Ah good, I thought they were gonna keep it in an evidence locker or something

I thought they were going to put it in the reinforced underground vault where they keep the Declaration of Independence, the secret formula for Coca Cola, and the real Mona Lisa.

Nah I think they sold it to pay for part of what he owed in fines. The people who bought it I think are trying to figure out a way to let people listen to it without breaching the contract stipulations that RZA put on it when it was first sold.

Easy. Get it "stolen". They release it to the internet.

Nah they’re a DAO, they’re thinking about putting it out as an NFT to get around legal rights, splitting the album ownership into a million pieces so you can “own it” thereby listen to it
