Billed as the final album to feature every member of the group, the Wu-Tang Clan's Once Upon a Time in Shaolin is a unique artifact. There is only one copy, contained in a silver-and-nickel box, that was kept under heavy security at the Royal Mansour hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco. In 2014, Forbes magazine published a 51-second sample of the album (warning: there are swears).
THE KEY PLAYERS
THE WU-TANG VS. SHKRELI BEEF
Neither Mr. Shkreli nor the Wu-Tang Clan's members have hidden their disdain for one another.
In an interview with Vice published in January, speaking while playing the album in the background, Mr. Shkreli suggested that he could destroy the album. The next day, TMZ released a video in which Mr. Shkreli, surrounded by masked men, taunted Ghostface Killah, one of the most outspoken critics of Mr. Shkreli among the Wu-Tang members (though he later specified that he didn't actually threaten the rapper).
On Feb. 9, Ghostface Killah released a 12-minute-long video lambasting Mr. Shkreli, calling him a "fake supervillain" and bringing out his mother and sister for an emotional appeal to change Turing's pricing policies. (The video also promotes a Wu-Tang-branded line of flavoured cannabis oil.)
Be warned: The video contains lots of swearing.
