Apparently a $5 million dollar offer (as reported by RZA) is not enough for the completed single-copy LP. Produced by Cilvaringz, Once Upon A Time in Shaolin will appear on the online auction platform Paddle8 later this month. At this point in time, Paddle8 has not announced any auction terms of date and the anticipation the long awaiting album featuring RZA, GZA, Raekwon, Method Man, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Ghostface Killah, as well as potentially Cappadonna and the late member, Ol’ Dirty Bastard only grows as the days pass by.
“We are honored that the Wu-Tang Clan has selected Paddle8 as the partner for the extraordinary sale of their one-of-a-kind album,” Paddle8 co-founder Alexander Gilkes explained to The New York Observer here.
As of right now, the album is real, is close to being released, and is locked in a silver case in Marrakech, Morocco.
