Ghostface Killah Responds To Threats From Pharmaceutical Giant | Music News

Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah’s grievance with Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO, Martin Shkreli, has continued after Ghostface called him a “shithead” last month. This was after Shkreli bought the sole copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s album, 2015’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, for $2 million at an auction.


Shkreli then responded with threats of physical violence. Ghost hit back, his grievance partly to do with the fact that Turing recently bumped up the cost of antiparasitic drug, Daraprim, by over 5,000%. This is used to tackle AIDS. Ghostface Killah said, “This is about AIDS right now. This is what you did to the people, to the American people and the people all over the world. I stand for them. I’m not gonna allow you to keep killing these people”.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
