The mysterious, one-of-one album from the Wu-Tang Clan, called Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, has been sold for over $5 million.

While an exact price was not given, the one-of-a-kind album by the legendary group was auctioned off by Paddle8, said reports.

Produced by RZA and Cilvaringz in Marrakech, Morocco, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin is comprised of new material, never previously released, which was recorded by Wu-Tang members over a six-year period.

The 31-track double LP is packaged in a hand-carved nickel silver box designed by British-Moroccan artist Yahya, and comes with a leather-bound book filled with the album’s lyrics, as well as each song’s respective meaning, a gold-leafed certificate of authenticity and a pair of PMC MB2-XBD speakers, worth over $55,000.
