RZA Works With Russell Crowe, Speaks On Justin Bieber's Raekwon Collaboration

The RZArector adds Russell Crowe to his directorial debut and says the Justin Bieber/Raekwon collabo is "great."

RZA and Russell Crowe worked together in 2007's American Gangster and they will be joining forces yet again. The two will combine their talents for The Man With the Iron Fist, RZA's first effort as a feature film director. E! Online reported the news, noting that Crowe will play a man who is ready to knock people out. 

“I won’t spoil it for you, but Russell’s gonna be the baddest man alive,” the Wu emcee/producer told E! “That man is in fighting shape. That man will knock you out.”

The film will be filmed in Shanghai and it is being co-produced and co-written by Eli Roth. 

This will not be the only time Crowe and RZA will be together again. The two will also appear in November's The Next Three Days

In other RZA news, the Shaolin representative recently spoke on the Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Raekwon collaboration, "Runaway Love (Remix)," saying he thinks it's "great." In an interview with Rap-Up, he said that mixing the styles can be a positive thing. 

“I think it’s crazy and it’s great because the [sampled] song, 'Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing ta Fuck Wit,’ is a hard song and to hear Justin Bieber on top of that song, it just shows that it’s like an old Kung-Fu theory. It says, ‘Be hard as steel, soft as cotton.’ I think music allows us to do that. Like Bruce Lee said, ‘Be like water my friend.’” 

He also went on to say he would collaborate with people from "different walks of life."

    if you really to hear some of that badaass bumping hardcore hip hop you dig in the crate, cause that shit is dead. Or may be not. As I've now lear'nt to appreciate other genre's but hip hop still lives and people are still doing it the way it was done in the 80s and 90s

      Hip-Hop is changing for the worse you bitch-made fag! If you cant tell that this decade has been largely the worst ever in music history then you know nothing about this culture or the world around you...get the fuck out of Hip-Hop and go listen to your Ga-Ga albums you fruitcake. Wu shamelessly collabbing with Bieber officially means hell has frozen over and the armageddon is near.
