Somebody’s Already Willing To Pay A Few Million For That One Wu-Tang Clan Album

Welp, that didn’t take long. the Wu-Tang Clan’s once-in-a-lifetime album, The Wu: Once Upon A Time In Shaolin is getting some serious bids. Per Billboard:

“The group’s RZA, who masterminded the project with producer/Wu-Tang extended family member Tarik “Cilvaringz” Azzougarh, told Billboard that their goal got closer to reality this week.

“‘Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday…’

“‘So far, $5 million is the biggest number,’ he continued. ‘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.'”

I think it was Gotty who pointed this out via email: assuming the cash (and it’ll be interesting to see how the industry tries to outbid itself; if the price goes above $10 million, I’ll be pleasantly surprised) gets rationed out evenly, that’s a pretty serious come up for the half of the Clan that isn’t doing too well. RZA, Method Man, Raekwon and Ghostface aren’t hurting for anything, but the rest? A little cash probably wouldn’t hurt their present situations one bit.

We all want Cappadonna and U-God to eat. We really do.
