U.S. Government Could 'Dispose Of' Martin Shkreli's Forfeited Lil Wayne & Wu-Tang Clan Albums

At the top of March, notorious "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli was sentenced to seven years in prison for various securities-fraud-related charges. Shkreli will also be forced to forfeit more than $7.3 million in assets as part of U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto's ruling, which includes his $2 million Wu-Tang Clan album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, in addition to Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V to cover the fine.

According to the Department of Justice's filing earlier this week, the U.S. government "hereby give[s] notice of its intent to dispose of the forfeited property in such manner as the United States Attorney General may direct." The public has 60 days from filing day to "claim interest" in the property before being discarded.

Forbes reached out to a government representative who stated the albums' fate will, in turn, be decided "directly by the civil division of the U.S. Attorney's office for the Eastern District of New York." With that said, Justice Department head Jeff Sessions will remain "indirectly responsible" for the forfeiture case decision.

RZA Wrecks A Party. He Freestyles Into Headphones & Scratches (Video)

Wu-Tang's U-God Details Clan's Fracture in Revealing Book Excerpt

Wu-Tang rapper U-God reflects on the business decisions that fractured the Clan in this exclusive excerpt from RAW: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang, the rapper's new memoir.

In the excerpt, U-God breaks down how the group's "all for one" mentality disintegrated when "the days of gold and platinum plaques had dried up" and how he thinks RZA, the "mastermind" behind the Wu-Tang Clan and its branding, eventually turned Wu-Tang into a dictatorship.

Mathematics Responds To Alleged Lawsuit Over Wu-Tang Clan's "People Say"

"I am not aware of a pending lawsuit."

This week, reports surfaced of a lawsuit being filed against the Wu-Tang Clan as a result of the hip-hop group’s “People Say” single—a track originally found on the crew’s The Saga Continues project of last year.

It was TMZ who broke news of The Diplomats—a soul group from the 1950s and 1960s—filing a claim that the record pulled from the “melody, lyrics, and rhythm” of their 1969 recording “I’ve Got the Kind of Love” on which the line “people say” is used in heavy rotation. The report claimed that The Diplomats wanted Wu-Tang to stop performing and selling the track in addition to handing over an undisclosed amount for damages

We Asked Inmates How Martin Shkreli Will Get Treated in Prison

The infamous pharma bro just asked to be placed in a minimum-security "camp" facility. Here's what current federal prisoners think he has coming.

Right before he was sentenced to 84 months in federal prison last Friday, “pharma bro” Martin Shkreli broke into tears. Ultimately, the man convicted on three counts of fraud did not get the maximum possible sentence he faced—much less the 21 years I endured in the feds for drug crimes. Even so, the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) will be Shkreli's home for the foreseeable future, and the New York Daily News reported Wednesday he's hoping to land in a minimum-security "camp" facility in Pennsylvania best known for a salmonella outbreak.

U-God: “I Am The Wu-Tang Member That People Don't Know About"

While strength in numbers proved to be the key to Wu-Tang Clan’s success and enduring legacy, it also proved itself to be a system that lacked equal distribution. While some of the Clan’s bigger names broke off and launched massive solo careers, others had to wait in line. U-God — also known as Golden Arms — was one of the members who played the background.

“I am the Wu-Tang member that people don’t know about,” he told HipHopDX.

The founding member of Wu-Tang is hoping to change that with his new book, Raw: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang, which follows him from age five to 26.
