Many of Paul Walker's co-stars and collaborators have shared their condolences and memories of the late actor since his passing on November 30 following a horrific car accident in California, but RZA's tribute is one of the most touching yet.
The rapper recently co-starred with Paul in the upcoming crime drama Brick Mansions — and in the days after Paul's death, he teamed up with his sons and with singer-songwriter Will Wells to create a demo eulogizing the late actor.
Here's an excerpt from the note on RZA's SoundCloud page:
"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.'"
