Martin Shkreli, the “most hated man in the world” and recently indicted former Turing Pharmaceuticals C.E.O., just recorded a video dissing Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan. For those who are unaware, Shkreli was the person who bought the Wu-Tang Clan “Once Upon A Time In Shaolin” album for $2 million. Ghostface called Shkreli a “shithead”, which led to the making of this amusing video:
A few thoughts:
-Shkreli is small AF. Seriously, one of Ghostface’s gold eagles is bigger than this dude.
-What’s with the fake goons in the background? Rocking North Face hoodies and affecting tough guy voices doesn’t make you intimidating. Those guys remind me of some drunk frat boys who just listened to a Stitches song.
-“I butter your bread”?!? What the hell is that supposed to mean? Sounds sketchy.
-How would Shkreli actually erase Ghostface’s rapping from those CD’s? Seriously…
-It’s bad karma to mock Killah Priest for being arrested and “copping pleas”, when Shkreli will undoubtedly cop any plea that the feds offer his skinny ass.
-“Don’t ever mention my name again, or there will be more of a price to pay than this video.” Potential repercussions be damned, Ghostface has mentioned Shkreli the Shithead a few times on Twitter since then.
I think Ghostface summed it up best on his 1996 song Daytona 500: “Rhymes like retail, make sure shit sell / from where we at to my man’s cell”, since Shkreli will ultimately be listening to “Once Upon A Time In Shaolin” in his prison cell.
