It appears that human social experiment Martin Shkreli, excessively proud owner of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, has tried to threaten and demand an apology from Ghostface Killah. The pair's so-called beef stems from recent interviews in which the Wu-Tang rapper mocked Shkreli and called him out for price-gouging and album-bogarting.
"It's just one of these things, that for whatever reason you think it's okay to beef with me, but that's a big mistake," Shkreli and friends say in the above video, before fishing for a pen pal. "If you ever say some dumb shit again, this album, this Shaolin, I'm gonna erase all your shit from this album. I'm gonna erase you from the record books of rap. You're my son. You have to listen to me. I butter your bread, you understand me? Without me, you're nothing."
The new dad also re-explained the situation to TMZ, in yet another Thursday video sure to (re-)insult music fans the world over:
Ghost had yet to respond at time of publication, but Shkreli was not backing down:
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
Yikes. Where's NDGT, dangerous beef executioner, when you need him?
