RZA pays tribute to the late martial icon and a movie star Bruce Lee on his new single “Be Like Water”. The Wu-Tang Clan rapper’s song was inspired by the 30 for 30 documentary about Lee, “Be Water”, premiered Sunday on ESPN.
RZA is well known as a fan of eastern philosophy and martial arts and has a history of idolizing Lee in his music. The Wu-Tang Clan’s debut album “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)” was a homage to Bruce Lee’s final film before his death “Enter The Dragon”, as well as fellow kung fu classic the Shaw Brothers’ “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin”.
Watch below the video to RZA new song “Be Like Water”, the single from a new movie about Bruce Lee “Be Water”:
“Bruce Lee’s teachings extended beyond physical martial arts. He was full of philosophy and mindfulness. His quote ‘Be Water my friend’ is profound and multi-tiered in the definition. It inspires the idea that in adapting to life situations, sometimes we have to flow smoothly as a stream, while other times we have to crash like a tsunami”, RZA commented about his inspiration.
The movie “Be Water” premieres 7th July 2020 on ESPN.
