Bone thugs-n-harmony are set to make a final album and the group has announced that it is slated to auction off one copy of the project for at least $1 million, according to TMZ.
Bone says the five original members of the group will embark on a worldwide tour in December before crafting this final effort.
In March, Wu-Tang Clan announced plans to sell one copy of The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin.
“We’re about to sell an album like nobody else sold it before,” RZA said at the time. “We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music. We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king.
“The idea that music is art has been something we advocated for years,” RZA added at the time. “And yet its doesn’t receive the same treatment as art in the sense of the value of what it is, especially nowadays when it’s been devalued and diminished to almost the point that it has to be given away for free.”
In April, RZA spoke with HipHopDX about the project.
“As far as the value of it, the value could go from wherever,” RZA said to DX. “It may be worth $20 million. It may be worth $100 million. Who knows? That’s the value that a person puts upon it. That’s what art is about. When you see a piece of art, somebody goes, ‘What is that? It’s just a painting of a woman.’ Yeah, but that painting of that woman is worth $100 million based on the person that appreciates it to his heart like that and based on how the world is gonna view it. That’s important to me.”
