Late Sunday night, Wu-Tang member RZA took to Facebook to share his heartache at the recent death of actor Paul Walker. RZA explained that after hearing news of the tragedy, he spent the night writing the song "Destiny Bends," a demo track crafted to honor Walker's life.
RZA wrote about meeting Walker during the filming of "Brick Mansions," and the immediate friendship the two struck up:
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".
