Lil B has revived the possibility of releasing his Black Ken mixtape. The project was first teased in 2010 when the BasedGod released the cover art and a 26-track sample of the mixtape.
But since then, news of Black Ken has been quiet (unless you count Jay Z dressing up as the doll for Halloween this year) until Lil B brought up the project the other day on Twitter.

Martin Shkreli — owner of the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album that he bought for $2 million — chimed in and asked how he can get his hands on the Black Ken mixtape. Lil B welcomed the pharmaceutical exec with open arms and said they will be in contact.
