Today brings another bizarre turn in the story of Martin Shkreli and the exclusive Wu-Tang Clan album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin he previously bought for $2 million in 2015. Now Federal prosecutors are asking federal judge Kiyo Matsumoto to seize Shkreli’s one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album and his copy of Lil Wayne’s The Carter V among other assets in turn for the money he owes after being convicted for defrauding investors.
According to CNN Money, prosecutors are asking for $7.4 million including the $5 million bail he put up. To cover the difference they are requesting additional assets including his exclusive Wu-Tang Album, Lil Wayne’s The Carter V (which he’s reported to have acquired in a bizarre way - someone bought a Bugatti from Lil Wayne who left The Carter V cd in the car, which was then sold to Shkreli), a Picasso painting and an Enigma machine, which is a World War II artifact. This is an interesting turn of events for Shkreli so stay tuned to see what happens with Wu-Tang and Lil Wayne's albums. Enjoy!
