Among those affected by Paul Walker’s death is Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA, who late last night released a tribute song to his friend and former coworker.

Titled “Destiny Bends,” the song was written shortly after word of Walker’s passing went public, RZA explains in the SoundCloud post.

“I met Paul on the set of the film Brick Mansion, where we talked, laughed, and exchanged ideas of life and fatherhood,” he wrote. “I only knew him personally for less than a year, but we knew each other through our work and art. 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.” 

RZA, who has been sidelining in films for a while now, said that he and Walker “had plans to continue working with each other in the future. … It seemed destined, but ‘destiny bends.'”

The track was composed by RZA and his two sons, with vocals by Will Wells. The post ended with the following note: “This song is not for criticism, it’s just a sketch demo. Please enjoy and reflect.”
