The guy who paid 2 million dollars for a Wu-Tang record obviously has love for hip hop in a major way because TMZ.com is reporting that pharmaceutical boss Martin Shkreli believes bailing Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda might be a good investment for him. Shkreli, is famously known for a controversial decision to raise the price of vital AIDS medication, Daraprim from $13.50 per pill to a staggering $750 each has incited protests from across the internet and the real world. The only condition that Shkreli is asking of the rapper now is that he records some music for him. Looks like the rapper may be out for Christmas.

He tells Hip Hop DX the following:

Martin Shkreli: We’re actually in discussion to try to bail out Bobby Shmurda. Forget whether you think he’s guilty or not, the guy should not be sitting in jail right now. It’s insane. He’s from Brooklyn. I’m from Brooklyn. He deserves a fair trial. He deserves good lawyers. He doesn’t have good lawyers. His label is hanging him out to dry and so I have a conference call tomorrow morning with them (December 15). I’ll show up with $2 million bail money no fucking problem. He’s not going to flee the country. I’m not going to lose anything. I’m going to try to make that happen. That’s one thing I’m working on.

HipHopDX: Where did that come from? I’m sure you’re familiar with the story, but are you a fan?

Martin Shkreli: I’m a fan and I’m a business man. I’m not going to do this for free. [Laughs] He’s going to have to do something for me. I don’t know what that’s going to look like yet. He’s going to owe me one, obviously. I’d like to pay for his legal defense as well. I’m a big fan but also I’m an opportunist. You know that. I see an opportunity here. He’s a talented guy. Every concert I go to, people yell “Free Shmurda.” He reminds me of me, quite frankly. The guy’s totally irreverent. He doesn’t give a damn what people think. Totally irreverent. Totally I don’t give a fuck. I love him. I just love that style. He’s from not far from where I’m from in Brooklyn. I’d love to help him out. I wish someone would have helped me out when I needed help. He doesn’t have much money, I know that. He’s definitely hurting for money. He needs a bailout, basically. I’d like to help him out. No big promises, but I’ll see what I can do. Like I said, if I can post the $2 million, I’d do it tomorrow. I’m working on it and hopefully we’ll see him free soon.

The entire interview is pretty interesting to say the least. He also sent a warning out to RZA of Wu-Tang Clan. Check out the entire interview above.
