Martin Shkreli: ‘I’ll leak unreleased Beatles, Nirvana and Wu-Tang music if Trump wins’

Shkreli bought the sole copy of the rap group's double album 'Once Upon A Time In Shaolin' in 2015.

Controversial CEO Martin Shkreli has promised to share his exclusive Wu-Tang Clan album if Donald Trump wins next month’s US presidential election.

Shkreli, a renowned attention-seeker online, bought the sole copy of the group’s double album ‘Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’ in 2015.

On Twitter, Shkreli also said that if Trump wins he will leak unreleased Beatles and Nirvana material that he claims to own.

He then claimed to be live-streaming unreleased Beatles material on YouTube.

He also suggested he would “break” the sole copy of his Wu-Tang Clan album if Hillary Clinton wins the election.

Some of Shkreli’s other publicity stunts have included offering Kanye West $15m to become the only person to own his album ‘The Life Of Pablo’. He also donated $2,700 to former Democrat Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ campaign after Sanders called him “the poster child of greed”.

Last month the CEO claimed he was auctioning off the chance for one person to punch him in the face.

Shkreli first became wildly unpopular after his firm Turing Pharmaceuticals increased the price of Aids drug Daraprim by 5556% from £10 to £577. Known for his extravagant, self-publicising lifestyle, he has frequently been labelled the most unpopular man in America and has called himself “The world’s biggest heel”.
