Wu-Tang Clan recently discovered that the the person who bought their exclusive one-off album ‘Once Upon A Time’ for $2 million turned out to be sleazebag Martin Shkreli, the arse-hole CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, the company that bought rights to the AIDS pill and increased the price from $13.50 to $750 a pill.
That has lead to a war of words between RZA Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Shkreli. RZA has said that actor Bill Murray is the only person who is allowed to steal the album. Shkreli responded “I think he thinks I’m some powder puff white guy CEO that’s got too much money. No. No, no, no. I definitely don’t spend $2 million for nothing. That’s a lot of money, even if you’re Carl Icahn. I’d encourage him to shut the fuck up before he goes a little too far”.
Under the terms of the sale Shkreli is not allowed to sell the album for 88 years but Murray is allowed to swipe it at any time in that period.
