For die-hard Tupac Shakur fans, this may be a deal to keep all eyes on. The late rapper’s signed contract for his appearance in the 1992 cult classic Juice recently hit the Internet market and is being auctioned off on eBay for $6,500, reports XXL. Juice, the movie that catapulted Pac into film stardom with his dark portrayal of psychotic teen killer Roland Bishop, recently had its 20th year anniversary.
The contract, according to the seller, is one of three Tupac signed for his role in the film. It details Pac’s compensation—“$1,647.80 per ‘studio week’ for no less than (7) weeks”—and reveals that Shakur was also up for the role of Q, eventually portrayed by Omar Epps.
According to the seller’s description: “This is the fist [sic] out of 3 contracts signed by Tupac for the movie Juice. This contract is for the roll [sic] of Q of [sic] Bishop in the movie. There is no other copies or reprints of this contract. This is truely [sic] one of a kind and you will never see it anywhere else.”
The two-page paper contract also comes with a certificate of authenticity from Startifacts and even displays Shakur’s social security number. As of Wednesday afternoon (Feb. 22), the contract had not received any offers. The auction ends at roughly 4:30pm EST. The seller, michaelmmeux, also has a Pac autographed copy of 2Pacalypse Now, up for grabs.
We ain’t mad at you.
