Human waste receptacle Martin Shkreli has come under fire again. The man who personally raised the price of Aids medication Daraprim has now earned the ire of none other than Wu-Tang alumni Ghostface Killah.
While Ghostface was not at all pleased that Wu-Tang’s one-of-a-kind album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin has fallen into the hands of Shkreli, in an interview with TMZ, rapper called Shkreli a ‘shithead’ and tells him to release the album for the greater good of Wu-Tang fans everywhere.
He also makes comment on Shkreli’s highly controversial aids medication price-gouging. “You don’t take an AIDS pill that you had for seven dollars, and then make it like 800 dollars. You don’t do that like that, I don’t care if you bought the Wu-Tang [album].”
“I don’t know him like that, but when I heard what he did with the AIDS [drug] like that, that’s not right,” said the rapper.
Shkreli replies about a day later to Ghostface on twitter, calling him a ‘non-profit rapper’.
Ghost mad that Shaolin outsold his last 5 albums… dude’s a non-profit rapper. Calls himself ironman, but sounds rusty AF @GhostfaceKillah

Big mistake Shkreli.
Now, TMZ once again has tracked down Ghostface, who proceeded to lay into (verbally) Shkreli’s Michael Jackson-like features and extremely punchable face. He then mysteriously threatened Shkreli with: “I’ll break your heart in four days.”
Shkreli is currently under federal investigation for securities fraud and became one of the world’s most hated men after he raised the essential Aids/cancer medication Daraprim from $13.50 a pill to $750.
Paddle8, the online auction house responsible for the sale, announced that the album had been sold to “an American buyer for an undisclosed figure in the millions.”
When it came out that Shkreli had bought the Wu-Tang Clan’s 31-track double album, people were understandably upset.
RZA told Bloomberg that, “The sale of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin was agreed upon in May, well before Martin Skhreli’s [sic] business practices came to light. We decided to give a significant portion of the proceeds to charity.”
Ghostface was similarly disappointed, saying that the sale was “out of my hands”, and that “the people” should own it.
