Ghostface Killah and Martin Shkreli are back at it again. The Wu-Tang Clan member recently responded to Shkreli’s threats in a YouTube video. Not to mention the pharmaceutical CEO’s recent Power 105.1 Breakfast Club interview, where he said he that “If he was here right now, I’d f**ing smack him in the face,” referring to Killah.
Essentially, Ghostface’s beef with Shkreli stems from the dramatic hike he placed on Daraprim, an HIV drug, from $13.50 to $750.00. In the new video, the rapper gathered some of his woes and his mother, who offered to spank Shkrelli.
“This man is too good for you to be doing what you doing…Boy, I need to put you over my knee and spank your bumba ras clot,” Ghostface Killah’s mother quipped. Aside from his mother’s tough love approach, the rapper primarily focused on the AIDS issue at hand, regarding the drug.
“This is about AIDS right now,” Ghostface Killah affirmed. “This is what you did to the people. To the American people and the people all over the world, man. I stand for them…What you need to do is get down with me and start helping these people out. That’s what it really should be. Because gangstas don’t move the way that you do…I know a lot of people that died from AIDS, man. And it’s just sad. But here go you, the devil in the flesh, trying to be the villain to Tony Stark.”
Ghost also took the opportunity to address Shkreli’s comments regarding Wu-Tang clan being now just a thing of the past; considering how they just sold a $2 million dollar album.
“I don’t even know how it came to this Ghost versus Peter Pan in 2016,” he said. “All he can do right now is try to fly away in front of my face, man…He ain’t got a real bone in his body…He a fraud, man. And then on top of that, you gon’ come after me, after you done bought a Wu-Tang album for $2 million? Acting like we washed up rappers. Like I’m a washed up rapper. But you done bought a washed up rapper album for two million. Who washed up now? I don’t care how much money you got. Cause money don’t make you a man.”
