Martin Shkreli Streams Unreleased Wu-Tang Clan Album Following Trump Victory

The Associated Press

Pharmaceutical entrepreneur and Internet villain Martin Shkreli streamed his unreleased Wu-Tang Clan album following Donald Trump’s presidential victory early Wednesday morning.

Shkreli, who bought the only copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album for $2 million in November 2015, had promised to stream songs from the album on the condition that Donald Trump won the presidential election. He honored his promise by streaming several tracks during a Periscope livestream shortly after the results.

Shkreli also claimed to have unreleased tracks from Nirvana, Radiohead, Brand New, the Beatles, 2Pac, the Smiths, Jimmy Hendrix, the Ramones, and Elliott Smith.

In August, Shkreli claimed on Twitter that he believed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had Parkinson’s disease, adding, “I do think Hillary is hiding these issues from us.”

In October, he debuted a framed pill art piece at Lucian Wintrich’s pro-Trump “#DaddyWillSaveUs” art show, referencing the controversy surrounding his company’s increase on an AIDS pill.

Shkreli appeared on The Milo Yiannopoulos Show in April, where he blamed the mainstream media for singling out and misreporting on his company, branding them as “unbelievably liberal.”
