Back in March, we learned that the cars both Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac were shot in were being sold at auction for millions of dollars. Now, it looks like even more of Pac's memorabilia is up for sale, even though his family's estate is pushing against the auction.
According to TMZ, Black Heritage Auction is selling a handful of ultra-rare items from Tupac's personal collection including hand-written lyrics and one-of-a-kind jewelry. Tupac's deceased mother, Afeni Shakur, has attempted to prevent the sale of items like Tupac's passport in the past and is potentially taking legal action against the auction house. Black Heritage is saying they never contacted Afeni about the items they're offering because they didn't think it was legally necessary. Afeni and Tupac's estate beg to differ.
The items TMZ lists on sale are as follows:
"- 'All Eyez On Me' tracklist ... $30k
- 'All Eyez On Me Book II' CD master ... $20k
- Nose stud from the cover of 'All Eyez On Me' ... $7.5k
- New York Prisoner Identification Card ... $10k
- Personal signed Koran ... $30k
- Gold and diamond medallion ... $38k
- Famous Dolce & Gabbana wool jacket ... $7.5k
- Lyrics for 'Wonda Why They Call U Bitch' ... $15k"
It is unclear if legal action from Afeni could prevent the auction at all.
The auction is set to begin on April 7. Tupac will be inducted into the Rock And Roll hall of fame by Snoop Dogg next month.
