Wu-Tang Clan to Sell One Copy of New (Secret) Album

They weren’t lying when they said “Cash rules everything around me.” Wu-Tang Clan have announced that they are releasing a double album entitled The Wu–Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, and that it will be possibly the most limited release to date. They want to sell only one physical copy of the album. Start saving up your money, kids. This is an album that they have apparently been recording in secret for apparently the past 20 years and they are saying that they are wanting “millions” for it.

One of the major brains behind Wu-Tang, the RZA said, “We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king.” Clearly they still think they are “nuthin ta fuck wit.”

The idea behind it is brilliant though, and very respectable. They claim that music has lost its value. “The idea that music is art has been something we advocated for years,” explained RZA. “And yet it doesn’t receive the same treatment as art in the sense of the value of what it is, especially nowadays when it’s been devalued and diminished to almost the point that it has be given away for free.”

They also plan on charging somewhere around $30 a head for the listening party, and will be very strict and determined to keep people from recording this. Could this be the return of the Wu-Tang’s relevancy?
