(Photo) Wu-Tang Clan Fan Sues Martin Shkreli And RZA For Art Work Sold With “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin”

Die hard Wu-Tang Clan fan Jason Koza has slammed Martin Shkreli and RZA with a lawsuit after his artwork landed in the $2 million one-of-a-kind album, “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.” Koza claims he entered nine of his hand drawn portraits the Wu-Tang members to be posted on a site called Wu Disciples. He was delighted when Wu-Tang’s producer Cilvaringz contacted him back in 2014 to say he was working on the “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” record. Koza claims following that conversation he never heard from anyone in Wu-Tang’s camp again, but was disturbed to find out that the rare album included a leather-bound book with copies of his drawings. Following the sale of the album, where Martin Shkreli picked it up for $2 million, three of his original drawings wound up in a January article of Vice. Koza feels like he’s been jerked around and now is looking for Shkreli, RZA and Cilvaringz to pay up. Click the gallery for photos

RZA Reveals The ODB Biopic Is “In Motion”

Thanks to the success of Straight Outta Compton, the doors have opened for a lot of other artists’ stories to be told on the big screen, and one of those stories is that of none other than Ol’ Dirty Bastard. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the late rapper’s cousin and fellow Wu-Tang Clan member RZA revealed that an ODB biopic is finally “in motion.” “I think it’s a great idea, and there has been talk about it,” RZA told the mag. “There are a few wheels in motion with one done by our first cousin Rayshawn. He was the young guy there watching everything that happened. Him and ODB’s wife have been talking and he has a pretty interesting script. I just saw a 12-minute teaser that he shot about a year ago and it felt pretty fucking cool. I watched it and was like, ‘Wow, you may have something here.’ He has the best thing that I’ve seen so far.”

RZA Shares His Thoughts On Police Brutality

With all that has been going on, black people are no longer holding back their thoughts regarding police brutality.

RZA has just went on Twitter to express his thoughts on police brutality.

RZA Reveals His Feelings On Martin Shkreli’s Use Of The Wu-Tang Album

There is only one Once Upon a Time in Shaolin Wu-Tang Clan copy, and Martin Shkreli, a man that many hate, is the one that got dibs on the $2 million project. The thing is, Shkreli is currently in police custody following an arrest on federal fraud charges, which leaves many to wonder how the Clan members, RZA specifically, feels about the treatment of the once in a lifetime album. RZA sat down with Bloomberg Business to reveal his sentiments on events that led and followed the sale. “He did mention his love of hip-hop, and I mentioned to him the importance I think this record is,” RZA says about their first meeting in a clip of the Bloomberg segment, which will air tonight [Jan. 6]. “Not even 60 days later, he put in a strong offer.” Drop down bottom for more.

Wu-Tang’s 1-of-1 Million Dollar ‘Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’ Album Has Been Sold

Early last year, the Wu-Tang Clan announced that they’d be getting together for a new album, though this time, it’d be much different than any other project they’d worked on. The 31-song Once Upon A Time In Shaolin was revealed to be a one-of-one, and the only way you could hear it would be by forking over a million dollars…or waiting for 88 years. Welp, the option for the former is now gone, so you’ll have to wait the 88 years until its new owner is allowed to release it to the public. Though the buyer has not been revealed, they’ve been identified as a “private American collector,” and it’s said that they paid “millions” for the album. 31 brand new Wu songs and skits is not all they received, however.
