RZA lined up distribution Stax Records/RED Distribution to help market, promote and distribute “The Man With the Iron Fists.”
“We went and got some of The Wu-Tang original songs…we took out a lot of stuff that was in it, and we re-orchestrated it,” RZA said. “Stax also came on board to help us out, and they gave me about 10 of their famous Stax cues, songs from William Bell, from Isaac Hayes, from Mable John. So you’re going to have a great time listening to this movie as a soundtrack.”
