Wu-Tang Clan offered $5 million for one-of-a-kind album

on April 02, 2014, 1:00pm

As previously reported, the mighty Wu-Tang Clan have two new albums on the way: their 20th anniversary record A Better Tomorrow and a unique, one-of-a-kind LP called The Wu – Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. The latter has been in development for nearly 20 years, a project thought up by RZA as a way to re-establish music as a highly-prized piece of art. The plan is to put the album on exhibit at museums around the world before selling it off to the highest bidder, and as RZA has revealed to Billboard, there’s quite a bit of interest.

“Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday,” RZA told Billboard. “I’ve been getting a lot of emails: some from people I know, some from people I don’t know, and they’re also emailing other members of my organization.

“So far, $5 million is the biggest number,” he continued. “I don’t know how to measure it, but it gives us an idea that what we’re doing is being understood by some. And there are some good peers of mine also, who are very high-ranking in the film business and the music business, sending me a lot of good will. It’s been real positive.”

Honestly, for $5 million you could have each member of Wu-Tang come over for a slumber party (including Cappadonna) and still have enough money leftover for pizza and diet Coke. But to each their own.

This is so disturbing on so many levels. Fuck you RZA. Give the money to charity to redeem your greedy ass, narcissistic self.
