Wu Tang clan leader and hip-hop lead actor RZA gave an insightful interview with Rolling Stone on Friday, featuring the mogul / producer on the fabled Wu Tang album and the fate of his owner, Martin Shkreli. According to Rolling Stone, RZA is an advocate of the rules and laws associated with selling the album to Shkreli ̵
Despite this respect for the law, RZA still admits he was trying to get the album back from the disgraced Pharmabro:
"I actually tried to get it back," he continues, "but the paperwork and the contract prevents me from getting it back. "When [Shkreli] offered it on eBay, the first thing I did was to call my lawyer, and I said," Yo, let's go. "And they said," Good, check with your contract. "And it's no, you can not do it, is not that a bitch?"
Shkreli tried to sell the album for $ 1 million, about half of what he had originally paid but his recent incarceration and the upcoming auction by the DoJ probably stopped it. As for Shkreli's seven-year prison sentence, RZA gives a fantastic response that is even better when read in his voice:
Look, nobody likes jail. I was imprisoned a few times myself. Do not like it, do not advise or prescribe it to any man, and I'll do my best to get out of the crime, right? But if he did the crime, and it seems he had agreed that he committed the crime, then he must take the time. That's part of our system. I would hope that everything was done right, was done legally and correctly, and that everyone came to a pure decision that was not motivated by anything but truth and justice. But if it's a lie that motivates people, then sometimes you get the backend. "
