Feds want 'Pharma Bro' Martin Shkreli's Wu-Tang Clan album

Martin Shkreli might have to forfeit his one-of-a-kind Wu Tang album

The former Biotech CEO became known in the public eye after purchasing the elusive Wu album for about $2 million, but Bloomberg News is reporting someone may have sold the project on eBay while Shkreli was locked up for $1 million, even though the buyer is still unidentified. He's either getting hit in the face with dog shit, getting threatened with lawsuits by Lil Wayne, or having to deal with the feds, who are now looking to seize the rare Wu-Tang Clan and Lil Wayne albums he has in his possession.

He is now imprisoned in a Brooklyn jail after he was convicted of securities fraud in August.

Like his threats against Clinton and gleeful price hiking of life-saving medications, Shkreli's ownership of the Wu-Tang Clan's "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" has been a sideshow of his criminal case.

Shkreli's trial posed an unusual obstacle for prosecutors in that investors who were defrauded did not lose money.
