Wu-Tang and De La Soul: One Of These Groups Is Releasing An Album You Can’t Own
Wu-Tang Clan – Protect Ya Neck
Today in breaking news from classic hip-hop groups: the Wu-Tang Clan has a new album coming out in July called A Better Tomorrow and you’ll all be able to buy it! But that’s not the news. What about a brand new Wu-Tang album that you won’t be able to get your hands on?
That one’s called Once Upon A Time in Shaolin and, according to Forbes, only a single hard copy will be manufactured,
RZA told Forbes:
“We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music. We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king.”
After a museum tour, where interested parties can pay to enter and listen to the two-hour-plus album, it will be available for sell to a single buyer in an “engraved silver-and-nickel box,” designed by British-Moroccan artist Yahya. The group expects the sale of this album to be in the millions.
