Martin Shkreli Wants to Buy Lil B's Forthcoming 'Black Ken' Mixtape

Martin Shkreli Wants to Buy Lil B's Forthcoming 'Black Ken' Mixtape
It's nearly been an entire calendar year since Lil B dropped his most recent mixtape Thugged Out Pissed Off. Lately, he's been assuring his legions of fans that more "rare art" will be coming soon with the release of Black Ken, but not if evil billionaire pharma villain Martin Shkreli has anything to say about it.

Today (December 22), Shkreli made the subtle flex announcement that he was preparing to buy "another legendary rap album no one has" to presumably sit on the same shelf as Wu-Tang Clan's unreleased Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. When asked if it was Lil B's Black Ken mixtape by a follower, Shkreli revealed that it is "something bigger," while saying he still had interest in purchasing the tape.

It's known that the Basedgod works in mysterious ways, and Lil B replied that he was "very excited" to see what Shkreli had in mind. Reaction from the Bay Area rapper's fan base has been split so far. One fan called the potential sale "the most unbased move of all time," while others urged Lil B to get his money after years of giving away his art for free.

We hope the Lil B makes the right call here, as we'd much rather hear the entirety of Black Ken as it was meant to be heard, instead of in grainy snippets from a Periscope stream. Find the business proposition below.
