Mijonair Martin Shkreli bought the rare Wu-Tang Clan album "Once Upon A Time In Shaolin" in 2015, for two million dollars. Only one copy is made of the album, and it is in the hands of Martin Shkreli. The album was secretly recorded between 2008 and 2013 and stored in a vault. The two CD's cannot be released commercially until the year 2103.
Martin Shkreli did not really take the time to listen to the album. Martin Shkreli is a hated person among many people because his pharmaceutical companies raise the prices of medication. Martin himself claims that he has made a purchase to thank the Wu-Tang Clan for their amazing musical input. See the advertisement here.
Below the original text:
This is the one and only Wu-Tang album.
I decided to purchase this album as a gift to the Wu-Tang Clan for their tremendous musical output. Instead I received scorn from at least one of their (least-intelligent) members, and the world at large failed to see my purpose of putting a serious value behind music. I will be curious to see if the world values music nearly as much as I have. I have donated to many rock bands and rappers over the years to ensure they can continue to produce their art when few others would.
At any time I may cancel this sale and I may even break this album in frustration. I will donate half of the sale proceeds to medical research. I am not selling to raise cash--my companies and I have record amounts of cash on hand. I hope someone with a bigger heart for music can be found for this one-of-a-kind piece and makes it available for the world to hear.
Upon sale, I will represent & warranty any copies of the music I have will be destroyed. I have not carefully listened to the album, which is a double CD. There is also a finely crafted booklet which you can read about elsewhere. I will pay legal expenses for the buyer up to $25,000 to ensure the final purchase details are mutually agreeable.
