The Black Keys gave fans a treat on their Facebook page today when they posted the world premiere of the video for “The Baddest Man Alive.” The track is off the soundtrack of the upcoming film The Man With the Iron Fists’ and features the director of the film, Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA.
The rockers and RZA teamed up to record a sultry track that combines the best of both rock and rap worlds. The video for “The Baddest Man Alive” pays homage to the kung-fu film that it accompanies. Audiences see The Black Keys and RZA sitting at a table in a restaurant when, all of a sudden, they all begin to battle each other. Throughout the fight sequence there are small clips from The Man With The Iron Fists on different surfaces. The bloody aspects that audiences can expect to see from the feature (it was produced by Quentin Tarantino, after all) make their way into the video, including RZA ripping someone’s arm off.
