What is one thing Donald Trump and drug money have in common? The Wu-Tang Clan
Yeah, you read that right. The Wu-Tang Clan. The CEO of Turning pharmaceuticals, Martin Shkreli, promised to release his entire collection of unheard music including the only known copy of an exclusive Wu-Tang Clan album if Donald J. Trump was elected for president.
It doesn’t end there though. Shkreli has promised to release unheard music from Nirvana and the Beatles as well.
If Trump wins, my entire unreleased music collection, including unheard Nirvana, Beatles, and of course, Wu-Tang, comes out, for free.

The pharmaceutical executive, who was denounced for raising the price of a prescription drug from $13.50 to $750 per pill in 2015, has been an avid collector of music and willing to pay ungodly sums of money for exclusive content. He was reported to buy the only known copy of a Wu-Tang album for $2 million in 2015.
All in all, Shkreli said he has about 30-35 tracks to release but has not yet laid out his strategy to release them. To get the ball rolling, however, he played a portion of the intro to the exclusive Wu-Tang album via live stream on Wednesday November 9th that can be seen below. Stay tuned as we follow Shkreli for further releases. Lets just hope this isn’t dangled over our heads too long.
