The former pharmaceutical CEO claimed that West and his label, Def Jam Recordings, are legally required to take his offer to the company's board of directors, hoping this would delay Friday's scheduled release "by a few days."

Everyone's least favorite former pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli is looking to buy up some more of everyone's favorite hip-hop.

After Martin Shkreli bought the Wu-Tang Clan's one-of-a-kind Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album for $2 million, he has now offered Kanye West $10 million to buy the rapper's new album, The Life of Pablo, "so it don't get released publicly."

Shkreli claimed that West and his label, Def Jam Recordings, are legally required to take his offer to the company's board of directors, hoping that this would delay Friday's scheduled release "by a few days."

For context, before making this offer Shkreli was publicly fishing offers for motion picture roles on his Twitter account and then went on to talk about The Bachelor, so you can decide for yourself how seriously you want to take him.
