Collection of OUTIS Snippets [VIDEO/AUDIO]

Someone took it upon him- or herself to bless the masses with this collection of snippets from the infamous album. As you can hear, the audio is not the best of quality. This may in fact hurt more to the ears and legacy of the album itself, than do it good. Who wants to hear 64kpbs audio in 2017? It is almost like this album was sponsored by RealPlayer.

Anyway, enjoy these snippets. This may well be the only thing you may ever hear from the album of the people you supported through all these years.

[removed] OUATIS Ends Up As eBay Auction

Da Saga Continues, or so someone once said half way through the 90’s referring to the second Wu-Tang Clan album that was about to come through. It was one of the many working titles that was thrown into the ether by Clan members. No it seems, the saga of the sophomore Cilvaringz album that has been continually referred to as a Clan album while besides The RZA none of the actual Clan members has heard the album, knows no end.

In a move that that propably surprised many, Shkreli has seen taken a new approach to the revaluation of art as an artform. As of now you can publicly place a bid on the much sought after album on eBay. At the moment of writing, the current bid is US $1,000,200.00. A quite interesting turn of events since the orginal bidding started at US $ 100,000.00. The auction will be open untill 16th of september, if nothing happens in between.

Personally, I would have no problem with him breaking the album. The whole project has been nothing but a prentitious marketing stunt [edit: lol] that only resulted in reclaiming an elite place for art outside of the hands of everybody. A place the internet had just taken it from, taken it from the Labels as some would say. That is also why this in no way can really reflect the legacy of Wu-Tang. Since it is nothing but money & publicity.
You want to revalue art? Bring out an actual masterpiece that the masses can listen to for years on end. One that builds up to a supreme climax that everybody will follow and keep listening too. But do not base it upon a gimmick.

edit: not my best writing


Wu-Wear is being resurrected

Wu-Wear is coming back. And they are promising to make it fresh. I do wonder what that means though. Because at this point, nothing has been really shown apart from a three images. In the mean time, enjoy this one.

(Maybe they should just re-issue the line they had in the video.)

Wu-Tang Clan’s Robert Diggs (RZA) and Oliver Grant (Power) tell Billboard they’re bringing back the iconic hip hop clothing line in partnership with Live Nation’s Merchandise division.

New Clan Album Coming Titled Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues

October the 13th 2017 will bless us with another Wu-tang Clan album. The title of the album is Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues. (Not to be confused with Puffy’s 2001 release.) The album is headed by DJ Allah Mathematics with RZA on the executive duties.

For years, Math has had the idea of putting together a body of music using modern and legendary equipment such as ASR10 with vocal performances by Wu-Tang Clan members and other prominent MCs. With The Saga Continues he’s created a masterpiece. We at 36 Chambers ALC are honored to work with Mathematics and Wu-Tang Clan to put out a great piece of art.

Another Excerpt About OUATIS

Last month Wired also dropped an article on the sale of the Once Upon A Time In Shaolin Album. They gave it the interesting title Remember When Martin Shkreli Bought That Single-Copy Wu-Tang Clan Album? Almost as if the album was forgotten about after the fact. Mostly due to the antics of Shkreli, who opened up about the pharamaceutical business like no other before him. And gave us a much more interesting view in how all these companies know how to rip off patients, and hide from it. He wasn’t having any of the latter. Well Wired also published an excerpt of the book, with the most interesting tid bit of sale ever:

Mindful of the fact that only two people in the world had heard the whole thing, we couldn’t risk the buyer listening to the full two hours, then saying no thanks. So we hammered out a skipping scenario where he could listen to ten seconds in the beginning, middle, and end of each track to make sure the audio was all on there.

Did anybody say  used car sales tactics?

The Bill Murray Clause Was False

Remember when the internet lost its mind over something in the contract of Once Upon A Time IN Shaolin with Bill Murray. Like so often, nobody actually fact checked it. And thus another myth was born. This was off course not helped by the silence from the party selling it.

Some of these things might be cleared by the release of a new book. This will detail the whole business deal and how fans got srewed out of hearing the music they love, adored and supported to through the trials & tribulations of the Wu-Tang. Reading the excerpt from the book, it looks like this will be a quick cash grab, at the long tail of the interest in the book. While Shkreli is still in the news. But other than a few interesting facts, be prepared to be dissappointed on a literay plane. Just like this album let the fans down.

…an interested observer online tweeted a (false) quote from a (falsified) contract that claimed to show the (entirely bogus) clause that allowed Wu-Tang Clan and/or Bill Murray — a real-life acquaintance of RZA’s — to steal the album back. As sometimes happens with false tweets about bogus clauses in falsified contracts, the media picked up the story and reported it as if it were real. “I don’t think Bill was ever even aware of the album,” says Bozorgmehr.

Cyrus Bozorgmehr’s new book, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, purports to tell the untold tale of the whole strange episode.

The Sewer Goblet: The Wu-Tang Clan and the Wu-Tang Baby [Video Game]

Picked this one up on Kotaku yesterday. I’ve been wanting to do a Wu-Tang Clan RPG for some time now. But looks like some people beat me to the punch. Haven’t checked it out yet because my connection died.

The story goes like…

It was an ordinary day at the Wu-Tang mansion. Ghostface and Raekwon tossed around a football in the backyard while Ol’ Dirty Bastard, RZA, and the rest of the gang watched the game inside. What nobody expected was the knock at the door that would forever change their lives. Much to their surprise, a tiny but majestic baby with a mysterious pendant was on their doorstep and with nowhere else to go and no sign of who the baby belonged to, the Wu-Tang Clan had no choice but to adopt the tot and nickname him the Wu-Tang Baby. Little did they know, this baby was much sought after by an eldritch wizard living in the sewers for his pendant, and when the baby was kidnapped by the Cheese Panda XD, a henchman of the wizard, the Wu-Tang Clan was tasked with finding the wizard’s lair in the sewers and rescuing the kidnapped baby from his evil clutches in…

Sounds like fun doesn’t it. Even more fun then my Golden Arms Xtreme Xmas Shooter. But, before you all get your hopes up about a quality Wu stamp product. This was not exactly meant to get out there.

OK this has been posted on Kotaku now and I want to make it clear that this was never really meant to get out. This was a stupid thing we did for a two week contest, and I think for a game made in two weeks it is very good, but if you’re looking for something that will compare to Barkley, which took us a year to make, then you’ll be disappointed! We didn’t really want this exposure because the cheese panda shit is retarded and we would have never put that in the game if it weren’t a requirement for the contest. Now we’re almost sort of obligated to keep working on it because it’s really not that great right now. But don’t forget: T.O.G. ain’t nuthin’ to fuck wit.

Wait no longer
