Ghostface Killah Isn’t Done Dissing Wu-Tang Album Owner Martin Shkreli
It seems that this is the season to beef, with all of the back-and-forth's involving a few of our favorite rappers. And it seems Ghostface Killah—who made major waves in 2015 due to his shots aimed at Action Bronson—has laced up the gloves for round two of his spat with Martin Shkreli, the pharmaceutical entrepreneur who purchased the mysterious Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million late last year.
Ghostface, who was approached by a reporter from TMZ was asked about a recent jab Shkreli took at the rapper's dwindling album sales in response to Ghost's disparaging remarks aimed at him. Ghostface had gotten wind of Shkreli's remark and had a few jokes of his own.
"I'm checking this dude out right now," Ghost said upon being asked for his response to the comments and wasted little time before going in on the "pharm bro."
"This the man that wanna be beefing, right? The Michael Jackson nose kid?" Ghostface asked after pulling up an unflattering picture of Shkreli. The rapper continued his roast fest, stating "Check that nose out... it look like he done carved his nose up," before warning Shkreli that he's not the one to engage in a game of the dozens. "C'mon, bruh, you don't even wanna do it. I'll break ya heart in four days, you know what I mean? In four days."
He also mockingly refers to Shkreli as Peewee Herman before ending the mini roast-fest with the conclusion, "But I'm just laughing off of the dude face because it's like... c'mon, man... look at that smile."
The two's beef started last Friday (Jan. 22) after Ghostface Killah was asked about his opinion on Shkreli and had the following to say, “That shithead,” Ghostface said. “Fuck him. You don’t take some AIDS pill that you have for what? I guess it’s like $7 and then make it like $800. You don’t do that. I don’t care if he bought the Wu-Tang… whatever, whatever, whatever. But on that note, that’s why he’s crazy.”
Shkreli, who must've gotten word of Ghostface's critique, fired back via Twitter. "Ghost mad that Shaolin outsold his last 5 albums… dude’s a non-profit rapper. Calls himself ironman, but sounds rusty AF @GhostfaceKillah," Shkreli wrote in reaction to the news of Ghost's disdain.
What we do know is that Shkreli better pipe down before GFK has to put the oldies back on and give another historic tongue lashing cause Ghostface is definitely not one to trifle with.
