The Wu-Tang Clan is dropping a new album this year, and their first single has us really excited for what’s in store. According to the New York Times, the group invested their own money to put the album together, and producer RZA claims he’ll be losing 500K from funding the project.
“Everything. And I won’t recoup. I’m already overbudget. Maybe I’ll net out a half-million-dollar loss. I invested in the album. Look, if I never did anything again in music, it wouldn’t affect my life materially. I live a very satisfying life. Not because I’ve made a few dollars, but because I have a wife who loves me and children who wait for me to come home. And that is beautiful. I think that’s the American dream: to be at peace at home.”
RZA is expecting to lose 500K from investing in the new Wu-Tang Clan album — but he isn’t mad at all.
