RZA - Gift of Hope ft. Will Wells/Destiny Blends


I've grown a lot of respect for RZA in the last little bit. He's been keeping it real and Destiny Blends is his tribute to Paul Walker who passed away due to a tragic car crash. Then he drops Gift of Hope, which was brought about with the passing of Nelson Mandela. Here's what he had to say for both occasions:

INSPIRED BY THE GREAT NELSON MANDELA AND THE CAST OF #GANGRELATED... DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON MANY OF US WORKING IN HOLLYWOOD REALIZE WE ARE MIGRATES AND MOST OF OUR FAMILIES ARE ROOTED IN DIFFERENT CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IT'S COOL WHEN A TEAM OF US WORKING ON A PROJECT HAVE GOOD CAMARADERIE AND ARE ABLE TO BREAK BREAD,SHARE JOY AND LAUGHTER. LONG PROJECTS CAUSES YOU TO MISSED LOVE ONES AND THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF IT ALL MAY LEAVE ONE DISCONNECTED FROM GOOD WILLED PEOPLE AND TRUSTWORTHY COMPANIONSHIP. SOME SAY ITS ALL A SONG AND DANCE OUT HERE. THE DIVERSITY OF THE WORK FORCE HERE ON THE GROUND RANGE FROM ALL ETHNICS AND CLASS OF PEOPLE. MANY COME WITH THE DREAMS AND HOPE OF MAKING IT BIG AND THE MAJORITY MAY NOT SEE THAT DREAM FULFILLED. YET THEY WILL NOTICE THEY ARE STILL PART OF A UNIQUE WORK CULTURE. ONE THAT DEPENDS HIGHLY ON COLLABORATION. ONE WHERE THE BIG FISH SUCCESS DEPENDS HEAVILY ON THE LITTLE FISH. ONE WHERE RACE CREED AND SEXUALITY WILL EVENTUALLY BE SUPERSEDED BY NEED AND DEMAND TO GET THE JOB DONE ON TIME AND ON BUDGET. ONE WHERE THE END PRODUCT WILL BECOME A ENTITY OF ITS OWN, APPEARING TO BE SINGULAR AND INDEPENDENT OF THE MULTICULTURAL MULTI-ETHNIC BODIES THAT CREATED IT, YET AS THE END TITLE CREDITS WILL SHOW THIS IS NO "ONE MAN HORSE AND PONY". CAST AND CREWS SHOULD TAKE PRIDE KNOWING THAT EVERY LIL BIT OF DEDICATED WORK HELPS... THIS MICRO WORK FORCE CAN BE LIKEN TO A MACRO SOCIETY WHERE - UNTIL THE MEMBERS OF THAT SOCIETY REALIZES THAT WORKING PEACEFULLY AND DILIGENTLY TOGETHER WILL END IN A GREATER REWARD FOR FUTURE OF THE WHOLE ,THAT SAID SOCIETY WILL CONTINUE TO FAIL AND EVENTUALLY IMPLODE AND ERASE ITSELF FROM MAP DUE TO ITS OWN INTERNAL DISCORD. IN THIS VEIN GREATER MEN HAVE PUT DOWN THEIR INDIVIDUAL STRIFE IN THE INTEREST OF BUILDING THE COLLECTIVE. THUS GREAT MEN ARE KNOWN BY THE MARK THEY LEFT ON THEIR COUNTRY MASSES...HARD WORKING MOTHERS AND FATHERS SEE THE RESULTS WHEN THE CHILDREN RAISE THEIR FAMILY TO HIGHER HEIGHTS...PLEASE ENJOY THIS DEMO THAT REFLECT THESE IDEAS...



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
