Prosecutors Are Coming For Martin Shkreli's $2M Wu-Tang Clan Album

Shkreli is best known for raising the price of Daraprim, a then-62-year-old drug frequently used to treat HIV patients, from $13.50 to $750 a pill. In August, the former hedge fund manager was found guilty on two counts of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud; a month later, he found himself in prison when his bail was revoked, after encouraging his Facebook followers to steal a strand of Hillary Clinton's hair.

Federal prosecutors are going after the top secret "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" and Wayne's legendarily unreleased album, along with a bunch of cash.

In a letter filed this week in Brooklyn federal court, prosecutors told a judge that Shkreli is on the hook for $7.3 million.

"The court should hold Shkreli financially accountable for his criminal conduct by requiring him to forfeit the amounts above, which total $7,360,450.00, and enter a forfeiture money judgment against him in that total amount", the filing reads.

It also added, "These are matters that deserve forthright and objective levels of discussion. It featured Ruth Cracknell as Lady Bracknell and Rush played the role of John Worthing.

The potential haul also includes the one and only existing copy of the 2015 Wu-Tang Clan album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which Shkreli bought at auction for $2 million.

Additionally, there was mention of Shkreli's copy of what may be "Tha Carter V", the lost double-album from rap legend Lil Wayne. His attorney, Benjamin Brafman, wrote in a statement that "We will vigorously oppose the government motion".

In an effort to sell their album as "a piece of art" rather than just simply releasing the music, Shkreli's purchase of the exclusive and unheard work caused, to quote Wu-Tang Clan, "a motherfucking ruckus" amongst jealous audiophiles and pretty much anyone who knows the repugnant back-story behind Shkreli's insane wealth.
