The hip-hop group sold their one-of-a-kind album ‘Once Up A Time In Shaolin’ to Shkreli in December for $2 million (£1.4 million), with Ghostface later referring to Shkreli as a “shithead” while urging him to release the record publicly so fans could hear it.
Shkreli had previously made headlines and angered many by buying the rights to life-saving drug Daraprim and increasing its cost from $13.50 a pill to $750.
Following Ghostface’s original remarks, Shkreli hit back by claiming that the rapper is “mad” that the one-copy album “outsold his last five albums”, continuing to describe him as “a non-profit rapper”. “Calls himself ‘Ironman’ [the title of Ghostface’s 1996 debut], but sounds rusty as fuck,” Shkreli added.
Now Ghostface has responded again in a video uploaded by TMZ. “This the man who wants to be beef, right?” the rapper said while showing a photo of Shkreli on his phone. “The Michael Jackson nose kid.”
“You don’t want to do it,” he then warned Shkreli. “I’ll break your heart in four days”. Watch in full below.
Since buying the Wu Tang album, Martin Shkreli has been arrested for securities fraud.
Wu-Tang Clan de-facto leader RZA previously implied that Shkreli has the power to do what he wants to do with the record, saying: “He bought it, he can do what he wants. The beautiful thing about art, from my standpoint, is that it has no discrimination.”
“If Mr. Shkreli feels philanthropic, he has the power to do something really cool, you know what I mean? He could do something that would allow more people to hear the record.”
