Wu-Tang Clan offered $5 million for their single-copy album
Cash rules everything around them...
With their one-off album, The Wu – Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, Wu-Tang Clan seems to be taking the music world by storm. Offers for the record have been rolling in since they announced the recent news of their plans to sell just one copy.
According to Wu-Tang member, RZA, the group's highest offer for the 31-track record is in the multi-million dollar range, "Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday," RZA told Billboard, "So far, $5 million is the biggest number."
The hugely ambitious plan to try and sell a one-off piece of music was only announced a week ago by the group – and with offers already coming in for their music it demonstrates the influence they still have within today's music industry.
"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." RZA said.
