FUSE TV - World Premiere: RZA and Black Keys Fight For Title of "The Baddest Man Alive"

RZA has been slowly letting the world hear tracks from his upcoming soundtrack to The Man With the Iron Fists, but so far, the Wu-Tang Clan mastermind has allowed others to do the talking. Now, Fuse is proud to exclusively premiere "The Baddest Man Alive," the opening track from the soundtrack featuring the Black Keys and RZA himself.

We've already heard "Black Out" featuring Ghostface Killah, M.O.P. and Pharoahe Monch, "Built For This" with Method Man, Freddie Gibbs and Streetlife and Wu-Tang Clan's "Six Directions of Boxing." Now there's "Baddest," a swampy, creeping track that re-imagines the desolation and eeriness of an Ennio Morricone track as produced by B.B. King. Opening as a deft mix of bottom-heavy drums and blues guitar licks, Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach brags that he can "take the pitchfork from the devil" and "handcuff the judge and put a cop in jail" on a track that wouldn't be out of place on a future Handsome Boy Modeling School album.

RZA, for his part, one-ups Auerbach, rhyming, "I'll snatch food from the mouth of a tiger/Take a gasoline bath then I walk through fire" before claiming that he'll "jump off the Empire State butt-naked" and doing unspeakable things to both the Grim Reaper and Beauty from Beauty and the Beast. It's a reunion of sorts, as RZA appeared on "Tellin' Me Things" and "Dollaz & Sense" from the Keys' 2009 rap-rock collaboration Blakroc.

RZA is directing, starring and co-writing (alongside Hostel's Eli Roth) the film, which opens November 2 (it's only one of many endeavors featured in our rundown of RZA's 10 Coolest Projects). Check out the soundtrack, though, when it drops in full on October 23 via Soul Temple Records/STAX/RED Distribution.
