Stream The Soundtrack To RZA's "The Man With The Iron Fists"

This is the closest we'll be getting to a new Wu-Tang album for a while.

Yesterday, the New York Times posted a really long quote from RZA where he discussed the possibility of a Wu-Tang reunion. Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), their debut album, is approaching its twentieth anniversary, and obviously there's a hugacious demand for the band to get back together, so to speak. We're not going to repost the quote because it's long as shit, but basically, The RZA said that if the Clan were to get back together, they'd need to yield him the same level of autonomy they gave him when the group first started and took over the world. He then compared Wu-Tang to The Beatles, which is dumb but whatever.

Meanwhile, the RZA is directing a movie (The Man With The Iron Fists), and he called in every single favor anyone has ever owed him for the soundtrack. We're about halfway through it, and it's crazy good. Until that Wu-Tang reunion happens, this is going to be about as close as we get to a new Wu-Tang album, and holy shit this album rules. The RZA managed to get Kanye West to rap like old Kanye West, had the brilliant idea to put Raekwon and Danny Brown on the same track, and also got Ol' Dirty Bastard's kid to kick a verse. Stream it below, and prepare your jaw to drap from the cavalclade of widescreen rap opulence.
