Pharmaceutical entrepreneur/troll of the year candidate Martin Shkreli is up to his usual antics as his latest claim is that he has obtained two discs full of material from Lil Wayne's unreleased Tha Carter V album. Speaking to DJ Akademiks in a live Youtube stream, he stated, “I do have what I believe to be a two-CD, authentic, Carter V final product mixed down."
Shkreli allegedly approached by a hacker due to his reputation as a collector, late last year he purchased the Wu-Tang Clan's one of one album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. “If you’ve been known to spend seven figures on music, I would contact that person first before anyone else. Who else would you go to? Who else is putting seven figures down for unreleased rap tracks?”
One thing Martin wanted to make clear was that the sale was legal, “I believe that the sale is legal. Criminal law? Forget it. But [in terms of] civil law, I don’t believe that Lil Wayne could sue me. I don’t believe Birdman can sue me. I don’t think Universal could sue me. It’s a legal sale.”
