Nothing against https://twitter.com/#!/RZA” target=”_blank”>RZA‘s yet-to-be-seen directing and acting skills in http://ironfists.com/” target=”_blank”>Man With the Iron Fists, which we previewed http://freshnessmag.com/2012/07/02/the-man-with-the-iron-fist-directed-by-rza-video/” target=”_blank”>here, but it’s no surprise that the film’s soundtrack has generated more buzz than the actual movie. Just look at the names with new music appearing in RZA’s kung-fu action flick: Kanye West, Pusha T, The Black Keys, Wiz Khalifa, Talib Kweli, Corinne Bailey Rae, and – of course – members of the Wu-Tang clan. Even if the movie itself, which releases November 2 and co-stars Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, is a flop, the soundtrack itself has to be a leading contender for the best hip-hop movie soundtrack this side of the millennium. The album hit stores on October 23, but the first ten tracks are available now to stream online http://soultemplemusic.bandcamp.com/album/the-man-with-the-iron-fists-soundtrack” target=”_blank”>here or after the jump.
