It's an album of legend: only four ears have heard the entire record in full, all copies bar one were destroyed, and the sole survivor was stored in a secretive Moroccan vault. Crownfunders tried to purchase the LP, and rumour had it that Quentin Tarantino was in the market, but after everything, one man has emerged the owner. Pharmaceuticals villain Martin Shkreli.
Now he owns a record that lots of people want to hear.

Wu-Tang's RZA wrote in a statement:
"The sale of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin was agreed upon in May, well before Martin Shkreli’s business practices came to light. We decided to give a significant portion of the proceeds to charity."
You can also livestream Shkreli's work day, if you so wish.
