RZA

I Wrote This Song for Paul Walker

'I Thought We Had Another Day to Smile'

RZA -- the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan -- paid tribute to his friend and former movie co-star Paul Walker with a new song ... and it's incredibly emotional.

RZA -- who worked with Paul on a film called "Brick Mansion" -- posted the tribute song called "Destiny Bends" online Sunday night ... and says he wrote it with singer Will Wells after hearing the tragic death news.

In the song, performed by Wells, RZA reflects on the time they shared together and thanks Paul for his friendship.

"On that highway to Heaven, you will drive in the wind and surf in the seas .. oh how can this be?"

RZA says he made the tribute because, "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."

He adds, "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."

What a sleazy, self-promoting douchbag, taking advantage of walker's death. But then again, it Hollywood.

You can tell this song is very heart-felt. It isn't for ka-ching or publicity as some are saying. Honestly, I started to tear up about half way through the track. This is a lovely dedication to Paul.

Was Paul gay? The way Tyrese and Wu-Tang have been crying is shocking. Something is going on behind the scenes. Was Tyrese his lover?

The thing that I am upset the most about this tragic accident is for the children and the family that was left behind for both of these men. Their life has now changed forever. No matter what the cause is or who is a fault. It doesn't matter now. It is done and now they all mourn. How fast a life can be striped away from us. Always be kind to others as Paul was. Not only was he a good actor (that was just his job)but a good beautiful person inside and out- we will always remember all of his good traits he did for the world.

that was very heartfelt and very unexpected.
nice to see people (a RAPPER) showing respect when that time is due regardless of our so called indifferences……the hope would be: the same compassion and respect that is shown is extended when its the flip side…wishing his family well….
