Ghostface Killah Wants Martin Shkreli to Release ‘Once Upon a Time in Shaolin’ Album
You can add Ghostface Killah to the long list of people who aren't fans of Martin Shkreli. TMZ caught up with Ghostface Killah and Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Killah Priest to get their thoughts on Martin Shkreli, the controversial pharmaceutical entrepreneur, being the owner of the rare Wu-Tang Clan album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. Ghostface pulled no punches when it came to Shkreli.
"That shithead," Ghostface said. "Fuck him. You don't take some AIDS pill that you have for what? I guess it's like $7 and then make it like $800. You don't do that. I don't care if he bought the Wu-Tang... whatever, whatever, whatever. But on that note, that's why he's crazy."
Ghostface Killah made it clear that he doesn't know Shkreli personally, but simply cannot support a person who behaves that way.
"I don't even know him, but when I heard what he with the AIDS [medication] like that, that's not right," Ghostface said. "That's not right. $7 to $800 for a pill?
TMZ asked about the Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album and Ghostface Killah explained that he's hopeful the album will be released to the public. Ghostface clearly doesn't support the idea of there being just one copy of the LP.
"Right now, that's out of my hands," Ghostface Killah said. "I'd like the owner to be the people. Whatchu gonna hold it for 88 years for?"
Martin Shkreli responded to Ghostface Killah's remarks on Twitter. Check out what he had to say below.
