Recently there’s been talk of Kanye West fantasizing about a “White Dress,” but this time it has more to do with the music than an actual walk down the aisle.
The song is featured on the soundtrack for “The Man With the Iron Fists,” a martial arts film that serves as Grammy Award-winning producer RZA‘s directorial feature film debut. The Wu-Tang Clan leader also produced the entire movie soundtrack.
In addition to West appearing on the effort, Raekwon, Pusha T and Talib Kweli, among others, show up. However, the musical connection between West and RZA is what caused the latter to tap the G.O.O.D. Music head to create a new track for the project.
“We worked together on a few things in the past, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, but, you know, we stay in tune with each other,” RZA tells The BoomBox.
West, whom RZA calls his “little brother because I’m older,” was already in the back of the producer-turned-director’s mind when it came time to work on the soundtrack.
“He was in town when I was editing,” he explains. “I always wanted to do a song for the movie and now the movie is done. I said, ‘Yo, come in and I want to show you something, what I want your song to be.”
