Wu-Tang Clan's one of a kind double album is absolutely something to f*** with if you're controversial pharmaceutical tycoon Martin Shkreli ... who's been revealed as the secret buyer.
You'll recall the Wu's "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" was recently sold to an anonymous buyer, and now Bloomberg says Shkreli is the guy who pulled the trigger -- dropping $2 million to snatch up the album.
32-year-old Shkreli is the hedge fund manager and pharmaceutical exec who made headlines earlier this year for jacking up the price on a cancer/AIDS medication ... from $13.50 to $750 per pill.
Shkreli, who grew up in Brooklyn, said he loves the Wu-Tang classic "C.R.E.A.M." ... naturally. Unbelievably, he also says he hasn't listened to 'Shaolin' yet! He says, "I could be convinced to listen to it earlier if Taylor Swift wants to hear it or something like that" ... but otherwise he's saving it for a rainy day.
As part of the Wu-Tang purchase, Shkreli has to keep the music under wraps for 88 years -- so, he's gonna die with it. And you can start pouring the haterade now because he's already bragging about his next potential purchase.
