Recently, we reported that the Wu-Tang Clan were making a one-of-a-kind album, aiming to restore the lost value of the LP.
In doing so, The Wu-Tang Clan have spent nearly 20 years developing The Wu–Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. That 20 years is about to payoff big time, to the tune of at least 5 million dollars!
The project is the brainchild of RZA as a means to re-establish music as a highly prized piece of art. They plan to put the album on exhibit at museums before selling it off to the highest bidder.
“So far, $5 million is the biggest number. 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.”
