Martin Shkreli Plays Wu-Tang Album; We Learn How He Got 'Carter V'

By HHL Editors

Now that Martin Shkreli is a convicted felon, he's letting it all out.

During an interview right after he was found guilty of two counts of securities fraud and a single count of conspiracy, the pharma douche played some of the one-off Wu-Tang album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.

"$2 million to Wu-Tang. I got a mixtape in return, it was a wonderful investment. I view it as a donation. People might see that as splurging. I don’t think there are many people in the world who have patronized Hip Hop to the extent I have," Shkreli explained in the video.
Jump to the 48-minute mark to hear him play about ten minutes of the album.

In addition to owning Once Upon A Time in Shaolin, Shkreli has a copy of the much delayed Lil Wayne album Carter V.

A different journalist Shkreli has spoken to, White House correspondent Alex Pfeiffer, recently revealed how Shkreli came to purchase the album on the black market.
