Someone is clearly playing games with Lil Wayne’s money and all roads apparently lead to pharmaceutical guy Martin Shkreli who is currently facing federal security fraud charges. Martin Shkreli live-streamed himself listening to what he claims are two unreleased tracks from Tha Carter V, Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated unreleased album.
Once the rapper learned of its release, he and his team have launched a full-scale investigation about how something like this has happened. Lil Wayne is a seasoned rapper and business man and things like this don’t typically happen at his level unless someone from his camp or someone who might have been in the recording studio when it was recorded passed it off to Shkreli.
Shkreli is no stranger to drama involving rappers as he and Wu Tang’s heavy hitter Ghostface Killah sparred it out on social media back in 2015.
Tha Carter V hasn’t been commercially released yet because of ongoing disputes with Lil Wayne’s record Cash Money and its CEO Birdman.
Shkreli is sure to have more legal troubles when Cash Money and their partnership with Universal Music Group file lawsuits for damages as a result of the music leak.
