1. Martin Shkreli is a pharmaceutical company CEO who was in the news last year for increasing the price of Daraprim—used to treat AIDS and cancer patients—from $13.50 to $750 per tablet. Today, Shkreli made headlines again after Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election.

The CEO bought Wu-Tang Clan's previously unreleased, one-of-a-kind album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for two million dollars. Shkreli recently promised that if Trump won the election, he would release the previously unheard Wu-Tang Clan music.

Well, he kept his promise. Check out the clips below (via Pitchfork).

Once Upon A Time In Shaolin was recorded over the course of six years, pressed in 2014 and stored in a secret vault until 2015.

We always have and always will fight for equality, in whatever capacity we can. Count your blessings and show no fear. This song is called 'Viper Strike'. It is not for the faint of heart. MCID" - Johnny
