Music icon RZA believes fans should appreciate music like an exclusive art. We sat down with the Wu-Tang Clan founder to talk about A Better Tomorrow, the rumored $5 million fans pooled together to buy a sole copy of its next album, and the so-called Wu-Tang Clan pay tier.
Luckily the lights were on, or this would have been much worst.
Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to fuck with!! This idea is so next level that I have to commend them and can’t wait to see it come to fruition. Forbes got all the details:
ll 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.
“We’re about to sell an album like nobody else sold it before,” says Robert “RZA” Diggs, the first Wu-Tang member to speak on record about Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, in an exclusive interview with FORBES. “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.”
