(AllHipHop News) Martin Shkreli is offering the world the chance to hear the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album purchased for a reported $2 million.
The controversial pharmaceutical executive announced the Wu's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin would be released if the American public elects Donald Trump as the next President of the United States.
Shkreli also claimed he has unheard music by rock bands Nirvana and the Beatles that would be released if Trump wins.
"If Trump wins, my entire unreleased music collection, including unheard Nirvana, Beatles, and of course, Wu-Tang, comes out, for free," posted Shkreli.
At the moment, Trump is behind his main opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, in several swing state polls which makes it hard for the Republican candidate to win 270 electoral college votes.
Many Wu fans were not pleased Shkreli was able to buy Once Upon A Time, because he was being referred to as the "most hated man in America" for raising the price of an anti-HIV drug over 5000%.
Wu-Tang's RZA responded to the criticism over the purchase.
“He bought it. He can do what he wants,” said RZA. “If the greatest man in the world was the one who wanted to possess it, it would have been his objective. If my enemy came to an auction and said, ‘I want that picture of RZA just to throw darts at it.’ It’s being auctioned. So I could never discriminate who appreciates art.”
In addition, Shkreli later got into a public feud with Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah.
