    Earlier this week, it was revealed that Wu-Tang Clan's secret one-copy album "Once Upon a Time In Shaolin" may see a commercial release 88 years from now.

    "We felt that retail commercialization and mass replication would dilute the status of the album as a one-off work of art and compromise the integrity of our statement."




    "We thought long and hard about whether to defy art world conventions and transfer all rights to public release to the buyer," said album producer Cilvaringz.

    "But we genuinely felt that a swift public release after such a radical concept would neutralize the statement we are making. So we decided that the right to release the album would be transferred only after 88 years have passed."

    It seems like Wu-Tang member Method Man didn't know about the 88-year clause because he took to Twitter to say, "F**k that album."

    Method Man's outburst has led the Wu-Tang Clan to release an official statement about the release.

    Only one single copy of Once Upon A Time In Shaolin was ever to be made. This has been the case since the very first announcement. A commercial release was never planned. The right to commercialize it, meaning the right to sell it en mass to the public in any form is not allowed until 88 years from now. If the public rights were handed over now, then this would be a record deal like any other. Not the sale of a single copy. It can be exhibited publically and it can be given away for free. But it cannot be commercialized as a conventional album release until 2013. Even then, it will be the owner's decision to release it or keep it as a single unit, not the Wu-Tang.
