fans wondered whether or not the Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album was taken into custody along with the pharmaceutical CEO. The FBI sent out a Tweet yesterday informing the public that the Wu album was not seized in the raid of Shkrelis Brooklyn apartment. Martin Shkreli was arrested by the Feds on securities fraud charges yesterday, but the field office in NYC took to Twitter to give a blanket response to all who were inquiring about the coveted Wu project. The 32-year-old former hedge fund manager bought Wu-Tangs Once Upon A Time In Shaolin for $2 million through online auction house Paddle8. Shkreli even offered to bail out troubled Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda who has been locked up for the past year on various drug and weapons charges. Shkreli posted $5 million bail and was released yesterday. If found guilty on these fraud charges, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
