The rap group took five years to complete the 31-track disc and decided to make only one copy, which is set to fetch millions when it is sold off, but a copyright clause will prevent the new owner from releasing the music publicly for 88 years.

Wu-Tang rapper Method Man previously expressed his outrage over the loophole, insisting fans have a right to hear the tracks, and Raekwon has now joined him by voicing his disappointment over the drama.

He tells, "S**t, 88 years is a long f**king time... That's a long time for people to be able to hear it. That means we won't be around. What the f**k do you want me to say? I don't know what to say. I think at some point people do need to be able to hear it but you got to remember the concept of it was, whatever it was, whoever buys it, it's yours."

The album will be sold online via auction house paddle8.
