Martin Shkreli still owns the only copy of the Wu-Tang Clan's album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, and he promised to release the project to the public if Donald Trump was elected president. So following Trump's victory on Tuesday night, Shkreli appeared to be make good on that promise. He shared several snippets of the album during a live stream and promised to negotiate the terms of a wider release for the album with Wu-Tang.
He started off by playing part of the album's intro track:
After that, he previewed two more tracks from the album:
As it turned out, none of that came to fruition, and he's now looking to share the album with the world. It's unclear how members of Wu-Tang will feel about this, as it was originally reported that the buyer of the album was contractually obligated not to share the album for 88 years after purchasing it.
You can listen to all the snippets of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin above, and stay tuned for more information about whether or not we'll end up seeing the entire project released by Shkreli.
