The FBI Just Arrested Martin Shkreli

By HHL Editors

Bobby Shmurda can't catch a break.

The day after we learned that controversial pharma douche and Wu Tang album owner Martin Shkreli planned on bailing out Shmurda, he was arrested on securities fraud charges.

The FBI busted into Shkreli's New York home this morning and took him away. According To Bloomberg Business, “[Shkreli] is alleged to have made secret payoffs and set up sham consulting arrangements." His lawyer, Evan Greebel, was also arrested.

Shkreli burst into the public consciousness earlier this year by buying the drug Daraprim, which is used in AIDS and cancer treatment, and raising the price from $13.50 to $750.

His story became a Hip Hop one when he bought the mysterious Wu Tang album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin at auction for $2 million.

In a recent interview, Shkreli expressed interest in recording his own rap album, possibly with the help of Shmurda.

Maybe they can get started on that if they run into each other in Rikers.
