It took me a minute to get the joke, but here's the explanation. The Wu-Tang Clan released an album, literally just one copy of their album. It sold for 2 million to pharmaceutical douchebag Martin Shkreli. Said douchebag recently got arrested for fraud a few days ago. The more you know 💫
@D0N RAM0N, Yeah he's the one guy who raised the price of a certain AIDS medicine from like $13 to like $750
@E equals mcHammer, he intended to do the same for another disease as well, 26 to like 5000
@Cloverleaf, @E equals mcHammer, *not to alter the douche-ness* but noting the Obamacare screwing down of drug prices for Medicaid / Medicare has landed mostly on generics for the rest of us. Our med plan counters it by charging us full price for generics until we hit 3k deductible. It guarantees we will hit deductible every year just on generic meds - no other medical use included. So we have 6k more out of pocket annually for an "affordable" health care plan than in 2009.
@D0N RAM0N, I read about this and in the contract they signed all members of the Wu Tang Clan and Bill Murray if they see fit can conduct a heist to get the album back from the owner. Also the owner owns the rights to the album and with such can do whatever they please as long as they don't make it commercially available. Meaning they can upload it online for free but not sell it
@Cloverleaf, Yup, his entire pharmaceutical company's strategy was just to buy patents for already existing drugs and raising the prices. He founded a pharmaceutical company that didn't intend on making its own drugs.
@D0N RAM0N, yeah Fvck that guy!
The last Wu Tang album only had one pressing and the dude who bought it was a rich a hole who was just arrested. That's the joke. Calm down.
I feel like everyone needs a little NWA in their life
Do you not know that it is not something to, quote, "F#%k With!"?
Time for Bill Murray to make his move!
@sykopoet, no one else understood your comment
I didn't realise i was in jail.
@Punny lad, pretty sure breaking the law makes you a criminal, regardless if you get caught.
@funny pic veteran, it said *arrested*
@Punny lad, yes. But still referring to the picture you don't have to be arrested to be a criminal.
This isn't even funny. I mean, what? Where? How?
@giggybiggy, Wu Tang Clan only made 1 copy of their last album. Martin Shkreli (pharma guy who raised the price of an HIV pill by like 4000 percent or something), bought that album and was arrested a few days later for fraud
@D0N RAM0N, actually, that was _Once Upon A Time in Shaolin_, which was released in 2013, I think. Their latest album, from December 2014, which, for some reason, didn't get a lot of recognition, _A Better Tomorrow_, was sold publicly.
@giggybiggy, although the one copy of OUaTIS was sold in 2015, it was pressed and ready for sale earlier in 2014
@giggybiggy, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin was released in 2015 as a single copy
@giggybiggy, disregard what I said about 2013, god, I'm a mess right now
@giggybiggy, didn't get a lot of recognition because it's the worst Wu album ever made. Wasn't necessarily bad but far from what I've come to expect from my favorite rapper/group
Dolla dolls bill yall
