On Tuesday, Ghostface shared a photo of himself and Method Man posing with the former FBI director, smiling ear to ear. The rapper captioned the Instagram post: “Me and my brother […] Workin on getting that album back from the feds.”
In a 2016 interview with Vice, Shkreli said he was considering destroying the project or “installing it in some remote place so that people have to make a spiritual quest to listen.” Thankfully, he didn't get the chance to do either.
Following his seven-year prison sentence for securities fraud last month, Shkreli was ordered to hand over more than $7.3 million in assets, including a Picasso painting, a share in Vyera Pharmaceuticals, his copy of Lil Wayne’s yet-to-be-released Tha Carter V, as well as Once Upon a Time In Shaolin. All of these assets are reportedly in the hands of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
