Wu-Tang's 'A Better Tomorrow' drops tomorrow, but RZA has already conceded he will lose $500,000 of his own money on the collective's first studio album since 2007.
That is if you don't include the mysterious The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album, which was recorded within the last couple years but apparently only exists as a single copy that the band was hoping to sell for a cool $5 million.
That would obviously make up for any losses on A Better Tomorrow, and for a few hours today it seemed like Wu had done the improbable and sold the one-off to none other than EDM master Skrillex, who would be a man with that kind of cash.
But, alas, this didn't happen. What sparked the rumor is that the album makes an appearance at the end of Skrillex’s recent 'Fuck That' music video. In a Wu-Tang fan forum, the band's producer Cilvaringz confirmed that Skrillex had paid the high price for Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. A few hours later he clarified that he was joking.
Bro that was a joke, the album is not sold to Skrillex. It’s only in his new video for the song 'Fuck That.' I would assume the sale of the album would be a grand official announcement, not a simple “yup” joking around with forum members we've been talking to for year.Hmm. So how much does Once Upon A Time In Shaolin rent for?
