Drug Mogul Martin Shkreli Will Release Unheard Nirvana, Beatles Tracks If Trump Elected
Martin Shkreli says he’s prepared to release unheard music by the Beatles, Nirvana and Wu-Tang Clan if Donald Trump becomes US president
He famously purchased the only copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s double album ‘Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’ at auction in 2015 for $2 million. And along with announcing his plans to publish previously unreleased material on Twitter – he also suggests he could destroy the Wu-Tang album if Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton clinches the presidential nomination.
Shkreli says: “If Trump wins, my entire unreleased music collection, including unheard Nirvana, Beatles, and of course, Wu-Tang, comes out, for free”.
Martin Shkreli is an American entrepreneur and pharmaceutical executive. In September 2015, Shkreli received widespread criticism when his company Turing Pharmaceuticals obtained the manufacturing license for the antiparasitic drug Daraprim and raised its price form US$13.5 to US$750 per tablet in one night, leading him to be referred to by media as the "most hated man in America".
