Does jailed "pharma-bro" Martin Shkreli have the unreleased Drake/Pusha-T diss track? 

Dan MartensenDrake’s mentor J. Prince claims that Drake recorded a response to Pusha-T’s “The Story of Adidon," but he counseled Drake not to release it.  But now, notorious "pharma-bro" Martin Shkreli claims he has the track -- and other unreleased Drake songs.

Shkreli, the man who bought the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan Once Upon a time in Shaolin album for $2 million, claims -- in a Facebook message posted by a friend -- that he is in possession of the music.

"I am pleased to report my offices have received an unmarked USB disk containing what appears to be unpublished and newly created tracks by Drake, referencing recent events with respect to Pusha-T and Kanye West," writes Shkreli, who is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence for securities fraud.

"There are 10 tracks and some appear to be demo tracks by an unnamed artist to inspire a forthcoming, fully-produced 'disrespect' musical piece," he adds. "I would normally share a snippet as I have in the past but my present situation negates this possibility."

In the Facebook post, Shekreli also mentioned Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V album, whose rights he purchased back in 2016 before relinquishing them.

"I’m pleased to hear Lil Wayne’s Carter V will be released soon and his litigation has been settled. It is a great addition to his already impressive corpus," reads the message.
