Pharma bro (and alleged fraud bro!) Martin Shkreli is known for two things, primarily: One, he bought the rights to Daraprim, a medicine prescribed to patients with cancer and AIDS, and promptly jacked up the price 5000 percent, from $13.50 per pill to $750. Two, he used two million of the dollars he earned from tactics like this — and, again, his alleged fraud — to purchase the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. And so, it is with great pleasure that we share this video, featuring Ghostface Killah — a founding member of Wu-Tang, and presumably one of his heroes — repeatedly calling him “a sh*thead.”
Oh, this is delightful. Just delightful. Ghostface says others things, too, like that he thinks Shkreli should return the album to the people, and that Shkreli’s business practices were “not right,” but it’s mostly the stuff at the beginning — the stuff where he repeatedly calls Shkreli a sh*thead — that takes the cake. I hope TMZ tracks down every member of Wu-Tang and gets them to call Shkreli a sh*thead. I hope they make a song about it. I hope they make a whole album about it. Now that would be a record worth $2 million. Please support my Kickstarter to buy it.
