Rapper RZA has paid tribute to his Brick Mansions co-star Paul Walker by releasing a song dedicated to him.

The Fast and the Furious star died in a car crash in Valencia, California on Saturday at the age of 40.

RZA and Walker worked together on the film earlier this year, and bonded over their work and family while on set.

After hearing the news of his pal's death, the rapper recorded the song Destiny Bends on Saturday and released it the following day.

With the release of the track, RZA wrote, "This song, entitled Destiny Bends was written last night after hearing the tragic news of the loss of a good man named Paul Walker. I met Paul on the set of the film Brick Mansion, where we talked, laughed, and exchanged ideas of life and fatherhood.

"I only knew him personally for less than a year, but we knew each other through our work and art. 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. Men who learned the joy and pains of love in life, and success, while coming to realize that nothing is more important than family, friendship, and the brotherhood of humanity."

The rapper added, "Millions of people get to know an artist or movie star through their work, but few are allowed to cross each others' paths and see through the veil of stardom and find the common denominator that we share. As all physical things will decay and wither away, film, art, and music remain longer than the vessel that delivered them. In this vein, the one thing we can't take away or give back is time. So, thus, time is the most precious gift.

"I dedicated my time to compose this song with my two sons and new friend Will Wells, who was kind enough to sing and perform it for me. We dedicate it to Paul Walker. A good man. We had plans to continue working with each other in the future. It seemed destined, but destiny bends."

RZA also took to Twitter on Sunday to express his grief, writing, "Paul my Buddy. There's nothing I can say...A good man... Silent tears. My family pauses a moment for you...in the studio we light a candle.
