Martin Shkreli Wants to Buy Kanye West's Album for $10 Million
Martin Shkreli, the pharmaceutical exec who became infamous for significantly raising the price of a drug to treat AIDS patients, wants to be the sole owner of Kanye West‘s new album The Life of Pablo.
The exec, who was arrested on security fraud charges back in December, has offered $10 million to the rapper in exchange for the album.
“Instead of releasing this product for your millions of fans, I ask you to sell this recording solely to me, for the price of $10,000,000. I believe you (and your partners) will find this financial arrangement more attractive than your current course of action,” he wrote in an open letter on his Twitter account.
Martin has previously purchased the sole copy of Wu-Tang Clan‘s album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million.
