Wu-Tang Clan Selling Secret Album

wusecret

Million Dollar Bills Y’all?

A collection of unreleased songs will make up the Wu-Tang Clan’s next album, Once Upon a Time In Shaolin. The sole copy is hidden in the silver and nickel box.

According to Forbes, the clan plans to showcase the piece around the world. Visitors will be allowed to listen to the album for a fee before selling it up to millions of dollars. Says RZA:

“We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music. We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king. The idea that music is art has been something we advocated for years. And yet its doesn’t receive the same treatment as art in the sense of the value of what it is, especially nowadays when it’s been devalued and diminished to almost the point that it has to be given away for free.”

    that shit better be a complete classic for a million dollars lol

  • aaron

    I’d only cop if it came wit free digital download.

  • Eddy Eyad

    Music is supposed to be available for all to listen. You don’t make something classic by putting it in a tin. Wu-Tang are legendary but I shake my head to this

  • GreenBergs

    lolerinos

  • Hussle

    shit…they better have the ghost of Pac and Biggie spittin throughout the album, with a hook from Aaliyah and a guest verse from Michael Jackson on it.

    • polopolo1

      Shit they better get a brand new Charlie Chaplin sample with that shit too

    • cannon

      shit that tin can better have a ounce of some rare wu tang kush,beyonces phone number,the kung fu panda 3 movie, a secret bruce lee movie, and a classic album by wu tang then maybe… ill buy it for a grand

      • ShitYouNeedToKnow

        Ruined it…

    • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

      LOLZ AWESOME COMMENT!!!

  • Chronic

    $1 million?!? I think I’ll just wait for the leak…

  • LOL

    they should be ashamed for trying to sell a crumby album for a million bucks, how desperate can they get? these guys are millionaires already, fuck outta here with that bullshit. these rappers keep depreciating their music like this, this is why hip hop is in this state. keep holding on to your music you guys will be forgotten.

    • Hussle

      LOL RZA is multi-millionnaire. them other niggaz bums

  • Gingerbread Man

    If it was recorded in the 90’s and isn’t being released till now it must just be a bunch of extras from their other albums. I’m guessing they need the money to pay their broke members to do the new album.

  • WilliamSTEEZO

    This is a dope, and creative concept to release an album.

    • GreenBergs

      creative? yes, dope? no…the question is will this work like they want it to..?

  • trymebiz

    It is going to get leaked, I garuntee it.

  • Michael Ibbett

    I like Wu obviously, and do think this is kind of creative, but it isn’t like their Shit is some sort of scarce commodity, or delicacy. This would have been amazing to do for the Wu tang forever album though. Or an eminem album or something where a million people count the days until release. If he did it with unreleased MMLP/TES era songs or some shit.

  • Aaron

    I could’ve seen Kanye doing this… But Wu-Tang?

  • yeah

    I’d like to take part but being in the south will probably give me a 0% chance getting to hear it , glad to see they really have been up to something major, perhaps

  • Kevin Banks

    RZA staying on top of the game, this is a revolutionary concept

  • izzy

    this really dumb idea tho … you know you can’t treat muzik like its a painting that you have to go 2 certain place to see and then go home … these old fools just don’t know how to capitalize on the internet trying to be creative and shit .. just give your fans that been riding with you what they want and release it for free

  • PTK

    makes sense. some of you are too short sighted and have never waited in line for a 12am release, some of you never spend money on music. jay, bey, kweli and others have moved on – the napster era is over. RIP

  • Cool Vinny Testeverde

    Raekwon still ain’t gonna be on it

  • http://pic.twitter.com/lGGo9I7py1 Poor Homie Quann

    shit gon leak on youtube lol

  • M.A.T.

    I like the idea, but if the album isn’t good it’s going to look like a gimmick. Just my opinion…

  • JD

    Still better than the idea of ‘Detox’

  • Coney

    I must have a different definition of what a “secret” is than them

    I must have a different definition of what a “secret” is than them
