Yet another batch of handwritten Tupac Shakur letters have surfaced and they are already generating a sizeable buzz.
So much to the point where experts are expecting a final bid edging the $100,000 mark.
According to ITV News, the estimated value of the Tupac Shakur letters is between £30,000-£50,000, or $47,000-$78,000 in American currency. The penmanship of the late Hip-Hop icon will soon be a main attraction to Sotheby’s upcoming Rock & Pop exhibition.
“We are delighted to have this item in our sale, it’s a really unusual item,” Gabriel Heaton, Sotheby’s specialist in books and manuscripts, says in a statement. He [Tupac] is a fixture of enormous popularity and great cultural significance, so we are confident there’ll be a lot of interest.”
Although the idea of Tupac Shakur letters being a coveted item isn’t all that surprising, one particular set of the documents will indeed to prove themselves priceless, as they feature lyrics from the instant classic All Eyez on Me opener, “Ambitionz Az A Ridah.” The NYDailyNews also reports that one of the scrolls features the spoken word outro to the song, “Tradin’ War Stories,” also featured on the diamond-selling album.
The California rap staple immediately recorded the song along with dozens of others upon his release from prison in October 1995, as hinted in the blockbuster film, Straight Outta Compton.
