    Martin Shkreli, the pharmaceutical executive who made news by jacking up the price on cancer/AIDS medication, is at it again, and this time he's keeping everything for himself. The frequently maligned executive has personally purchased Wu-Tang Clan's exclusive double-album Once Upon a Time in Shoalin for a reported $2 million, with the caveat that he must keep the music under wraps for 88 years.

    Shkreil, a Brooklyn native, is reportedly a big fan of the Wu-Tang Clan, but not so much as to have listened to the album yet - apparently, he's saving it for a special occasion. Hopefully, we'll all get a chance to hear some of these hidden tracks if the group decides to tour in the future.
