NEW YORK -- Martin Shkreli. Name doesn't ring a bell? Well, he's the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals. He's also the same guy who raised the price of a drug used to help AIDS and cancer patients from $13.50 a pill to $750 a pill. That's a 5,000% mark up!

Well, the ‘World's Most Hated Man’ just got a little more shady after buying the new Wu-Tang album for a whopping $2 million.

Apparently, Shkreli has quite the collection of music and memorabilia. The limited edition, 31 track double album named “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin,” comes in a fancy hand-carved box along with a leather bound book with lyrics.

Now, as messed up as all this sketchy sale sounds, one thing's for sure -- Shkreli has good taste in music.

All jokes aside, RZA, one of the group's members announced some of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity, but it's unknown how much.

As for Shkreli, guess when cash rules everything around you, you just stop caring what people think or more so, what you do with your dough.

But after this purchase, he may need to protect his neck.
