RZA Claims He’s Already Had A $5 Million Offer For The Wu-Tang Clan One Of One Album
Last week, AFH was among the first to report on a Wu-Tang Clan album, recorded in and currently stored in the nation of Morocco. Produced largely by longtime WTC affiliate Cilvaringz, the 31-track LP known as Wu: Once Upon A Time In Shaolin is reported to be only released on one single CD, available to a top bidder. RZA claimed that paid listening parties in Wu-approved headphones would be open to the public, so Heads could hear an LP separate from the anticipated A Better Tomorrow, presumed sixth album from the veteran New York Hip-Hop collective.
A week later, RZArecta’ spoke with Billboard and reports that he’s already been offered $2 million by an unnamed party. Better yet? That’s not high bid. The former Tommy Boy Records hopeful named Prince Rakeem claims that in order to be top billin’, it will now take a bid of over $5 million to bump the current party. Who? Guess away…
“So far, $5 million is the biggest number,” said The Abbott. “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.”
