Embattled entrepreneur and aspiring rapper Martin Shkreli has announced that he is dropping a full length rap album.
The self-proclaimed “serial beat killer” made the announcement on Twitter on Saturday (Aug 6) but it didn’t go over so smoothly as several rap fans started trolling him.
“My album isnt a pharma parody or no bullsh*t. It’s anthem after anthem i put down for the streets because I am a serial beat killer,” Shkreli tweeted.
Martin Shkreli also tweeted out a tracklist for the yet to be title album naming Timbaland, Just Blaze, and Scott Storch as producers of three of the singles. He also noted that there will be a Ghostface Killah diss track on the album.
Aside from those details there are very little we know about the album. There is no release date but he did hinted that he will be taking over the summer of 2017. He is also considering his rap name to be M$ and his alter ego to be “The Professor.”
“‘What dat mouf do’ is the club banger. going to be my summer (2017) when it gets the radio push,” he wrote on Twitter.
The name Martin Shkreli started gaining attention in hip hop when he announced that he bought Wu-Tang Clan’s exclusive album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for $2 million. But he started beefing with the group when RZA called him a sh*thead during an interview with TMZ. Shkreli also received a lot of public backlash when he dramatically raised the price of AIDS medication, Daraprim from $13.50 per pill to $750.
