Kanye West’s “White Dress,” Wu-Tang Clan’s “Six Directions of Boxing,” Ghostface Killah, M.O.P. and Pharoahe Monch’s “Black Out” and Pusha T and Raekwon’s “Tick Tock,” and now we get the Black Keys’ collaboration with RZA himself.
“The Baddest Man Alive” is everything it should be, a Keys-style blues-rock track with RZA’s spaghetti western sensibilities, not to mention his flow. Check that out below, pick up the soundtrack October 23 via Soul Temple/STX/Red and catch The Man with the Iron Fists in theaters starting November 2.
