After making headlines back in May for leaking unreleased tracks from Lil Wayne's long-awaited Tha Carter V album, Martin Shkreli is back in the limelight this week after being found guilty on three counts of securities fraud. After his conviction, Shkreli participated in a live stream interview, in which he played a few minutes of Wu-Tang Clan's $2 million double album, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin.
"I don't buy fancy things. I donated $2 million to Wu-Tang," the former pharmaceutical exec tells the interviewer in the live stream video. "I got a mixtape in return. It was a wonderful investment. I view it as a donation. People might see that as splurging, but I don’t think there are many people in the world who have patronized hip-hop to the extent I have."
