The RZA recently announced the Wu has been secretly recording an album for years and that when it is released, there will only be copy available that will start at a multimillion dollar price tag. Comparing it to a piece of art (maybe a Monet?), RZA calls owning this album will be like “having the scepter of an Egyptian king.”
The album, which is accompanied by an exclusive listening party and tour, comes in a ornate container designed by Moroccan artist Yahya, who is often commissioned by royal families, princes from Dubai and people of that nature. Oh, you fancy huh?
A pretty revolutionary concept for an equally revolutionary group, it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Though we can’t see a single individual purchasing this, we do see this being included in a museum or by a larger institution. Only time will tell.
For the rest of us who doesn’t have an M to drop on an album, the WU will be releasing their 20th anniversary album, A Better Tomorrow, for regular retail prices. Phew.
Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Wu in style with these new Wu Tang x HUF collectors items.
