You’ve already gotten a chance to listen to the soundtrack to RZA’s The Man With the Iron Fists, but you still have to wait until Nov. 2 to see the movie itself. Boo! But luckily, there’s a way to split the difference: the new action-heavy music video for the Black Keys and RZA’s “The Baddest Man Alive.”
The collaboration leads off the movie’s soundtrack, which hits streets today, and impressively blends together the Keys’ brand of bluesy bar rock and RZA’s iconic flow. But the best thing about the Chris Marrs Piliero-directed clip, which pits the Wu-Tang vet against the Akron band, has to be the innovative use of food as weaponry. The shot of RZA smacking Dan Auerbach with a fish is pretty priceless — and a good sign that The Man With the Iron Fists will probably be as awesome as it looks.
Take a look at the “Baddest Man Alive” clip below and let us know what you think:
