The former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli has taken to eBay to sell the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album he purchased for $US2 million two years ago.

Shkreli, who was convicted of securities fraud in August, bought the only existing copy of the Wu-Tang Clan’s album “Once Upon A Time In Shaolin” by placing the highest bid at an auction for it in Sept. 2015.

According to Page Six, Shkreli listed the album on eBay with a starting price of $US1 on Tuesday night. The bidding hit $US55,000 and 100 offers within the first hour of its posting, and it currently sits at $US95,100 and 175 bids.

Shkreli debuted the Wu-Tang album — which no one had previously heard — on a livestream the day after Donald Trump was elected president last year, fulfilling a promise to release the project if Trump won the election.

Shkreli became a household name in 2015 when he infamously raised the price of a critical drug by 5,000%.
