    The complete disrespect that Shkreli has for this album is awesome
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    Believe you me, it is not going to be an easy sale nor a possible release given the caveats in place.

    This seems to be in line with your original long term plan for OUATIS.

    Personally I'm still fine with not hearing the album at all (the one copy sale as an artistic + financial statement is what interested me most about OUATIS), but I know I am in the minority with this view.

    By the way I have no doubt the album sounds great, so me not needing to hear the album on a personal level has nothing to do with its undeniable musical quality.

    Q: Hi Martin, I thought that you signed an agreement with the Wu-Tang/RZA that you could not re-sell the CD and where the property goes back to them. Is that correct? Do you mind sending me the legal documents you signed when acquired the CD? Best Matt Sep-06-17

    A: The sale is legally allowed. The buyer may not commercialize the work for 86 further years. The buyer may sell the CD to another buyer, however. The buyer may also release the music for free or play it publicly for free. I believe a public performance for a fee is also allowed. Legal documents will be provided to serious bidders.

    So far, from the looks of it this is not a stunt and an actual sale seems very plausible. What happens to the album AFTER the sale is still up in the air, though.

    thank you for clearing that up

    if I put two and two together (and if I still believe what M80 said in that first attachment of mine above) I would assume this means M80 made RZA an offer on the album at a very early stage of it being on sale but then lost interest later on when it became clear there was no immediate financial profit to be made from buying the album, because of the non commercial distribution clause that was put in place. only after terms like those were made public the big spenders came out of the woodwork, 5 of them, the latest addition being Martin Shkreli.

    I wanna get this right cuz all of this stuff fascinates me.

    what he might've told him in private I dont know.. but it obviously wasn't taken serious... every offer rza received, or I received was always discussed between us all.. the very first real official offer was already being negotiated on behalf of us by Paddle8. There was one party that contacted RZA directly. The other four were through Paddle8, including Martin.
