New music from the forthcoming soundtrack to RZA’s upcoming film, The Man With The Iron Fists, seems to be dropping almost daily (a snippet of Kanye West’s contribution, “White Dress,” appeared just last night), and we’re not complaining. The latest is the highly anticipated collaboration between Wu-Tang Clan’s Abbott and rockers the Black Keys, called “The Baddest Man Alive.”
Listeners should be anything but disappointed thanks to the bluesy guitar riff and aggressive drums that combine for a numbing groove. Lines like, “Spit in a crocodile’s face, have a menage trois with two female apes,” from the Rzarector, or Bobby Digital, also help the song’s cause. The tune is the opening track on the soundtrack, which is in stores October 23rd via RZA’s Stone Temple Records. The film itself, which stars Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, among others, is in theaters November 2nd.
Listen to “The Baddest Man Alive” below.
