The Martin Shkreli and Wu-Tang Clan drama has taken another strange turn today, as the pharmaceutical billionaire recently told Vice some pretty shitty news. In the interview with Allie Conti, Shkreli weighed the thought of destroying the one-of-a-kind album altogether, or maybe placing it in a secluded place where fans would have to go on a spiritual quest to find it.
Shkreli, who paid $2 million for the album, has lived in the news since news broke of his purchase of the album, and he has since gone back and forth with both RZA and Ghostface Killah. Not only has Shkreli beefed with members of Wu-Tang, but he's also facing serious legal troubles after he was arrested for fraud by the federal government. The situation is so serious that the government could ultimately seize the album if they found out he used improper funds to purchase it from the group.
Though Shkreli played the album, which only a handful of people in the world have heard, during the interview with Conti, she said that she didn't really get to hear it because they were talking. "From what I heard, it was definitely better than their last album, although I wouldn't say it's worth $2 million necessarily," she said. "I really hope Shkreli decides to release it to the public rather than destroy it, which is something he's mulling over right now." You can read her full interview with Shkreli here.
