Attorney General Jeff Sessions is already in enough hot water within the Trump Administration. Now he may in another kind of trouble, the hip-hop legal kind.
When pharma bro Martin Shkreli was locked up and had to turn over assets to the Feds, he also turned over two rare albums, Wu-Tang Clan‘s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin and a leaked version of Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V. Forbes is reporting that the United States Department of Justice has officially filed for both albums and that, “the United States hereby gives notice of its intent to dispose of the forfeited property in such manner as the United States Attorney General may direct.
The Wu-Tang album may be a little tricky. As terms of the original $2 million deal RZA made with Shkreli, should ownership of the album change hands, the new owner still won’t be able to sell it for another 88 years after the initial purchase made by Shkreli.
Tha Carter V may be even trickier than that seeing that Shkreli came upon the album for an undisclosed amount from a man who found a complete copy of the CD in a used Bugatti Wayne sold him a couple years ago. Which means that we could be entering a world where Jeff Sessions has to go to court with Birdman for the rights to a Lil Wayne album.
