Fuse has released the opening track from "The Man with the Iron Fists," a ninja flick directed and co-written by Wu-Tang Clan's RZA. Fuse describes "The Baddest Man Alive," as "a swampy, creeping track that re-imagines the desolation and eeriness of an Ennio Morricone track as produced by B.B. King." Brought to you by RZA and blues rock band The Black Keys.

Give it a listen, via Fuse:

The movie, starring Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, features new music from Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa and the Wu-Tang Clan as well and will be released Nov. 2.
