Preview Wu-Tang Clan’s $5M Album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin

Wu-Tang Clan - Once Upon A Time In Shaolin

As previously reported, the members of the Wu-Tang Clan have spent years working in secret on a new album called The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. There’s only one copy of the album, currently being kept in a Moroccan vault, and the Wu expect to sell it for millions. (RZA claims he’s already gotten a credible $5 million offer.) Recently, Forbes sent the reporter Zack O’Malley Greenburg to Marrakesh to meet Cilvaringz, the Moroccan-based Wu affiliate who put the album together, and to look at the actual physical artifact. He also got to hear a clip of the music, and we get to hear it, too, around the 9:15 mark of the 14-minute video. All the video includes is a single Ghostface verse from an unnamed track, but it sounds pretty good? I guess? I don’t anticipate paying $5 million for it, though. (Richard Branson is in there, too, calling the whole thing “a really fun idea.”) Check it out here.

UPDATE: Rolling Stone reports that Cher appears on two songs.
