    Good to see U-God having an ad on the forum.

    Is this a OUATIS related remark? If you think about it ... yes.

    Wu "ontology" discussions are always tedious and boring, but in this case it's simply absurd to discuss who's album it is for the simple fact that until it is "issued" (for people to buy), it is not an album at all! For all intents and purposes, it is about as real as The Cure, The Abbott and the Drunk Monk, Swift & Changeable or any Shaka Amazulu project. But no doubt it's a hell of a story! And as far as that goes it has surely delivered (and I daresay even beyond the wildest dreams of Ringz himself)! And thus, whether you like it or not, it has been irrevocably added to the Wu-Tang saga. And regardless of whether you think him an upstart, a wanna"bee", a snake, a liar or just a bit of a prick, so has Ringz!

    Peace.
    it was available to buy and someone has bought it.

    I don't want to see you hurt over this shit, if that was addressed to me. But it's the Feds bro. Share of this, share of that. If they find a buyer they could PROBABLY set whatever terms they choose.

    But what do I know?

    If it somehow leaks would you sue the Federal Government if they were in possession at the time? Or be like, well mission accomplished.. Would you be happy or disappointed by the leak?

    Is the goal to have the music never available to the general public?

    I'm honestly just curious, Peace

    I cant address your legal questions re: government at the advice of legal council. A leak however is not in anyone's benefit. As we've always said, the value of this album hinges on exclusivity. Keep it hidden and it retains value, leak it and it loses not only its intrinsic value but also it's public appeal value. If this thing had leaked, nobody would be talking about it right now. But because it's played out the way it did, this thing keeps making headlines, major ones. Remember, on March 26th this will the fourth year since its initial announcement. What album has been talked about this much? What album has continued to trend this many times on social media? For me personally, that's an incredible achievement for something I conceptualized. To see it being talked about by mass media globally, make front page CNN twice, being tweeted about by the FBI, by the House Of Representatives, being discussed by Congress and now seized by the US Federal Government... I'm kinda anxious to see how much further this tale will stretch... So from that aspect I wouldnt want to see it leaked. I like seeing how far this one concept can stretch, for pure egotistical reasons sure. Mystery is everything.

    And lastly, someone here said that it didnt matter how good the album was, if leaked it would always be a disappointment simply because of how much this has been played up. You'd always be like "hm ok, is this what all the hype is about?".. And I couldn't agree more.. For the sake of its legendary status, the best thing for this album would be disappearance or destruction. Spirituality outlives physicality.

    According to Mr. Bozorgmehr, when Mr. Shkreli was arrested he even offered the album back to the Wu-Tang Clan. But the deal fell apart in negotiations because, Mr. Bozorgmehr said, “No one trusted Martin.
    hmmmmm

    what do you mean "his share" in the album. did shkreli not own the entire album? Did he actually just pay for the one copy but not acutally obtain rights to the music in anyway? If so, that means you still own the rights? Would the album possibly revert back to you?
