Shkreli played parts of some tracks from the secret, $2 million album titled Once Upon A Time In Shaolin on various streaming channels. The snippets included the album's intro.
The release comes after the 33-year-old promised users on Twitter back in October that he would release his collection of rare music, including previously unreleased songs from Nirvana and The Beatles, if Donald Trump becomes president.
According to Pitchfork, Shkreli suggested that he might negotiate with the Wu-Tang Clan about giving the album a wider release.
Shkreli originally obtained Once Upon A Time in Shaolin in November of 2015. The album is noted for being the only copy of unreleased music from the legendary rap collective. According to the terms of the sale, Shkreli cannot sell the music commercially for 88 years.
Earlier in 2015, Shkreli became public enemy no. 1 when his company acquired Daraprim, a drug used to treat AIDS and cancer patients, and then raised the price from $13.50 to $750 a pill. During a congressional committee hearing on the drug price increase, he repeatedly invoked the Fifth Amendment.
Shkreli has since been charged with securities fraud and is currently awaiting his trial, which is set for June 2017.
