With the fate of "Once Upon A Time In Shaolin" being in Jeff Sessions possession, RZA had a message to share.
The story of Wu-Tang Clan's one-of-one album, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin will go down as one of the most interesting stories in hip hop pertaining to the release of an album. Martin Shkreli was initially reported to have forfeited the album along with Lil Wayne's The Carter V as part of his sentencing and the album fate of the album would be in Jeff Sessions hands. While there's been other reports that claim that Shkreli never handed it over, RZA recently spoke about the situation and shared a message for Sessions.
RZA recently chopped it up with TimeOut about Kendrick Lamar's recent Pultizer win as well as Method Man and Ghostface Killah's recent appearance on Colbert. The two Wu-Tang members later posted a picture alongside former FBI Director James Comey and claimed they were "workin to get the album back from the feds." While RZA's previously attempted to buy the album back from Shkreli, he shared a message to The U.S. Department of Justice and Jeff Sessions specifically, if they are in possession of Once Upon A Time In Shaolin.
"If it’s in the hands of the Department of Justice, they need to do it justice." He said, "But… I’ll just say, Mr. Sessions, Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to fuck with. And I’ll leave it like that."
Regardless of who's in possession of the album, it's definitely something that needs to be released for the public.
