This might just be the weirdest but most awesome combination ever. The Wu Tang Clan’s very own RZA has remixed Black Tusk’s “The Takeoff.” The remix is a part of a new video series that the rapper is doing with Nike shoes called RZA vs. Nike 6.0. This particular remix can be heard in the video The RZA vs. Garret Reynolds (professional BMX rider), which can be viewed above. An mp3 of all the remixes RZA has done for the ad campaign so far can also be downloaded for free via Nike.com.
This is pretty awesome because not only is it an unusual collaboration between two pretty different artists, but it’s also giving Black Tusk some great exposure. What other sludge metal band gets to say that they were sampled by RZA and featured in a Nike video series?
