Creating albums is costly, and no-one else knows that more than Wu-Tang Clan's RZA.

Wu-Tang began production on their sixth studio album, A Better Tomorrow, in 2011. Since then, RZA has admitted that he has spent over $500,000 on costs associated with creating the album including studio time and other expenses from his own money. 

To make matters worst, RZA doesn't believe he's going to ever get the money back. He revealed to the New York Times that he has paid for everything, "I’m already over budget. Maybe I’ll net out a half-million-dollar loss."

Don't sweat. RZA says is doesn't bother him. He also discussed his thoughts on money, “Look, if I never did anything again in music, it wouldn’t affect my life materially. I live a very satisfying life. Not because I’ve made a few dollars, but because I have a wife who loves me and children who wait for me to come home. And that is beautiful. I think that’s the American dream: to be at peace at home.”

It's still possible that he could make some of the money back if he considers to accept the offer of a man willing to pay 5 million dollars for a single pressing of the album.
