Hoarding the only copy of unreleased Wu Tang clan albums?


u/righttoplay Jan 14 '22

It was auctioned off and now belongs to the PleasrDAO group

This is the kind of positive news I was looking for!

Edit: seems like the dudes that bought it are cut from the same cloth. Womp womp.


u/StrangeShark408 Jan 15 '22

It's only positive if these dipshit NFT bros release it for the public. Anything short of that, fuck em.


u/RamenJunkie Jan 15 '22

They will release it in 5 second snippets as NFTs for $50,000 each and make bank.

Cool, a digital pirate would splice those together for the normal people who want to hear the album and some NFT jackasses will lose money.

The original sale has clauses preventing monetization for, was it about 100 years.


u/heyuwittheprettyface Jan 15 '22

TBH if they try to turn a profit by making it into something like the drawn NFTs where anyone can download the content without being the ‘owner’, I would be 100% be down with that.


u/OffNos Jan 15 '22

Nah they're a shitty NFT group looking to profit off it. It went from one shithead owning it to some different shitheads owning it.
