The first in a series of almost daily leaks from the The Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack gets the video treatment.
Method Man, Freddie Gibbs, and StreetLife rap their way through Chinatown for the ‘Built For This’ video. The clip also intercuts footage from RZA’s directorial debut, presenting the clearest look yet at his kung-fu exploitation flick. There’s also a cameo from the Wu-Tang mastermind behind the boards.
On the East-meets-Stax beat, Method Man reminds us why he’s been such a fascinating voice in hip-hop for nearly two decades. Freddie Gibbs provides his trademarked g-rap and laid-back double time, while longtime Wu-Tang backbencher StreetLife holds his own, offering an absurd bit of bluster: “I’m the reason why your baby mama waterbirths.”
Watch the video above and stream the entire soundtrack now; it’s out on October 2 with film premiering on November 2.
