Last month, Martin Shkreli added Lil Wayne's oft delayed Carter V album to his collection.

He initially played coy with how he was able to do so. But he revealed more details of the purchase in an interview with DJ Akademiks.

“I do have what I believe to be a two-CD, authentic, Carter V final product mixed down,” Shkreli said . “Nobody knows what Tha Carter V is. If fact, nobody can say until Lil Wayne says, ‘This is Tha Carter V. He’s controlling it. If he says, ‘You know what? That two-CD thing that Martin has? I’m gonna add some stuff. I’m gonna take a track off and put in five more.’ If he says that’s Tha Carter V, then that’s Tha Carter V. It’s his call.”
Shkreli said he believes the person who sold him the double disc got it legally, and isn't affiliated with Wayne or Birdman.

He also said that the seller approached him.

"If you’ve been known to spend seven figures on music, I would contact that person first before anyone else,” Shkreli stated. “Who else would you go to? Who else is putting seven figures down for unreleased rap tracks?”
Shkreli says he doesn't think Birdman or Wayne can sue him over the sale, and added that a major streaming service has contacted him about album.
