Buy Tupac Shakur’s High School Love Letters for Just $35,000
In his lifetime, Tupac was an avid writer of more than just raps and rhymes. His book of poetry The Rose That Grew From Concrete is a must own library addition for any rap fan. And now, TMZ is reporting that a love letter written by Pac has surfaced and is available to purchase for the price of $35,000.
The letter, which if being sold by memorabilia dealer Moments in Time, is addressed to a woman Pac refers to as Beethoven for her skills behind the piano. In it, he discusses his love of Prince, and gets candid about his own emotions and feelings.
"I felt compelled 2 write u, can’t really explain it, I really feel good vibes from u" the letter begins. "As u will soon find out, I do not spare words, I say what I feel. So if something I say scares u please don’t panic because I tend to get over emotional. My heart usually leads me too fast and that’s probably why I always get hurt. So if it ever seems as though I’m moving too fast please slow me down!" Pac then notes that he and his love interest share an appreciation for candles and asks "What else could I ask 4?"
The letter was written in 1988 to a girl in Pac's drama class, and it's clear from the language he uses that Pac was serious about putting his emotional cards on the table. Read the letter in full up above or over at TMZ.
