It’s been 20 years since the late rapper Tupac Shakur was shot dead in Las Vegas. Over the weekend a four-page letter that was written by the rapper was auctioned off for the price of $172,750. A statement from Goldin Auctions, the letter was part of a 10-lot collection including plaques and contracts. Goldin Auctions also said, this could be a record for any of Tupac’s items.
The letter was originally written to Nina Bhadreshwar, who worked at Death Row Records.
“I did not begin thug life,” ‘Pac writes in the letter. “I just personified it. I couldn’t stop it if I tried but in my heart the thug ni**a has advanced 2 be a Boss Playa. So No Thug Life is Not Dead but in my heart it is. If U are sharp u will learn from this.”
Although, Tupac’s death has never been solved, his fans still have his music to remember him by. He’s truly one of the greatest rappers of all time. In 2017 his biopic movie “All Eyez On Me” will be released into theaters.
