The Wu Tang Clan’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin has been purchased, according to reports. The one and only album was purchased by a “private American collector” for “millions” of dollars. The album comes with the hand-carved nickel silver box, a gold-leafed certificate of authenticity and a leather-bound book containing the one of a kind album’s lyrics and the “behind the song” stories. The purchase also included a pair of customized PMC MB2-XBD speakers worth $55,000, that had not been previously mentioned.
The album runs 128 minutes long and consists of a total of 31 tracks including skits. The kicker to all of this is the fact the owner is not allowed to release the music to the public for 88 years.
Who really won in this transaction?
Will anyone care in 88 years?
