Wu-Tang’s Method Man & Ghostface Killah Are ‘Workin on Getting That Album Back From the Feds’
You know that infamous Wu-Tang record, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, that never saw the light of day? Well, Ghostface Killah and Method Man really want it back. So much so, they posed with former FBI director James Comey yesterday.
Of course, the story behind the Wu record is long and dramatic, and hit another peak last month with notorious "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli was sentenced to seven years in prison for various securities-fraud-related charges. Shkreli's assets were seized (worth $7.3 million) and part of those assets included Wu-Tang's album, which he reportedly purchased for $2 million two years ago.
Officials are prepping to sell the goods at an auction. But heres' the kicker—Wu-Tang never got their album back. And yes, they want it for obvious reasons. The legendary group spent more than six years recording the 31-track double album.
Yesterday, things hit another level when Method Man and Ghostface posed with Comey, jokingly saying they were, "Workin on getting that album back from the feds."
The unlikely trio ran into each other at CBS studios. Comey is promoting his new book A Higher Loyalty and was on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, which Ghost and Meth were on as well, appearing with Colbert in a special segment.
At any rate, the plot thickens, even if it is playfully. Check the IG post below.
