With RZA's Man with the Iron Fists selling ample tickets and soundtrack copies, SOHH hit up Wu-Tang Clan member Masta Killa for his take on Bobby Digital's success.
Although he has yet to peep the flick, Masta said he is blown away by its soundtrack.
"To tell you the truth, brother, I haven't even see the movie as of yet," MK told SOHH. "But just knowing my brother and this has been his vision since we watched kung fu movies on 42nd Street back in the days. So to see his vision finally come to the level of what he saw it? That's what's more fulfilling for me more than anything because he finally lived it out how he wanted to do it. ... I listened to the soundtrack. Oh I definitely listened to the music. I just didn't get a chance to see the movie yet. I listened to the soundtrack from top to bottom. I gots to do that." (SOHH)
RZA's new kung fu action flick opened up in the Top 5 at the box office last weekend.

Wu-Tang Clan's RZA recently talked about getting Kanye West to pen "White Dress" during the film's editing process.
"With Kanye, it was a little different because he was invited into the editing room very early," the Wu-Tang vet told MTV News, explaining that West actually got a chance to see some of the film before recording. "When I had the scene done with Lucy Liu and all of these pretty girls, I reached out to him and said, 'I want you to come to the editing room and see this scene and potentially give me a song for it.' So he came in, watched the scene and he loved it, and all he had was a demo of the music. I told him, 'You could take this music, add to it and flip it, because I know how good you are at what you do. But the main thing is that I want it to be a female-based song.'" (MTV)
