While kung fu buffs may be excited for the RZA’s upcoming directorial debut Man with the Iron Fists, Hip Hop heads are likely most stoked for the flick’s feature-heavy soundtrack. Now, in a recent interview with MTV, the Abbott of the Wu-Tang Clan previews Kanye West’s contribution to the soundtrack.
RZA rapped the hook from Yeezy’s song on the soundtrack, titled “White Dress,” live from the red carpet of the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards. He said that apart from the hook, the song finds Kanye going in for nearly 40 straight bars, and compared the Chicago emcee’s performance to one of Ghostface Killah’s verses.
“Oh man, Kanye went in,” he said. “He’s got a song called ‘White Dress,’ and the hook goes like, ‘I seen you in the club in a tight dress/But I pictured you in a church in a white dress.’ That’s basically talking about some of the girls, you know, you wanna make a wife out of them, but they gotta get it together. Kanye’s a dope lyricist, but what he did on this particular song – it ain’t 16 bars; he’s going like how Ghostface goes, like 40 bars. Just going, he’s going, yo.”
