This installation is in reference to the sale of the Wu Tang Clans secret album, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, to the infamous Martin Shkreli. Shrekli is most notably known as public enemy number one or pharma bro. He gained notoriety by increasing the price of a life saving drug, Daraprim, overnight from $13.50/pill to $750.00/pill. Due to actions which led to defrauding investors, Shkreli was sentenced to 7 years in prison and had to forfeit 7.4 million dollars to the United States Government, which included the most expensive album ever made, Once Upon A Time In Shoalin.

Not only is the piece in reference to this event but it is also about power in politics, being born with a silver spoon in your mouth, the opioid epidemic and all over corruption.
