Wu-Tang Clan's $2 Million Album Could Possibly Be Yours

Wu-Tang Clan's $2 Million Album Could Possibly Be Yours

It's now up to federal prosecutors and/or the U.S. Marshall's Office.

This Martin Shkreli/Wu-Tang Clan $2 million album thing is really never going to end, is it?

This time, perhaps good news is going to come from the saga as TMZ reports the Wu’s one-of-a-kind Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album could be seized from Shkreli after the feds indicted him for $65 million in securities fraud.

If seized, and if federal prosecutors find that any of the $65 million was used to purchase the album, they could immediately file a forfeiture action to seize it.

That’s not all though. Even if that money wasn’t what was used to make the purchase, U.S. Marshals could seize it if Shkreli is convicted and the judge orders restitution. The U.S. Marshals Office told TMZ it’s likely that they would target the album because of its high value and presumed ease of sale.

There is one sticking point, though. When RZA sold the album, it was famously non-transferable for 88 years. Whether that will still be honored is the question.
