Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA revealed the heart-to-heart discussion he had with controversial pharmaceuticals entrepreneur Martin Shkreli after Shkreli purchased the only copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin in 2015 for an alleged $2 million, during an appearance on Joe Rogan’s show The Joe Rogan Experience this week.

“The reality of it is it’s now sitting in a temperature control room in the Department of Justice,” declared RZA, referencing Shkreli’s seven-year prison sentence and seizure of assets in 2018. “He’s incarcerated right now, so I think a lot of his assets have been seized by the government, including that album.”

“I did have a conversation with the gentleman… I said listen yo, because he had a lot of bad things going on for him, I said yo, if I was you I would take this chance to do philanthropy and I would give this away to the public,” RZA claimed. “If I was him, based on how much he had taken from the public.”

Comedian Donnell Rawlings, who also appeared on the show, noted, “He wasn’t a nice person. He didn’t want to give the impression he was a nice person. He wanted to be, ‘I don’t give a fuck.’ He was having too much fun, son.”

RZA added, “He didn’t mind being a supervillain, let’s put it that way. More of a Lex Luthor.”
