To say that Wu-Tang Clan does things a bit differently may be an understatement. Ever since their arrival on the national stage with their debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the Staten Island group of nine have blazed their own trail in a crowded and increasingly commercial world of hip-hop.
So, perhaps it shouldn’t have been a surprise when they announced a one-of-a-kind production, where they would release just one copy of their latest album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, and sell it to the highest bidder.
The group was motivated by trying to make history in the music industry once again, and no doubt drum up some more publicity for a group who saw floundering sales of its last full album back in December of 2013.
That album, A Better Tomorrow, sold just 60,000 copies, so something new had to be done to spark interest in a group that has spent 20-plus years in the hip-hop industry.
Some fans were none to happy about this one-off release, with some even taking to Kickstarter to try to become the highest bidder. That campaign only raised $15,000 though.
For the rest of the article please go here you’ll be amazed at what Wu got for the album and the status of its owner.
