There's a lot of money being tossed around with Wu-Tang Clan's music right now. Last week, RZA stated that he's set to lose $500,000 on Wu-Tang's latest album A Better Tomorrow. Today, Highsnobiety uncovered that Wu-Tang's infamous Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album—you know, the one (meaning that there's only going to be one hard copy) that the Wu has been planning on selling for millions of dollars—has been allegedly sold to *drum roll please* Skrillex.
Cilvaringz stated via email, that Skrillex hasn't bought anything. It was just a bit of forum banter:
"Bro that was a joke, the album is not sold to Skrillex. It's only in his new video for the song "Fuck That." I would assume the sale of the album would be a grand official announcement, not a simple "yup" joking around with forum members we've been talking to for years."While Skrillex hasn't bought A Better Tomorrow, the box in his music video for "Fuck That" is indeed an actual copy of the album. Good on Skrillex for not testing the age-old "you break it, you buy it" sales policy.
