Banks & Steelz are back with new music. Today (May 12), Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Interpol’s Paul Banks drop “Who Needs the World,” which was was mixed and mastered by Dan Seiders and Will Holland at Chillhouse Studios in Boston, Mass.
The song starts f with RZA speaking about how the planet is suffering before he begins rapping.
“I’m about to embark, go far, far, far on a new excursion/Not dyin’ or talkin’ bout flyin’ fifty million miles above the surface/Happiness, is that satisfaction I’m satisfied with the main attraction,” RZA raps.
The superstar duo released their debut album, Anything But Words, last August. The 12-track album found RZA and Banks merging their styles together for a different sound. Guest features ranged from Florence Welch Florence + The Machine, Kool Keith and the Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Masta Killa.
RZA and Banks began collaborating on music all the way back in 2013, after the rapper’s manager asked him which artist he wanted to make music with. The result was a collaboration with Banks.
