(AllHipHop News) Martin Shkreli was recently convicted of committing investor fraud, but he is perhaps best known to Hip Hop fans as the guy that bought Wu-Tang Clan’s album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million.
“Pharma Bro” promised he would release the one-of-a-kind project if Donald Trump won the Presidency.
Trump was victorious, but the public never got to hear the full secret LP.
However, Shkreli did play tracks from the project during a recent interview.
“I donated $2 million to Wu-Tang,” said Shkreli. “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.”
He also added, “In essence, when Wu-Tang Clan was trying to sell an album for $2 million, when 50,000 copies would do just the same, it’s an act that is basically looking for a handout. I obliged.”
