Martin Shkreli, the disgraced former hedge fund manager and pharmaceutical company CEO responsible for raising the price of Daraprim (increasing the price to $750 a tablet from $13.50), made headlines earlier this year after acquiring Wu-Tang Clan's one-of-one album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million. Although he has teased time and time again a leak of the album, Shkreli recently took things a step further by promising to release it if Donald Trump was elected president. Following the results of last night, Shkreli kept his word and livestreamed parts of the album, including the intro and one of its tracks.

According to Shkreli, he didn't expect Trump to pull ahead over Hillary Clinton and admitted that despite streaming the records, he can't technically release the Wu-Tang album. Per the agreement after its purchase, he is barred from publicly releasing material from the album for 88 years. For now, a few of the cuts can be heard below.
