Former Retrophin firm CEO and currently convicted felon Martin Shkreli hasn’t been scared to ruffle feathers in the hip-hop community since teasing his ownership of Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V back in 2016.
Two years later, the “Pharma Bro” is trolling the Young Money family yet again, but this time from behind bars and with one of rap’s most recent hottest commodities that hip-hop heads have been spinning for: Drake’s “career-ending” diss track against Pusha T.
According to a post from his official Facebook account, which he emphasized was posted by a friend, Shkreli was “pleased to report” that a mysterious USB popped up at his offices with 10 never-before-heard studio workings from Drake. One of them includes content that might be especially interesting for King Push and Kanye West fans.
“There are 10 tracks and some appear to be demo tracks by an unnamed artist to inspire a forthcoming, fully-produced ‘disrespect’ musical piece,” he wrote. “I would normally share a snippet as I have in the past but my present situation negates this possibility.”
That “present situation” he refers to is his seven-year prison stint in New Jersey for defrauding investors. He also sent a shout-out to Weezy for his recent legal victory, especially as it concerns the aforementioned album he claimed to have seized.
“I’m pleased to hear Lil Wayne’s Carter V will be released soon and his litigation has been settled,” he wrote. “It is a great addition to his already impressive corpus.”
We still advise fans to still take such claims with a grain of salt considering that his alleged possession of Weezy’s long-awaited project yielded no leaks or unauthorized release of any other sort. And as he previously stated, there’s only but so much the incarcerated fraudster will be able to do between the four walls of his Fort Dix federal prison cell, anyway.
