Bone Thugs-n-harmony were considering selling their final group album for $1 million -- until they realized that $1 million isn't enough. Now, after some careful reconsideration and serious math, BTNH are looking for 10 times the price.
“A million dollars is not enough. So, we’ll make the product and we’ll try to get $10 million for it," the group's longtime manager Steve Lobel told HipHopDX. "There’s a lot of billionaires around the world that might just say, ‘You know what? I’m gonna do it just to do it.’ They have nothing else to do with their money. They just wanna be cool.”
The group was inspired by the Wu-Tang Clan's idea to manufacture and sell a single copy of their upcoming Once Upon a Time in Shaolin LP for $1 million. In July, Bone Thugs announced that they would reunite for a final world tour and one last album (E. 1999/Legends).
In April, Wu-Tang leader RZA told Billboard that his group has received bids as high as $5 million. “Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday,” he said. “I’ve been getting a lot of e-mails: some from people I know, some from people I don’t know, and they’re also e-mailing other members of my organization.”
