Hip-hop fans can purchase an NFT of the Wu-Tang Clan album for just $1

The infamous Wu-Tang Clan album that some have not even heard, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, which was previously owned by disgraced “pharma bro,” Martin Shkreli, has suddenly resurfaced. Now, fans of the Staten Island group can hear the album by purchasing an NFT (non-fungible token) of the sought-after project.

When the project was initially bought, there was an alleged contract that restricted the album from being released to the public for 88 years. Because of the purchase price, it was billed as the world’s most expensive album.

So fans can access the album for $1 and hear a five-minute sampler. They stated that cryptocurrency is not required to purchase the NFT.

The world’s most expensive album is available for $1.

“Mass replication has fundamentally altered our perception of recorded music,” RZA and producer Cilvaringz said in a press release. “The shift to digital universality and the disappearance of physical media have disrupted our emotional bond with music as an artwork and a personal treasure.”

Proceeds from the NFT sales will go to the Wu-Tang Clan and Cilvaringz, who, along with RZA, produced the album.
