In the mid-ninties, Wu-Tang Clan exploded onto the music scene with their classic album Enter The 36 Chambers in 1993, and the next full member album “Wu-Tang Forever” in 1997. The Wu-Tang “Killer Bees” began to swarm pop culture on a whole. Many members enjoyed highly successful solo projects, movies, fashion lines, T.V. shows, video games, and much more. Fast forward and now they have unveiled their plans to release only one single copy of this secret album, the Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin.
The album is inside a container that was handcrafted by British-Moroccan artist Yahya for three months. Yahya’s works have been commissioned by royal families and business leaders around the world.

“We’re about to sell an album like nobody else sold it before,” says Robert “RZA” Diggs, the first Wu-Tang member to speak on record about Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, in an exclusive interview with FORBES. “We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music. We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king.”
“The idea that music is art has been something we advocated for years,” says RZA. “And yet its doesn’t receive the same treatment as art in the sense of the value of what it is, especially nowadays when it’s been devalued and diminished to almost the point that it has to be given away for free.”
