Nothing against RZA‘s yet-to-be-seen directing and acting skills in Man With the Iron Fists, which we previewed 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 here or after the jump.
Release Date: October 23rd, 2012 (Tuesday)
