Recently we did some research into the most expensive vinyls ever sold and it turned out that the number one slot was taken by Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, purchased for $2 million by former hedge fund manager and undeniably one of the world’s biggest fuckwits Martin Shkreli.
RZA and the Clan only pressed one copy of the vinyl and auctioned it to the highest bidder, making Shkreli the only person on the planet outside the band’s production team to have heard the record. Until very recently.
Corrupt pharma CEO/smug shit-for-brains/the most punchable face on the planet Martin Shkreli is trying to get into the good books with Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. Appreciated, but nice try.
You can listen to one of the tracks here, if you can stand looking at Shkreli’s little dirtbag face for more than 30 seconds.
Once Upon A Time In Shaolin is only seeing a release because of a promise Shkreli made – if Donald Trump won the US election he would let the public have the record. As if that makes us any happier about the whole ordeal.
The billionaire now plans on negotiating the public release of the album with Wu-Tang, so sometime in the future we’ll be getting a better taste.
