Last week we told you about Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, the “secret” one-of-a-kind album Wu-Tang Clan are looking to sell for millions of dollars this year. Such a plan carries obvious risks, but it looks like their ambition might actually pay off. According to Billboard, RZA has already received multiple big-money offers for their album, as high as $5 million.
Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday. 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.
Though early signs are promising, the Wu have yet to announce dates for their album “tour.” As RZA told Forbes, the group are planning to take the CD to museums, galleries and festivals across the world before putting it on sale.
