In case you've been missing out on one of the most hilarious celebrity feuds in recent memory, allow us to fill you in on Martin Shkreli v Ghostface Killah.

You'll need the background info in which order to fully appreciate this video in which a skinny white kid threatens to smack one of the world's most famous rappers during a live radio broadcast:

You may already know Shkreli as the "Pharma Bro" who jacked up the cost on a life-saving HIV and cancer medication by more than 5,000% while he was CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals.

To many in the hip hop community, however, Shkreli is better known as the dude who paid $2 million for a Wu-Tang Clan album. Of course, it wasn't just any Wu Tang album.

You see, the Wu only pressed a single copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, and until Shkreli shelled out an absurd sum for it, the disc was sitting in a vault in Marrakech, like some artifact from a freakin' Indiana Jones movie.

But despite his cartoonish, Scrooge McDuck-esque display of wealth, the Wu still had no love for Martin.

In fact, Ghostface pointed out that Shkreli's nose looks a bit like Michael Jackson's around the time of cosmetic procedure number 94.

Shkreli got pissed and posted a video in which he threatens Ghostface while a bunch of "goons" pose menacingly behind him.

That brings us today, and Martin's unintentionally hilarious interview with The Breakfast Club.

There are so many reasons to watch the video above in its entirety that we couldn't possibly highlight them all here.

  • Charlamagne Tha God cals Shkreli a "privileged, entitled prick" like 10 seconds in.
  • Shkreli talks about discovering rap while he was managing his first hedge fund like that's some kind of universal experience.
  • The dude admits he bought the Wu Tang album so that people would think he has a big penis!

The highlight, of course, is Shkreli talking tough:

"If you want to talk shit, I’m not the one," he says, when asked about Ghostface. "If he were here right now, I’d smack him right in the face."

Yup. Like we said, the whole clip is worth watching. It's not every day you get to see a man almost literally beg for an ask whupping.

Martin actually makes some good points during this interview, but you can bet the trash talk is gonna land homey in some serious sh-t soon.
