(AllHipHop News) Earlier today (Jan. 22), while in downtown Los Angeles, Ghostface Killah explained his thoughts on Martin Shkreli purchasing the Wu-Tang Clan’s latest release, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. “What you gonna hold it for 88 years for?” he questioned TMZ.
It was immediately apparent that the iconic MC had more to say about Shkreli’s scruples. Martin’s big bank account helped to secure the purchase of the $2 M album. “Yeah, that sh*thead bought it; f*ck him,” he blasted. Ghost then proceeded to look deeper into Shkreli’s perceived character.
“You don’t take an A.I.D.S. pill that you have for — what, I guess $7 — and then like make it $800. You don’t do that like that. I don’t care if you bought the Wu-Tang album,” was his stark statement. Ghostface Killah went on to clarify that he hasn’t met Martin, but he still doesn’t agree with his opportunistic actions, “that’s not right.”
With a resigned reply, Pretty Toney then shared his thoughts on Once Upon a Time in Shaolin not being accessible to the public. He challenged, “then what you gonna do it for,” demonstrating that music is made for public consumption.
“Right now, it’s out of my hands. It’s whatever; I don’t know about it,” he said.
