Pharma bad boy Martin Shrekli has a posse of goons, and he’s going after the Wu-Tang Clan! We just hope he realizes who he’s up against.
This twisted and somewhat flanked story to follow, continues to cradle one of the most bizarre hip-hop feuds of the century. Now, in an unusual online video recording obtained by TMZ.com, accused fraudster and avid rap fan Shrekli, threatens the Clan’s Ghostface Killah with a trio of masked “goons.”
"You're not a Ghost Killah, I'm sorry," Shkreli sneers, "You think it's ok to beef with me. But that's' a big mistake. You're an old man who has lost his relevance.”
Shkreli then noted the fact that he had forked over $2 million for the one-and-only copy of a Wu-Tang Clan album, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin.
"If you ever say some dumb shit again, this album, this 'Shaolin,' I'm going to erase all your shit from this album, you understand? I'm going to erase you from the record book of rap."
"Without me, you're nothing," Shkreli said. "So don't ever mention my name again, or there'll be more of a price to pay than this video."
You have the golden album, decades on decades in advance, and you can’t just listen to it and be a happy hip-hop fan?
This stems from Ghostface responding to a previous barb.
"This the man who wants to be beef, right?" the rapper said while showing a photo of Shkreli on his phone. "The Michael Jackson nose kid."
"You don't want to do it," he then warned Shkreli. "I'll break your heart in four days".
Now this threat on the other hand, is something we can believe. Given that Shkreli is about 5’8” with the physique of delicate second-string cricket player, it’s hard to imagine he’s not afraid of not only being locked up, but going head-to-head with the streets rap pioneers.
At this point Shrekli, a word to the wise, enjoy the album, make yourself comfortable in prison, and stop before you become fully aware of what an actual “goon” is.
