Two of the most intriguing Hip Hop tales of the past year have just collided head on.
Pharma-douche Martin Shkreli - who pissed off the world once again by buying the rights to the mysterious Wu Tang album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin -- says he's working to bail out Bobby Shmurda.
He explains why in an interview with HipHopDX.
We’re actually in discussion to try to bail out Bobby Shmurda. Forget whether you think he’s guilty or not, the guy should not be sitting in jail right now. It’s insane. He’s from Brooklyn. I’m from Brooklyn. He deserves a fair trial. He deserves good lawyers. He doesn’t have good lawyers. His label is hanging him out to dry and so I have a conference call tomorrow morning with them (December 15). I’ll show up with $2 million bail money no fucking problem. He’s not going to flee the country. I'm not going to lose anything. I’m going to try to make that happen. That’s one thing I’m working on.Shkreli concedes he's not freeing Shmurda just out of the goodness of his heart.
"I’m a fan and I’m a business man,” he explains. "Look, the guy’s going to have to record for me if he comes out. I’ll just come out and say it… I’m not going to do this for free."In the interview, Shkreli also says he's a musician who would like to cut his own rap album.
Shmurda x Shkreli. You've been warned.
