Obviously there was no chance any of us were going to be the eventual owner of “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin,” Wu Tang Clan’s new album for which they only made one physical copy, but I didn’t expect this. The new owner is none other than Martin Shkreli, the pharmaceutical CEO who rose to infamy earlier this year for jacking up the price of an AIDS medication to $750 a pill.

And what’s even worse? He apparently hasn’t even listened to it yet, as he’s saving it for when he needs a pick-me-up. “I could be convinced to listen to it earlier if Taylor Swift wants to hear it or something like that,” Shkreli says, according toBloomberg. “But for now, I think I’m going to kind of save it for a rainy day.” You monster.
