Martin Shkreli threatens to erase Ghostface Killah from ‘Once Upon a Time in Shaolin’

The owner of the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album releases video diss aimed at Ghostface

Controversial pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli has released a video in which he disses Ghostface Killah and threatens to erase his contributions from ‘Once Upon a Time in Shaolin’.

Shkreli bought the one-of-a-kind album for $2m in December.

Last week, Ghostface branded Shkreli a “shithead” and criticised his decision to raise the price of AIDS drug Daraprim.

In the video, Shkreli hit back at the Wu-Tang Clan rapper while surrounded by three masked men.

“At the end of the day, I’m very sorry for you,” he said. “You’re an old man—an old man that’s lost his relevance, and you’re trying to claim the spotlight from my spotlight. That’s not going to work, Ghost—Dennis. In fact, I think that if you ever say some dumb shit again, this album, this Shaolin, I’m going to erase all your shit from this album. I’m going to erase you from the record books.”

He added: “Ghost, stop pretending, stop acting, stop lying. Be real, as your video once said, and uh, don’t ever fucking mention my name again, or there will be more of a price to pay than just this video.”

In a recent profile, Shkreli told Vice that he was undecided over whether to destroy the record or release it to the public.

He also said he wanted to be “the world’s heel”, referring to the pro-wrestling term for a villain.

Shkreli is currently awaiting trial on charges of securities fraud.
