RZA Dedicates New Song 'Destiny Blends' To Paul Walker, Releases Statement [Audio]



This song, entitled "Destiny Bends" was written last night after hearing the tragic news of the loss of a good man named Paul Walker. I met Paul on the set of the film Brick Mansion, where we talked, laughed, and exchanged ideas of life and fatherhood. 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. Men who learned the joy and pains of love in life, and success, while coming to realize that nothing is more important than family, friendship, and the brotherhood of humanity. Millions of people get to know an artist or movie star through their work, but few are allowed to cross each others' paths and see through the veil of stardom and find the common denominator that we share. As all physical things will decay and wither away, film, art, and music remain longer than the vessel that delivered them. In this vein, the one thing we can't take away or give back is time. So, thus, time is the most precious gift. I dedicated my time to compose this song with my two sons and new friend Will Wells, who was kind enough to sing and perform it for me. We dedicate it to Paul Walker. A good man. We had plans to continue working with each other in the future. It seemed destined, but "destiny bends".

*Note* This song is not for criticism, it's just a sketch demo. Please enjoy and reflect.

Your comrade in the struggle,
RZA

  16. Moving and Touching piece of art, RZA. This song made me breakdown, like no other song since "Gone". My baby brother passed at 25 years young a couple years ago and listening to "Gone" tore me apart as much as it helped me keep it together and get myself, my siblings, seeds and wife get through that impossible time of heartbreak. The loss of our loved ones will never be filled, but their memory and songs like these will forever keep their spirit alive in our hearts. Rest In Peace Ryan, ODB & Paul.

  43. RZA, you're quite the man. This song is beautiful.
    Paul Walker will be missed. He was a good actor and I'll be sad when watching Fast and Furious 7, where he'll be on the screen just laughing and having a blast when I know exactly what happened to him a few months later. May he rest in peace, and may his legacy live on through his movies which I have watched numerous times before and will probably watch numerous times again.
