Wu-Tang Clan Fan Compares Destruction Of "The Wu - Once Upon A Time In Shaolin" To Christ's Crucifixion

The Wu-Tang Clan fan hoping to destroy the lone copy of "The Wu - Once Upon A Time In Shaolin" calls the group "self-righteous."

Following the announcement that Wu-Tang Clan will only release one of copy of their The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album, a handful of dedicated Wu-Tang Clan fans have tried their luck at getting their hands on the lone copy of the group’s album via fundraising campaigns.

While those fans hope to share the project with the masses, one fan in particular plans on destroying The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin in an "artistic and grandiose manner" if he were to win the auction for the album.

That particular Wu-Tang fan, Chris Everhart, recently spoke to Noisey about the Kickstarter campaign he created to raise funds to bid on The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. When asked how he plans on destroying the album if he gets a chance, Everhart says he may liquefy the album or even return it to the Earth.

“This is a work in progress,” Everhart said. “Unfortunately, at this time the answer to this question is, ‘it depends.’ Suppose that the purchase of the album takes my full money goal. That leaves little for my performance piece. If I have some left to tool around with, it will have some more gusto to say the least. To throw you a bone here, though, I am currently considering liquefaction and/or returning the work to the earth. There will be no five second bra burning here.”

Later in the interview, Everhart compared his planned destruction of the album to significant events in religious history.

“The Crucifixion of Christ, or maybe the flight of Muhammad,” he said, when asked what rituals he would compare the destruction of the album to. “I don't know much about the Five-Percent Nation, but I know that the Wu is into that. So maybe I will respectfully mirror one of their traditions.”

Everhart also labeled those in Wu-Tang "self-righteous" for their decision to auction off one copy of The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for millions, and also called RZA blasphemous.

“I interpret this move by the Wu-Tang as ‘self-righteous’ on multiple levels,” he said. “On one level, the sense of self-importance that their work of art is worth this price tag is egotistical to the core. Sadly, this will be confirmed if someone actually pays a multi-million dollar sum in order to purchase it. This remains to be seen. RZA has compared this work to that of Mozart. WTF WTC?! This is blasphemy coming from a musician.”

Everhart’s Kickstarter campaign includes a goal of $6 million to be reached before July 28. So far, he's raised a little over $10,000.

    The person or group who purchases the album then has the right to re-distribute it if they'd like. It's not like there is only going to be one album and none of us get to hear it.

    I also thought this "1 copy" idea was totally stupid. What if the album is like.....not good? Does that person who wasted millions of dollars on a trash LP get a refund? I once like Bobby digital and the wu tang clan. But it seems Raekwon is and was always right on this one, RZA is a pompous asshole.

    I guess you could compare Cilvaringz to Mozart....pretty sure Rza was talking about himself though

  • ...

    This dude is delusional and corny. As a real Wu Tang fan, I think this secret album is good for Hip Hop and for Wu Tang.

    Well, wu tang clan actually exist. Christ? it's just about real as Santa clause.

  • Idea

    Sell only 20,000 (to signify 20 years in the game) of hard copies at $1,000 each on a pre-order basis. Then release the album to only paid consumers after a few months to avoid illegal copying.

    It's like a drug addict selling their momma for crack. Man, these niggas delusional on both sides SMH


    Wu Tang Fan? destroying the one album every Wu fan in the world wants? If he crucifies the album, niggas will hang him to a cross for real

    • dfgd

      obviously they were never gonna reach the target but the fan who created the petition stated he would leak it first ya big dummy

      I'm a lifelong Wu fan and I agree with what he's doing. These niggas need to be brought back down to Earth, especially the Rza. Self-rigteous is exactly what they are. Acting like they're above having to show and prove, which is what Hip-Hop has always been about. I don't care if it's Krs-One or Lil' Flappy, you have to put out dope material to keep your title, especially when you have the fanbase the Wu has, which has been the most loyal and diverse fanbase in Hip-Hop history. I mean, let's remember, this is an album not even produced by Wu-Tang producers, and not even with the Clan in the same studio together, and these niggas are trying to sell it for millions of dollars bruh. Don't lose sight of how fuckin' absurd that is. Peace.

    It's supply and demand concept. If there is little supply, the demand will go up. The fact that people are trying to pull their money together shows it's sort of working.
