RZA, the leader of the hip hop ensemble Wu-Tang Clan, has penned a song in tribute to his friend Paul Walker, who died in a car accident on Saturday. The two met on the set of Brick Mansions, one of Walker's last film roles before his death, and struck up a friendship. You can listen to the son, titled 'Destiny Bends', below.
Quoted by Rolling Stone, RZA says of Walker: "We talked, laughed, and exchanged ideas of life and fatherhood. We saw in each other a kindred spirit of men coming from unlikely circumstances, and rising to be the light and beacon of our family and loved ones."
He continued: "Men who learned the joy and pains of love in life, and success, while coming to realise that nothing is more important than family, friendship and the brotherhood of humanity."
Explaining the title of the song, RZA said: "We had plans to continue working with each other in the future. It seemed destined, but destiny bends..."
