RZA & the Black Keys "The Baddest Man Alive" (video)
Published Oct 22, 2012Among the many stellar collaborations to be found on RZA's The Man with the Iron Fists soundtrack is the Wu-Tang rapper's own team-up with blues rock duo the Black Keys. Now, that track has received its own video.
"The Baddest Man Alive" begins as a typical Black Keys number, but it takes a detour into hip-hop halfway through thanks to a verse from RZA, who explains, "Not bad meaning bad but I'm bad meaning good." The accompanying clip is appropriately both badass and comical, as RZA and the Black Keys sit down for dinner and end up completely trashing the restaurant as they fight for who gets the only fortune cookie.
The Man with the Iron Fists Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is out October 23 via Soul Temple/STAX /RED Music. Stream the whole thing or order your copy from Bandcamp.
