When I was a younger man, in college, one of my favorite albums to play in my Mitsubishi Montero Sport was The Wu-Tang Clan's 36 Chambers. Those guys are amazing and they appeal to my dorky nature with all their sci-fi and kung fu references. This year they came out with an album called Once Upon a Time in Shaolin that cost two million dollars and there was only one copy. It would not be released for 88 years to the public. Unfortunately, the person who bought this one of a kind treasure was purchased by scum-sucking a-hole pharm-bro Martin Shkreli. You know, the guy who raised the price of a life-saving AIDS drug by 5000%. Well, now the feds arrested Shkreli for committing all types of white collar crimes because, again, he is a giant a-hole. So, what's to happen to the Wu-Tang album?

Members of the group have said that they want it back and will sell it to someone more deserving. Federal marshals are looking into seizing it as part of their investigation. If he used the 65 million that he stole to buy it then the government is within its rights to take it. Then they would most likely seal it in a vault like the Ark of the Covenant at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Then the album would really be lost to the world for 88 years. The Wu-Tang killer bees should swarm and take it back with their Wu-Tang swords.
