Most of the New York illuminati (shoutout to corniness from Bey, I still believe it exists) are currently gathered at Madison Square Garden to hear Kanye West livestream his latest album The Life Of Pablo and show his Yeezy Season 3 fashion line. But everyone’s favorite jackass pharma bro Martin Shkreli is apparently not satisfied to possess the sole copy of a Wu Tang album, and has decided he wants to be the only one on earth who owns Pablo. In a series of tweets, Shkreli has offered $10 million dollars to Kanye and his label for the rights to a sole copy of the album’s recordings.
Here is the official letter, via a tweet:
And the rest of his commentary:
While I’m no legal expert, considering all the time Shkreli has spent in court lately — and that it seems like he’s made a career out of bending laws — I’m guessing he knows what he’s talking about. Then again, this could just as easily be some kind of sick joke. Either way, given how volatile Kanye has been lately on Twitter it seems likely that he’ll respond publicly. The album is still livestreaming via Tidal.
