When he's not mocking Congress and pretending that he's not in very deep sh*t these days, arguable sociopath and formerly SF-based pharma bro Martin Shkreli is keeping busy by having an online war with Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan. As you'll recall, Shkreli is something of a fan, having purchased the only copy of of the Clan's ultra-limited edition new album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin back in December, just before his arrest on securities fraud charges.
Now free on bail, Shkreli just made the asinine video you can see above, picked by TMZ, in response to some comments Ghostface made to TMZ last week calling Shkreli "that Michael Jackson nose kid," sounding clearly baffled that this guy was beefing with him.
This all seems to stem from one tweet Shkreli wrote last week, being the sole owner and listener of that Shaolin album, saying Ghostface "sounds rusty AF."
Ghost mad that Shaolin outsold his last 5 albums dude’s a non-profit rapper. Calls himself ironman, but sounds rusty AF @GhostfaceKillah— Martin Shkreli (@MartinShkreli) January 22, 2016

A @GhostfaceKillah response tomorrow evening. Don't cry, Ghost. All rap careers come to an eventual end. Long time coming, motherfucker.— Martin Shkreli (@MartinShkreli) January 26, 2016
As mentioned in my video, I expect a written apology, @GhostfaceKillah. At least 500 words, no grammatical errors and Shaolin stays intact.— Martin Shkreli (@MartinShkreli) January 28, 2016
Shkreli threatens to "erase" Ghostface from the record, somehow, while holding a glass of wine, backed up by some no-doubt awesome friends in masks, and calls the rapper an "old man" and says he'll "erase [him] from the record books of rap." "Without me, you're nothing," Shkreli says, making little rational sense.
Excuse me while I go gouge out my own eyes and die because this is trending news today.
