In compensation for imprisoned pharmaceutical CEO and hedge fund manager Martin Shkreli’s debt, Wu-Tang Clan’s one-of-a-kind record was sold to an unnamed buyer in the United States.
Martin Shkreli, the now-disgraced pharmaceutical executive, rose to prominence in 2015 after his business, Turing Pharmaceuticals, inflated the price of a medicine by 5,000 percent. Daraprim, a 62-year-old medication, was used to treat a parasitic infection. The medicine was originally priced at $13.50 each pill, but Shrkeli raised it to $750 per tablet.
Former President Donald J. Trump compared Shkreli to a “spoiled brat” because of his controversies.
Martin Shkreli was found guilty of three out of eight counts of fraud at his trial in the Federal District Court of Brooklyn in 2017: securities fraud in connection with MSMB Capital, securities fraud in connection with MSMB Healthcare, and conspiracy to commit securities fraud in connection with the Retrophin stock scheme, in which he attempted to control a large portion of the stock.
Martin Shkreli paid $2 million for the Wu-Tang Clan’s renowned copy of “The Wu – Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” at an auction.
Cilvaringz “under the guidance” of RZA produced the 31-track album, which was contained in a hand-carved nickel-silver box made by British-Moroccan artist Yahya.
The manifesto of the project’s website reads, “The intrinsic worth of music has been reduced to zero.” “The exclusivity of contemporary art makes it worth millions. The CD is a work of art in its own right.”
The government seized the exclusive album in 2018, after a judge ruled that it may be used to pay off part of Martin Shkreli’s $7.36 million government debt.
The album’s sale was revealed in a news release by Jacquelyn M. Kasulis, the acting US attorney for the Eastern District of New York. Due to the terms of the sale, the US government has agreed to keep the amount and the buyer confidential.
Federal prosecutors did not say who bought the Wu-Tang music or how much it cost.
[WATCH] 50 CENT AND JIMMY KIMMEL CRACK JOKES ABOUT NICKI MINAJ’S COUSIN’S FRIEND
Nicki Minaj and her cousin’s acquaintances are still being mocked. After reading the information about the COVID-19 vaccine causing testicular irritation, 50 Cent and Jimmy Kimmel cracked a few jokes while discussing the forthcoming BMF concert.
“I heard you got Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend’s testicles to be on this program, and I know this is meant to be a surprise, but I heard you got Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend’s testicles to be on this show. Is that accurate?” Kimmel inquired.
50, who is never afraid to tell a joke, jumped right in.
50 joked, “Listen, you didn’t look into the intricacies of the scenario.” “According to the details, he was set to marry. The testicles, I believe, are from the bachelor party. That was never said. Why hadn’t the bachelor party been considered? It was Pfizer if you had a great bachelor party and then your body started swelling.”
If you didn’t get the humor, Pfizer also makes Viagra.
The playful conversation between the two can be heard below.
