‘Villain’ Martin Shkreli appears to be trying to unload the singular copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s 2015 album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin on eBay. The rarity is currently going for $995,100. According to the Daily Beast, Shkreli kicked off the bidding war with a starting price of $1. Shkreli famously purchased the album for $2 million.
“This is the one and only Wu-Tang album,” eBay user martishkrel_7 says in the listing’s description. “I decided to purchase this album as a gift to the Wu-Tang Clan for their tremendous musical output. Instead I received scorn from at least one of their (least-intelligent) members, and the world at large failed to see my purpose of putting a serious value behind music. I will be curious to see if the world values music nearly as much as I have. I have donated to many rock bands and rappers over the years to ensure they can continue to produce their art when few others would.”
