Report: Bill Murray Can Legally Steal the New Wu-Tang Album

By Hayden Wright

When news broke that pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli exclusively bought Wu-Tang Clan‘s new album for $2 million, you might have thought: “This is preposterous.” If a Twitter screenshot is to be believed, the deal gets even weirder. Call it a “Bill Murray clause.”

According to Twitter user Rob Wesley, the Clan’s contract stipulates the exclusive sale will be honored for 88 years. However, during that period, the Clan or its special deputy may try to steal the property back from the buyer:

“Said heist or caper can only be undertaken by currently active members of the Wu-Tang Clan and/or actor Bill Murray, with no legal repercussions,” the screenshot states.

It’s impossible to confirm the veracity of this document, but these are shifting sands. So why couldn’t this be true? Bill Murray worked with Wu-Tang leader RZA in the 2003 Jim Jarmusch film Coffee and Cigarettes.

If the clause is real, here’s to hoping RZA films the caper.
