RZA responds to artist Jason Koza’s copyright infringement claims of his artwork being featured in the one-liner notes of Wu-Tang Clan’s album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.

The Wu-Tang Clan leader native tells TMZ that they didn’t sell the book containing the artwork to Shkreli but it was given to him as a thank you for purchasing the $2 million dollar project.

“He was given some gifts,” the rapper says. “I think he had a book as a gift. A book of lyrics. A pair of speakers and a few other things as a gift from the people who put together the gift. But the book is not part of the album.”
