Wu-Tang Clan Secret Album to Cost Over $1 Million

Pretty big fan of Wu-Tang Clan?  Well, to prove it you’re going to need to cough up possibly millions of dollars for their next album.  “The Wu – Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” is a secret album that consists of 31 new tracks from the almighty Wu-Tang.  There will only be one copy in existence and it is kept in a hand-carved nickel-silver box.  I’m going to guess that in this day & age the music will eventually hit the worldwide interwebz, but until then, this has got to be one of the rarest pieces in music history.
