Tributes to Paul Walker have arrived steadily since news of his death in a car crash emerged over the holiday weekend. “Destiny Bends,” written by RZA and sung by Will Wells, is a moving ode that reflects on various aspects of Walker’s life, including his recent reconnection with his teenaged daughter and his passion for driving.
RZA and Walker met less than a year ago on the set of the upcoming film Brick Mansions, but as RZA wrote on his SoundCloud page, “We saw in each other a kindred spirit of men coming from unlikely circumstances, and rising to be the light and beacon of our family and loved ones.”
