Listen: Black Keys And RZA Team Up For “The Baddest Man Alive”

In 2009, the Black Keys hooked up with a bunch of MCs (including RZA) for the strange-but-satisfying Blakroc collaboration. Now, the Keys and RZA team up again for “The Baddest Man Alive,” a badass new song taken from the soundtrack to RZA’s film The Man With The Iron Fists.

To recap, the film is RZA’s ode to his love of kung-fu movies, and it features Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, and Quentin Tarantino as the producer. Iron Fists hits theaters Nov. 2, but the soundtrack will be out Oct. 23 via Soul Temple/STAX/Red. Check out the stacked track list below.
