Martin Shkreli isn't really having what one would consider a good week. The infamous 'Pharma Bro' hedge-fund manager has just been formally convicted of fraud, facing a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison. But it's not all doom and gloom; Shkreli has just given a new interview where he has treated the world to snippets of his much-sought-after $2 million Wu-Tang Clan album. Tune in at the 48-minute mark in the video below.

The immersive, hour-long interview finds Shkreli discussing his recent verdict in addition to what he considers his "charitable" endeavors. Said charity includes his purchase of the ultra-rare Wu-Tang full-length Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, the sale of which he had this to say about:

"I donated $2 million USD to the Wu-Tang Clan and I got a mixtape in return, it was a wonderful investment. I view it as a donation. People might see that as splurging. I don’t think there are many people in the world that would have patronized hip-hop to the extent that I have."

Stay tuned to see what comes next in the never-ending saga of Shkreli's trolling of culture at large.
