Wu-Tang Clan mastermind RZA is preparing for his big screen debut as writer/director/actor in the upcoming Quinten Tarantino-produced kung-fu flick The Man with the Iron Fists. And as one would suspect, the soundtrack features an impressive list of hip-hop luminaries, including Kanye West, Pharoahe Monch, Pusha T and Wu-Tang members Ghostface Killah and Method Man.
It also features a new Wu-Tang track, “Six Directions of Boxing,” which was produced by Frank Dukes and features almost the entire Clan—U-God, Ghostface Killah, GZA, Masta Killa, Cappadonna, and Inspectah Deck. Check out the tune here, and after the jump watch an interview with RZA where he talks about the potential for a final Wu-Tang album to mark the group’s 20th anniversary next year.
Surprised this slipped by some of you CA.liens. Damn you Cali, you have failed us all on Prop 19. Props to Jerry Brown though. Sickness in three acts. Blu at his best. FlyLo at his sharpest. And Act III, bloody U-God on the hook. Love it. Dig the slipstream:
Now you can be part of the Wu-Tang Clan! Or at least be that fly on the wall when the Clan is around. Ever wanted to know what went down behind the scenes when RZA was booted out of the 8 Diagrams tour? Well, now is your chance. The Official Wu-Tang Saga is being heralded as the official look at the behind the scenes doings of possibly one of the greatest hip hop groups in history. I’m always a sucker for “behind the scenes” type of documentaries and looks to be rather complete with all nine member (if you include Cappadonna) showing up. Lot’s of extras included as well. Sounds like a definite must for all the big-time Wu-heads out there….

U-God aside (he only had an adlib) everybody put in work. If I had to choose I’d say Raekwon had the best verse on this record. Not to say that Ghost or Meth’s contributions were bad but Rae was just one step ahead.
