A rare album secretly recorded by the hip hop band Wu-Tang Clan is slated to be part of an exhibition at Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art (Mona). The most expensive record ever sold was designed to be a work of fine art.

The album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, was recorded in New York and produced in Marrakesh between 2006 and 2013. It includes the nine surviving members of the group, and features Cher and Game of Thrones actress Carice Van Houten. The CD is the only copy in existence.

The revolutionary hip hop band, which formed in Staten Island during the early 1990s, is known for their violent and sexually explicit lyrics that convey the trauma of African American experiences with levity. Believing online streaming and piracy has cheapened the value of music, Wu-Tang Clan decided to create an album as a unique commodity.

Once Upon a Time in Shaolin includes an ornate hand-carved nickel box and a leather-bound manuscript, complete with lyrics and a certificate of authenticity. Additionally, the record comes with the legal condition that the record’s 31 tracks cannot be released by the owner for 88 years.
