President-elect Donald Trump's victory has prompted embattled pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli to publicly debut some songs off the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album he bought for 2 million US dollars last year.

Mr Shkreli promised last month to release Once Upon A Time In Shaolin if the Republican took the White House.

He made good on the plan early on Wednesday by playing snippets of the album during a live Periscope video posted on Twitter. The video has since been deleted.

Mr Shkreli won an auction for the sole copy of the album last year.

The former Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO was vilified by many in 2014 for raising the price of a medication to treat HIV by 5,000%. He was also charged with securities fraud last year.
