Stream: “The Man With the Iron Fists” Official Soundtrack

Not often do original motion picture soundtracks break the mold of mediocrity, but theĀ RZA-directed “The Man With The Iron Fists” soundtrack certainly turns heads thanks to features and production from Kanye West, the RZA himself (accompanied by Wu-Tang Clan), Talib Kweli, and others. This may be one of the few scores that actually cements itself as a top five hip-hop album in any given year. Listen below:

Song of the Day

Talib Kweli-Lonely People

Here’s the date Blake was talking about. We saw Talib Kweli, member of Blackstar and a hip hop legend, at the Canopy Club in Urbana last Friday night. The show was great, with Talib playing most of The Beautiful Struggle (probably his best album top to bottom) and showing the crowd new songs from Gutter Rainbows and even an unreleased song with DJ/Producer 9th Wonder. The energy Talib brings to the stage is just about unmatched, and the live band that accompanied him was terrific. A top 3 hip hop show that I’ve been too.

The video is self recorded, so sorry if the quality isn’t the best… I got pretty excited when I heard the Lonely People track come on. Download here.
