RZA's The Man With The Iron Fists Soundtrack Tracklist


Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With The Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director, co-writer and leading man, RZA—alongside an exciting international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu—tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-takes-all battle for a fortune in gold. The film arrives on November 2, 2012.

I saw the trailer for this a little while back and frankly, it looks epic. Normally projects like this can be pretty shoddy, but RZA’s clearly surrounded himself with the right people and properly committed to this, and the sheer scale of the names involved in both the film and the soundtrack suggests he’ll pull this off with considerable success. The tracklist features a fantastic roster, including Kanye West, Pusha T and of course the Wu-Tang Clan; click below for the full list, where you can also grab a free download from the OST.

Reks-Cigarettes ft. Lil Fame [Video]

From my favourite album of the year Reks drops us some new visuals for the poignant Cigarettes with M.O.P. stalwart Lil Fame.

Reks and Fame trade verses tackling their addiction to those cancer sticks over Lil Fame’s smooth, delicate board work. The video itself captures that underground struggle we so frequently associate with Reks and helps add a little depth and understanding of the track’s subject matter.

If you keep your eyes peeled too, you’ll notice Reks loses his beard for one of the video scenes. Cop the excellent Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme right now.

Reks’ beard > What you’re listening to now.
