Martin Shkreli, the virgin millionaire and world's most hated man, has emerged as the winning bidder of the Wu-Tang clan's secret album. The single-copy album sold for $2M and comes with a legal stipulation limiting its commercial release for 88 years.
Though it has yet to be confirmed, a tweet today revealed another very interesting stipulation in the contract.
Lets hope Bill and the Wu are plotting the heist as we speak. Real or fake, doesn't this make for an excellent movie plot?
Wu member Method Man had an interesting reaction to this story.
“Fuck that album. I’m tired of this shit and I know everybody else is tired of it, too,” Method Man said to XXL magazine on Wednesday. “Fuck that album, if that’s what they are doing. I haven’t heard anything like that, but if they’re doing crap like that, fuck that album. Straight up. I’m just keeping it 100. When music can’t be music and y’all turning it into something else, fuck that. Give it to the people, if they want to hear the shit, let them have it. Give it away free. I don’t give a fuck; that ain’t making nobody rich or poor. Give the fucking music out. Stop playing with the public, man.”
In case his views were unclear, he clarified his position on the 88-year stipulation. “I was cool with shit. But now, this is ridiculous. 88 years? Really? If that shit is true, that shit is stupid.”
I totally feel where Method Man is coming from.
By the way, does anyone need a date this weekend?
