Martin Shkreli loves making a stink, and he will do it at almost any cost. The US's most reviled pharmaceutical company executive yesterday offered $10 million to exclusively buy Kanye West's new album, The Life of Pablo. He tweeted a copy of his offer letter to the pop star, and followed up that Kanye must by law consider the offer and, thus, delay his album's release.
Kanye, who loves outrageous statements but only if he makes them, appears unmoved by Shkreli's claims or offer. He said that TLOP (which some have affectionately dubbed Tomatoes, Lettuce, Onion, Pickles) will be released today, according to BillBoard.
