Wu-Tang is selling their secret album to the highest bidder
Many fans are excited of the idea of Wu Tang Clan’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album but others are angry that only one copy of this album will be sold to the highest bidder instead of it being available to the public. Well this secretive LP may be available to the public just as the fans want it to be, if they can wait 88 years for it.
“After 88 years the copyright, which includes public and commercial rights, automatically transfers to the owner of the work,” producer Cilvaringz told Forbes.
Wu general RZA explains that he intends for the album to be viewed as a piece of rare art instead of a general commercialized album. Cilvaringz goes on to say “Owning a Picasso doesn’t mean you can sell prints or reproductions, but that you’re the sole owner of a unique original,” said RZA. “And that’s what Once Upon A Time In Shaolin is. It’s a unique original rather than a master copy of an album.”
Do you see yourself waiting for this album to be released to the public or are you willing to spend thousands of dollars on the exclusive content?
