Only one copy to be printed of 128-minute opus from fabled hip-hop collective
Time Out staff
If you’ve been following the music wires of late, you might have heard about the Wu-Tang Clan’s ambitious – no, unprecedented – marketing stunt of minting just one copy of their new album, Upon A Time In Shaolin. It’s reported the only print of the 128-minute, 31-song opus is currently sitting in a Moroccan vault, and will tour art galleries before being auctioned to the highest bidder.
However, what few might realise is that the project might never have happened without Dubai-based rapper Eslam Jawaad (or Wissam Khodur for his day job) is reportedly the project’s co-executive producer and finance officer, alongside Clan associate Cilvaringz. Nice one.
