Among those identified by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of NY are a one-of-a-kind album by the rap group Wu-Tang Clan for which Shkreli paid $2 million, an unreleased album by rapper Lil Wayne purchased from an unknown third party for an undisclosed amount, an original Picasso, as well as $5 million being held in an E*Trade brokerage account.
Federal prosecutors have reportedly asked a Brooklyn Federal Court judge that the former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shrekli turn over his one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album as part of an assets seizure.

She said her boyfriend saw Mariah around midnight when she got up and he told her to go back to bed. When they went to check on her in the morning, she was gone.
Along with the disk set, which he bought two years ago for $2 million from the celebrated NY hip-hop group, the government said it may also seek a Picasso painting he owns, his Enigma machine from World War II, and his interest in Turing Pharmaceuticals AG. A Brooklyn jury deliberated five days before finding Shkreli guilty on Friday on three of eight counts.
"We will vigorously oppose the government motion", said Shkreli's lawyer Ben Brafman in an email to CNNMoney.

While the obvious Grammy prediction would be Bruno Mars , it would be a shame not to see a rap album win the award. Jay-Z received eight nominations for his album "4:44", and Kendrick Lamar received seven for his album " DAMN ".
In a schadenfreude-inducing letter, Rhode spells out the potential fines for Shkreli, who was convicted of securities fraud earlier this year.
Even after being convicted, Shkreli struggled to repress his quirky instincts and to stay off social media. "None of the investors lost any money and Martin did not personally benefit from any of the counts of conviction". Shkreli won the album after he bid $2 million in an auction, and owns the only copy of the album in existence.

His first game will be at home to Huddersfield on Saturday, and he will no doubt want to cap his first game off with a victory. David Unsworth will remain in charge of the Blues for tonight's Premier League match against West Ham United at Goodison Park.
Shkreli's interest in Daraprim maker Turing Pharmaceuticals should also be forfeited, as should the $5 million put up as bond in an E-Trade brokerage account, according to the letter. Shkreli later apologized and said he was joking.
