On Friday, Martin Shkreli live-streamed himself listening to what he claims are two unreleased tracks from Tha Carter V, Lil Wayne's highly anticipated new project. This comes after his controversial purchase of Wu-Tang Clan's one-of-a-kind Once Upon A Time In Shaolin.

In the Periscope video Shkreli teases his audience, divulging that he's acquired a "two-CD tape" but refusing to reveal how much he paid for it. According to TMZ, close confidantes of Lil Wayne have confirmed that the audio Shkreli played is, in fact, legitimate, and that Wayne's "camp is doing an internal investigation to find out if someone passed the song to Shkreli."
