No, and no they shouldn’t have. It would make more sense in if they made something like 10 or 50 copies. The physical versions would still be incredibly rare, but more than just one part of the world can lay claim to it. Wu-Tang is global. Only one physical copy is such an extreme, but they clearly thought it was the best method to get the news out that they will only be selling their new album online. Also through the system of supply and demand they want to turn this album into an expensive one of a kind work of art, similar to a painting. Which in the end is still kinda dumb. I like my vinyls.
Hopefully 2014 is going to be the Year of the Wu. We should be getting:
Wu-Tang Clan - A Better Tomorrow
Method Man - Crystal Meth (AND the Meth Lab mixtape)
GZA - Dark Matter
Inspectah Deck (+ 7L & Esoteric) - Czarface 2
Raekwon - Fly International Luxurious Art
Portlandia - Crash Course In Hip-Hop History
This shit’s too funny. Probably my favorite scene from Portlandia.

This is Torri and she’s the newest admin for the Hip-Hop Fights Back Facebook group. She’s a well researched hip-hop head with a passion for music, and her favorites include Snowgoons, Wu-Tang (Method Man the most), N.W.A, RA The Rugged Man, MC Lyte, Guru, The Roots, and Celph Titled just to name a few.
Scientific studies have shown that women wearing Wu-Tang attire look 10x hotter than they do in normal clothes.
