He'll never stop trolling.
Martin Shkreli has just been convicted of a host of security fraud charges, and continues to bug the hell out of the Hip-Hop community.
It was recently during a live internet chat discussing his charges that Shkreli played Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon A Time in Shaolin, the rare project that he purchased for $2 million, and infamously threatened to destroy.
“I donated $2 million to Wu-Tang,” he said of the buy around the 48-minute mark below.. “I got a mixtape in return, it was a wonderful investment. I view it as a donation. People might see that as splurging. I don’t think there are many people in the world who have patronized hip-hop to the extent I have.”
For the next ten minutes, he would play the project until the clips inevitably ends.
It was Friday that Shkreli, a former pharmaceutical executive was found guilty on 3 of 8 charges brought against him. Currently out on a $5 million bail, he doesn't seem to be bothered much as he took to Facebook to express his content with the verdict.
“I’m delighted with the outcome of the insane witch hunt against me,” he penned in a Facebook post. “The government concocted a fantasy world of eight criminal counts connecting nonexistent dots into an elaborate conspiracy encompassing a dozen people. The jury soundly rejected this idiocy, leaving only 3 vacuous charges which ‘stuck’.
“I am proud of my legal team for all of the hard work which resulted in an acquittal on the serious, ‘loss-carrying’ charges. A simple reading of the USSG suggests a sentence of “0 to 6 months.”
