Martin Shkreli on Ghostface Killah: "If He Were Here Right Now, I’d Smack Him Right in the Face"
Pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli stopped by Power
105's the Breakfast Club this morning to talk about the Ghostface Killah diss
and the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album he purchased. He shares the story
behind buying the $2 million album and the events that transpired afterward,
including his feud with Ghostface. "I have a tremendous amount of respect
for the whole Clan, including Ghost, but we're talking musically," he
says. "There's a difference between music and real life, and
“He’s one of the greatest
rappers ever," he continues. "But he’s still a man, he bleeds
the same blood as me, it's both red. And if you want to talk shit, I’m
not the one… If he were here right now, I’d
smack him right in the face."
Shkreli also says he was very serious about bailing out
Bobby Shmurda. "I would have loved to, and I was in conversations with his
attorney a day before I got arrested," he explains.
