Martink Shkreli has been in the news lately after he was found guilty of fraud. However, that didn’t stop him from making his own headlines. Shortly after being convicted, he played the first 10 minutes of the secret Wu-Tang Clan album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. Then, he reportedly has managed to get his hands on Lil Wayne’s The Carter V, an unreleased album from the famous rapper.
How in the world did he manage that? Alex Pfeiffer says he has the inside scoop and posted it on Twitter.

Yes, the new owner of the Bugatti Veyron sold Shkreli the album after finding it in his new hypercar. Will he release the album? Who knows, but he’s said to have already leaked two songs from the album.
Update 8/9/2017: Shkreli did not buy the Bugatti, but bought the album from the new owner of the hypercar. The article now reflects this.
