Several million dollar offers...
In an interview with Billboard, RZA revealed that the Wu Tang Clan were offered $5 million for their next album The Wu - Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which is being limited to only a single copy. Here are highlights:
On the offers they've received: "Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday. I've been getting a lot of emails: some from people I know, some from people I don't know, and they're also emailing other members of my organization."
On the highest offer: "So far, $5 million is the biggest number. 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."
On the purpose of the album: "The main theme is music being accepted and respected as art and being treated as such. If something is rare, it's rare. You cannot get another."
