NEW YORK — President-elect Donald Trump's victory Tuesday has prompted embattled pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli to publicly debut some songs off the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album he bought for $2 million last year.
Shkreli promised last month to release "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" if the Republican took the White House. He made good on the plan early Wednesday by playing snippets of the album during a live Periscope video posted on Twitter. The video has since been deleted.
If Trump wins, my entire unreleased music collection, including unheard Nirvana, Beatles, and of course, Wu-Tang, comes out, for free.
