RZA has a good explanation for why the Wu-Tang clan is only releasing one copy of their upcoming album “Wu — Once Upon in Shaolin.” The rapper/actor/director told HipHollywood during the press day for his latest flick “Brick Mansions” that the album is “a work of art”.
“It’s more like a painting, more like a sculpture, it’s not just an album, it’s a work of art and should be treated as such,” explained RZA.
RZA also said the double album was secretly recorded over the course of six years and will feature all of the groups original members.
At the time of the press day, the album had gotten bids as high as $5 million. But, fans can get still their hands on new Wu-Tang material once their 20th anniversary album “A Better Tomorrow” drops in June.
