Martin Shkreli aka the “Pharma Bro,” made headlines after he purchased the Wu-Tang Clan‘s one-of-a-kind LP, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for $2 million. Now, Shkreli is threatening to destroy the record or make fans go on a Indiana Jones-styled hunt in a remote locale to find it.

In a profile piece by VICE, Shkreli dishes about several items of his personal life, including the jail time he potentially faces for securities fraud. VICE takes several digs at Shkreli, who became an infamous figure after his pharmacueatical company hiked up the price of an AIDS medicine by several hundreds of dollars.

But it was Shkreli’s discussion of the album that was also a moment of note in the piece and his eventual plans for handling its destruction or release.

From VICE:

With the Wu-Tang album playing in the background, Shkreli says he vacillates between wanting to destroy the record and dreaming of installing it in some remote place so that people have to make a spiritual quest to listen. “I’m not just the heel of the music world,” he says. “I want to be the world’s heel.”

TMZ exclustively reports that Shrkeli had some bars for Ghostface Killah, even going so far to address the Shaolin swordsman by his honorable given name, Dennis Coles. It appears that Shrkeli didn’t appreciate being caled the “Michael Jackson nose kid” by Toney Starks, thus the threat of sending the goons out to handle his lightwork

Check out the footage of Martin Shkreli looking about as hardcore as a wet napkin in the clip below.
