The 1 Of 1 Wu-Tang Album Was Purchased By The Guy Who Price Gouged The AIDS Pill!


Normally I have nothing but opinions on the world of events in Hip-Hop, however this time I am speechless. When I heard there would be a 1 of 1 Wu-Tang Clan album auctioned off to the highest bidder, I thought it was a stroke of brilliance. It was refreshing to know that finally an authentic piece of Hip-Hop culture could be sold without commercialism, radio play, or cheesy gimmicks in this day and age. Unfortunately, this single most impressive preservation strategy is now reduced to ashes. The anonymous purchaser of the 1 of 1 album for $2 million dollars has been outed as Martin Shkreli. If you don’t remember the name Martin Shkreli maybe you’ll remember hearing about the dirt bag who purchased the AIDS pill and drove the price from $13.50 to $750. It seems as if he’s done it again but this time it’s to Hip-Hop.  Shkreli says he has yet to listen to his latest acquisition and that he would like to share the moment with someone special. “I could be convinced to listen to it earlier if Taylor Swift wants to hear it or something like that,” he said. “But for now, I think I’m going to kind of save it for a rainy day.”Martin-Shkreli
