‘Pharma Bro’ Shkreli Selling Wu-Tang Album
Former pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli has put the only known copy of a Wu-Tang Clan album he bought for $2 million in 2015 up for sale on eBay.
Eric Pamies – Wu-Tang Clan
Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Spain.
In the auction listing for Once Upon A Time in Shaolin, Shkreli writes that he has “not carefully listened to the album.” He adds that he purchased the double album “as a gift to the Wu-Tang Clan for their tremendous musical output,” but instead “received scorn” from one of the members of the group. Ghostface Killah mocked Shkreli in a video last year, calling him “the man with the 12-year-old body.”
The top bid for the album stood at just less than $1 million early Thursday.
“Pharma Bro” Shkreli was convicted last month of deceiving investors in a pair of failed hedge funds.
