It's called "Gift of Hope"...
NME reports that RZA of the Wu Tang Clan has written a tribute song for Nelson Mandela called "Gift of Hope". It is a piano ballad with vocals from Will Wells. This follows "Destiny Bends", the song he wrote last week for Paul Walker's death, which also featured Will Wells. Both were added to SoundCloud as demos.
RZA said in a statement: "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."
He added that he was inspired by "the great Nelson Mandela and the cast of #Gangrelated", the hashtag referring to his new TV series.
