With RZA's Quentin Tarantino-produced directorial debut, The Man With The Iron Fists, hitting theaters on November 2nd and its highly anticipated soundtrack getting a release a week before, the grandmaster has let loose one of the biggest tracks on the album, Wu-Tang Clan's "Six Directions of Boxing."
While some members are certainly missing, "Six Directions" (named after an obscure martial arts movie from '81, naturally) does boast appearances from Ghostface, GZA, U-God and Cappa; all who showed up in top form. It's not exactly the reunion we've all been hoping for, but we'll never decline an invitation down to chambers.
