Ghostface Killah Wants "Shithead" Martin Shkreli to Give 'Once Upon a Time in Shaolin' to "the People"
Published Jan 22, 2016Plenty of people are pissed off at AIDS-pill gouger/stock fraudster Martin Shkreli these days, including the Wu-Tang Clan. While the former Collect Records-backer may have bought the band's extravagant, one-of-a-kind Once Upon a Time in Shaolin release, an animated torture video should give you an idea that they're not entirely pleased with the business transaction. Now, Ghostface Killah has sounded off on Shkreli, calling him a "shithead" during an impromptu, on-the-street interview.
The Wu-god was recently approached by TMZ and asked about the situation, which led the rapper to offer up his opinion on the businessman jacking up the price of Daraprim, a drug used to treat AIDS and cancer patients.
"You don't take some AIDS pill that you have for, I guess, $7 and then make it $800," Ghostface said.
When grilled over Shkreli possessing Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, he added: "I don't even know him, but I know what he did with the AIDS [drug] like that, that's not right, that's not right."
Ghost also noted that the sale of the record was "out of my hands," but that he wants "the people" to have the mysterious album. Apparently, he isn't convinced that the stipulation of the record not being commercially released for several decades is a good idea.
"What you going to hold it for 88 years for?"
