They also asked for $5 million in cash that was held in an E*Trade account as security for Shkreli's bond; Shkreli's shares of Turing Pharmaceuticals, the drug company that rocketed him to infamy for raising the price of the medicine Daraprim; the Lil Wayne album "Tha Carter V;" an Enigma machine and a Picasso painting.
He was found guilty on three of eight counts of securities fraud - including cheating investors out of more than $11 million between 2009 and 2014 in a "Ponzi-like scheme" - and faces up to 20 years in prison.
In a report from TMZ, they say the government wants Shkreli to hand over the one-of-one Wu-Tang Clan album and Wayne's album.
Shkreli, 34, is being held at Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center while awaiting sentencing. He then listed the item on eBay in a September 2017 auction, receiving bids in excess of $1 million, though it's unclear whether the purchase went through.
Shkreli's attorney told the Washington Post in a statement that he would oppose the forfeiture claim: "Our position is clear".

Because of freaky threats against Hillary Clinton, posted to Facebook after his conviction, Shkreli has been awaiting his sentencing date in the custody of Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center. The sale was completed while Shkreli was in jail, after his bail was revoked for posting a freaky request on Facebook to pay $5,000 for a strand of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's hair.
Shkreli's lawyer is arguing since of his investors lost any money, he shouldn't have to give anything up.
Shkreli's attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "Accordingly, forfeiture of any assets is not an appropriate remedy".
The case is U.S. v. Shkreli, 15-cr-00637, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn).
