Martin Shkreli Is Releasing Wu-Tang Clan’s $2 Million Album After Trump’s Win

‘Once Upon a Time in Shaolin’ gets the YouTube secondhand listening treatment

Today (November 9) marks 23 years of Wu-Tang Clan's Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), their studio debut album and a modern classic.

You could spin that and appreciate their lyrical mastery, or you could hit up Martin Shkreli's YouTube account and watch videos of a smug dude playing their latest album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, because he's decided to release the album he bought for $2 million now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States.

We accept the listening experience we think we deserve. But if your curiosity is getting the better of you, fear not: Shkreli, who's the owner of the single copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, had pledged to put the record out there pending Trump's victory. Now that he's won, he's uploading partial clips of the new (to us) material to YouTube.

While the election results took Shkreli by surprise, he's still prepared to make good on his word, or try to: He's going to attempt to broach the topic of a wide release with Wu-Tang, as Pitchfork notes, so, yeah.

Good luck with that, Shkreli. And wear a helmet before you wind up in the same room as Ghostface.
