A teaser of the $2 million dollar album.

Martin Shkreli has aired tracks from his copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album he bought for $2 million last year, following his promise to share the record if Donald Trump became president.

As Pitchfork reports, the pharma villain has been streaming portions of the album online – watch the YouTube clips below. Shkreli said that he would have to negotiate terms of a wider release with Wu-Tang Clan.

Earlier this year Shkreli ironically endorsed Trump before saying he would abstain from choosing between two “crap” candidates.

He has also claimed to be working on his own album with Just Blaze (a fact refuted by the producer) and says he plans to release more unheard music by Nirvana and the Beatles.

The pharmaceutical CEO initially made headlines for hiking the price of a critical drug by 5,000%. Last December he was revealed as the buyer of Wu-Tang’s one-of-a-kind album, which led him into a public spat with Ghostface Killah after the MC called him a “shithead”. Shkreli hit back with an embarassing diss video and threatened to destroy his extravagant purchase.
