Alleged Snippets From Wu-Tang Clan’s “Once Upon A Time In Shaolin” Leak Online


(AllHipHop News) Martin Shkreli may be one of the most hated men in the world at the moment. Besides receiving widespread condemnation for raising the price of a life saving HIV drug over 5000%, the head of Turing Pharmaceuticals also became the #1 villain of Wu-Tang Clan fans when he reportedly bought the NYC collective’s one-of-a-kind, secret album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin.

Shkreli can now be seen on video saying, “Plans for the album? I don’t know. I’ll probably never even hear it. I just thought it would be funny to keep it from people.” But alleged cell phone recorded snippets from the project bought for a reported $2 million have leaked online.

Listeners can hear about 8 minutes of music supposedly from the RZA-led, Cilvaringz-produced album. Once Upon A Time In Shaolin was contractually required to be kept from commercial use for 88 years.

“After 88 years the copyright, which includes public and commercial rights, automatically transfers to the owner of the work,” said Cilvaringz earlier this year. “However, it will still be his or her choice at that [point] to release it or not release it.”

Wu devotees hoping the Clan (or actor Bill Murray) will be able to steal Shaolin back from Shkreli should not expect that heist to happen. Despite numerous news reports the two parties had the legal right to swipe the LP, the “Bill Murray Clause” turned out to be a hoax.

    88 years? they shouldve done 10 years max. wtf living will be alive then

    • Anthony Mason

      I dont think people will be listening to hip hop then. Do we still listen to ragtime music now?…..exactly…..

      • The Legendary Troll

        Hip Hop aint goin nowhere nigga. But aint nobody goin be listening to no old ass wu-tang

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        OVO= Off Vagina Only

      • Anthony Mason

        They do sound bummy somewhat but not all. Ghost is still that dude, RZA drops the heat on production end and RAE still is nice on features….

        Everyone else….is finished already basically. Method man sold out more than any of them dudes early on though. I think his account still has some Fred Durst runoff in it…. lol!

      • Casor_Greener

        Hip-Hop will be dead. People won’t be listening to a bunch of non-murderers claiming to be murderers while screamning “nigga” and “bitch” for 80 more years I can assure you

      • Anthony Mason

        Haha right???

    • Nana De Baus

      88 years it goes to their kids

      • The Legendary Troll

        And you know they kids not goin bump no wu-tang

  • Tyfromthechi

    Man rza bogus as hell we been waiting on wu to drop some hard classic shit for years and when they finally do he sell the album and we might never hear it this shit sound classic

    • Larry Sandwiches

      Guess you missed Better Tomorrow.

      • Tyfromthechi

        That shit was ass

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Guess youre not a Wu fan

      • Tyfromthechi

        I love the wu just not the last 3 albums

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Then you dont like Wu

      • Malik

        What does that even mean?
        He doesn’t like Wu b’cuz his critique of their album is not in good light.
        Uh? What part of the game is that?

      • Larry Sandwiches

        “USED” to like Wu is more appropriate.

        But yeah, i’d say if you like less than half the sh!t a group puts out, and if you only listen to Ghost and Chef, then i dont think you can necessarily claim Wu.

        “Yeah, most of their sh!t sucks, but i love em.”
        ^what part of the game is THAT?

  • Q.

    Well, we just got about $270,000 worth of free music. I guess we should be thankful. LOL

    • Larry Sandwiches

      ^comment of the f–kin day

  • Johnny Cage Jr.

    wu tang clan shouldve put this album out.NY Rappers stay losing

  • Casor_Greener

    Album was trash. No TRUE artist would hide their classic works from their world. This was just a publicity stunt by them silly ass Wu-Tang dudes

    • Live Well

      It was trash? How would you know?

      • Casor_Greener

        you really think them WU clowns would hide a classic?

      • Larry Sandwiches

        You obviously havnt been followin along….

      • Casor_Greener

        You’re right I havent. The whole concept is so ridiculous to me that I haven’t paid much attention beyond a few articles. It appears they sold a one copy album for 1-2M and it can’t be commercially exploited for 88 years. To me if they thought they had a classic, no way they would have sold out for $1-2M. Anyone thinking otherwsie is most likely getting bamboozled

      • Live Well

        Clowns? LOL I see where you at wit it.

  • THE.

    That douche who bought it should release it for free since he bought it from his ill gotten gains!! 8000% jeeeeez how is he not in federal prison ? It’s like he is taunting us by purchasing an album for 2mill.

  • El Dogga

    RZA got over on dude…..that album unfortunately would’ve never gone gold in the States…..maybe worldwide….this don’t even sound good.

    • Larry Sandwiches

      Thats because most wouldve just stole it.

      Sounds like you got the point of what RZA was tryin to do.

      • Tyfromthechi

        He knew it wouldn’t sell so he got his money up front u got to find ways to get paid off your music now days nobody selling millions anymore except a few people even jay z got his money up front from Android

      • Larry Sandwiches

        So given RZAs history, you don’t think his notion of it being a work of art had anything to do with it ?

      • El Dogga

        Oh yeah….people would’ve downloaded it and not copped it for real….selling it at 2 million makes sure their pockets laced and knowing RZA you know he took $500 k off top for the mixing and producing! Than taken his $187,500 cut as a rapper! lol

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Haha! That Wu-family turmoil is never ending!

      • El Dogga

        Ever! lol

  • Eric Moore

    I love the concept of the album solely being looked to as a work of art Rza nailed it, but I think the owner should have been a pure fan of the art of WU, not any cash cow that is the only knock I have with it.. dude said he brought it to make every 1 mad he has the only copy he should be stripped from the art just from that statement only..
