NEW YORK, NY – Remember Wu-Tang Clan? Y’know, the number one hip hop group in the nineties? They just announced that they’ll be selling one copy of their upcoming double album, “Once Upon A Time in Shaolin.” that’s right, just one.
Because — art?
Yup, Wu-Tang says they want their work to be regarded as the ultimate collector’s item- as if it were fine art.
In fact, Wu-Tang member Robert ‘RZA’ Diggs says, “This is like having the scepter of an Egyptian king.”
The starting price-tag on this once in a lifetime album is one million dollars — that buyer is one dedicated fan.
But hey, the box it comes in is pretty fancy: engraved silver and nickel.
It’s up to the album’s future owner to release it – the only other way you’ll get to hear Wu-Tang’s new music is by attending their upcoming tour.
Pirates beware: security will be extra tight to safeguard against people trying to record the music.
Maybe it’s time for Wu-Tang to retreat into obscurity… oh, wait.
