Martin Shkreli has recorded a video in which he disses Ghostface Killah and threatens to erase his contributions from Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album he paid millions for. In the video, Shkreli sips from a glass while being surrounded by three masked men. He also plays Once Upon a Time in Shaolin in the background. Watch it below, via TMZ.
Their beef began last week, when Ghostface called him a “shithead” and said he should release Shaolin for free. Later, he also made fun of Shkreli’s nose. In the video, Shkreli refers to Ghostface as “Dennis”—his real name is Dennis Coles—and generally talks like a wrestling villain would.
“At the end of the day, I’m very sorry for you,” he said. “You’re an old man—an old man that’s lost his relevance, and you’re trying to claim the spotlight from my spotlight. That’s not going to work, Ghost—Dennis. In fact, I think that if you ever say some dumb shit again, this album, this Shaolin, I’m going to erase all your shit from this album. I’m going to erase you from the record books.”
Another tidbit: “Ghost, stop pretending, stop acting, stop lying. Be real, as your video once said, and uh, don’t ever fucking mention my name again, or there will be more of a price to pay than just this video.”
It’s worth noting that in a recently published profile, Shkreli said he wanted to be “the world’s heel.” (In pro wrestling, “heels” are bad guys.)
Shkreli is currently awaiting trial on charges of securities fraud.
