Right now, somewhere deep in the heart of Morocco, rests a new Wu-Tang Clan album, but not the new Wu-Tang Clan album you’re thinking of. The already-announced A Better Tomorrow is coming out in July, but RZA, GZA, and the rest of the Killah Rascals also secretly worked on Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, a double-LP that’s going on tour. Not the group — the album itself.
Like the work of a master Impressionist, it will truly be one-of-a-kind—in lieu of a traditional major label or independent launch, the iconic hip-hop collective will make and sell just one copy of the album. And similar to a Monet or a Degas, the price tag will be a multimillion-dollar figure.
