RZA Enlists Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa For "The Man With The Iron Fists" Soundtrack

RZA also re-orchestrates Wu-Tang Clan cuts for the upcoming kung fu film.
RZA is pulling out the big guns for the soundtrack to his directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists. During an interview with Wired, the Wu-Tang Clan swordsman revealed the eclectic lineup for the soundtrack to the film, which will feature Kanye WestWiz Khalifa, The Black Keys, My Chemical Romance and more.
"It’s very diverse. You have music from Black Keys, music from Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, My Chemical Romance, rock and roll guys, as well as Sally Yeh, who does John Woo movies, a famous Chinese singer," he said. "And then we’ve got my buddy Howard Drossin, he’s a trained musician, trained composer and we wrote a lot of different cues."
He also shared his excitement over the fact that Sony handed over the Wu-Tang Clan masters for his use on the film. RZA said that he broke down the tracks and re-orchestrated them, which he also did for records given to him by Stax Recordings.
"One thing I think we did that was so cool for me was we went and got some of Wu-Tang’s original songs, the masters, Sony gave them to us to you, and we took out a lot of stuff that was in it and re-orchestrated it. And then Stax also came on board to help us out and they gave me about 10 of their famous Stax cues, songs from William Bell, from Isaac Hayes, from Mable John. So we were able strip them down and re-orchestrate it. You’re going to have a great time listening to this movie as a soundtrack."
