RZA and Paul Banks team up as Banks & Steelz for their new album "Anything But Words."
Hip-hop legend RZA and indie rock god Paul Banks are coming together as 'Banks & Steelz' for a joint effort, which by the sounds of it, probably won't be their only album under that moniker.
They announced the album, Anything But Words, in a press release this morning, alongside a tracklist and tour dates. The project will feature a few other rap OGs, namely, Kool Keith, Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Masta Killa, as well as one other indie rock artist-- Florence Welch.
