Wu-Tang Clan - Once Upon a time in Shaolin

Recommended Posts

In July, Wu-Tang Clan will release a new album, A Better Tomorrow, which coincides with the 20th anniversary of the group's debut. But Forbes reports that they're also set to release another LP, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, with a caveat: They're just making one copy of the double album, which was recorded in secret over the last few years.

The album, which features the group's original members, will be housed inside an engraved silver-and-nickel box created by British-Moroccan artist Yahya. According to RZA and producer Tarik "Cilvaringz" Azzougarh, the plan is to tour it through museums, galleries and festivals, where visitors will be charged a price to listen to the 128-minute, 31 song album on headphones provided by the venue. (Rigorous security checks will discourage the possibility of any illegal recording.)

"We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music," RZA said in an interview with Forbes. "We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king." After the tour is over, the group will make the album available for purchase for a price "in the millions."

I'd wish they were being this exclusive about their use of samples of glass breaking in their live show (every other minute there was that sample, f'in annoying as hell).

It's produced by Cilvaringz, a guy who I only vaguely recognise for appearing as a producer on a handful of forgettable Wu solo tracks. So I don't think we're going to be missing much. A quick swoop of his wiki suggests that Barcelona's Eric Abidal is going to be rapping on the record as well.

It's like they took an old school Flaming Lips concept and made it annoying and snooty.

There is a definitely a middle aged, white hip-hop nerd out there who will pay any price asked.
