RZA Releases Nelson Mandela Tribute Song

(Radio.com) RZA has no shortage of moving tributes for those who have passed. After releasing "Destiny Bends" when he heard of Paul Walker's death earlier this month, the Wu-Tang Clan member has followed suit with "Gift of Hope," a song acknowledging Nelson Mendela's passing last week.

Will Wells provides the hook on the piano-driven ode to Mandela, which RZA explains was inspired in part by his work on the upcoming Fox show Gang Related.

"Society will continue to fail and eventually implode and erase itself from map due to its own internal discord," RZA wrote on his SoundCloud page. "In this vein greater men have put down their individual strife in the interest of building the collective. Thus great men are known by the mark they left on their country masses…hard working mothers and fathers see the results when the children raise their family to higher heights…please enjoy this demo that reflect these ideas."

"Will you ever realize the gift of hope can save a hurting soul," Wells sings. Listen here.
