“The Wu Tang album captures people’s imaginations, it’s a very important piece of pop culture and it’s an incredible work of art,” Jarrod Rawlins, director of curatorial affairs at MONA, said at a briefing.

“The listening events have, all of the free allocated tickets are done, there’s 5000 people still on the waiting list,” said Rawlins, adding that the museum cannot open up any more slots.

The album, with just one physical copy in the world, was bought by the convicted pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli in 2015 for $2 million.

Shkreli gave it up to partially satisfy a $7.4 million forfeiture order after his 2017 conviction for defrauding hedge fund investors and scheming to defraud investors in a drugmaker.

It is now owned by non-fungible token collectors PleasrDAO who purchased the album for $4 million from the U.S. government. PleasrDao is also suing Shkreli for making copies of the album and releasing the music to the public.
