OVO Sound boss Drake might have a shelved Pusha-T and Kanye West diss record come out whether he he likes it or not. New reports claim jailed pharmaceutical celebrity Martin Shkreli might pull the trigger on Drizzy’s alleged battle rap.
According to reports, Shkreli announced he is in possession of Drake’s new music including a jab toward G.O.O.D. Music’s top bosses.
Continuing to boast about his alleged connections within the hip-hop world, Shkreli claims he has a USB with Drake’s response on it. Asking a friend to help announce the news, Shkreli made a statement over Facebook, which can be seen below: “Additionally, I am pleased to report my offices have received an unmarked USB disk containing what appears to be unpublished and newly created tracks by Drake, referencing recent events with respect to Pusha-T and Kanye West. There are 10 tracks and some appear to be demo tracks by an unnamed artist to inspire a forthcoming, fully-produced “disrespect” musical piece. I would normally share a snippet as I have in the past but my present situation negates this possibility. (HYPEBEAST)
Back in March, Martin received a multi-year prison sentence for a fraud conviction.
Martin Shkreli, a former pharmaceutical executive notorious for sharply increasing drug prices, mounting sneering defenses of his actions and even issuing a bounty for one of Hillary Clinton’s hairs, was sentenced on Friday to seven years in prison after being convicted of fraud last year. Prosecutors had sought a sentence of at least 15 years; the defense had pushed for 12 to 18 months. (New York Times)
In 2017, Shkreli made headlines for purchasing a rare $2 million Wu-Tang Clan album.
Remember that one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album? The band only made a single copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, and auctioned it off for $2 million. Unfortunately for Wu-Tang fans, it was sold to Martin Shkreli. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Shkreli is the “pharma bro” who infamously raised the price of life-saving drugs by 5,000%.

A few days ago, Pusha-T revealed his feud with Drake had ended.
“I don’t even know. I don’t know what was lost or what was gained,” Pusha said when asked what fans are supposed to have learned from the rap battle. “These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it’s all over. It’s all over with. … These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it’s all over. It’s all over with.” (Vanity Fair)
