RZA has teamed up with the Black Keys again in a new track for the Wu-Tang leader's directorial film debut, The Man With the Iron Fists. (They previously paired up on "Dollars and Sense" from the Akron rockers' collaborative record Blakroc.) "The Baddest Man Alive" finds RZA spitting pure hubris – "I snatch food from the mouth of a tiger/ Take a gasoline bath then I walk through fire" – over a scuzzy blues riff and a drumbeat that grooves along in staggered snare hits.
The soundtrack for The Man With the Iron Fists hits shelves on October 23rd, and the film lands in theaters on November 2nd. You can check out the trailer here.
