Back in 2015, Martin Shkreli (the pharmaceuticals villain who hiked up the price of a life-saving HIV drug by 5000%), bought the only copy of Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album for an eye-watering amount of $2million.

In 2018, Shkreli was forced to give up the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album after a judge ordered him to forfeit $7.4 million in assets.

It's now been confirmed that the US government has sold the unique album, although there's no information about who they sold it to or for what price.

Shkreli’s trial lawyer Benjamin Brafman revealed in an email to CNBC that the sale price was "substantially more than what Mr. Shkreli paid for it."

As BBC reports, the Once Upon A Time In Shaolin sale means that Shkreli has now paid off the full amount of his forfeiture deal.

Last year it was announced that a film based on Martin Shkreli’s purchase of Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album was being made for Netflix.
