If you are looking for the new Wu-Tang Clan album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, you will have a hard time finding it. This is because an unidentified person bought the only copy for millions of dollars. According to NBC News, the unidentified person who did buy the only copy in existence cannot resell it for 88 years.

The copy of the Wu-Tang Clan album was sold in America at an auction. It wasn’t just an album that was sold for this price since the album came included inside a hand carved box that comes with a 174 page leather-bound manuscript that is printed on gilded Fedrigoni Marina parchment.

Guess it being leather-bound and printed with this parchment makes it extra special to be worth an undisclosed amount of in the millions.

Robert Fitzgerald, also known as Bobby Digital, released a statement that said, “The Wu-Tang Clan have always been driven by innovation, and this marks another moment in musical history. From the beginning, we hoped that this concept would inspire debate and new ways of seeing creativity.”

Paddle8 reported that the buyer of the only copy of the album can do whatever he or she wants with it but they cannot “commercialize it for 88 years.” They are not being identified because imagine all of the millions of Wu-Tang Clan fans bothering them to listen to the album.

What kind of life would that be for this person?

Although Paddle8, the auction house that sold the only copy, would not report what the album was sold for, they did say that the amount the person paid for it surpassed the $306,000 spent on the only album in existence from The Quarrymen which was the band that would later become The Beatles.

What do you think about this? Do you think the person has the right to not be identified to the public? If they were identified, they wouldn't live a very free life after this because the many Wu-Tang Clan fans would be knocking on their door bothering them constantly wanting to listen to the album.
