Handwritten Tupac lyrics go on sale for $38,500 to mark the 20th anniversary of his death
For the 20th anniversary of Tupac’s death, some of the artist’s handwritten lyrics has gone up for sale. The documents are on sale for $38,500, after one of the rapper’s former employees – who has kept the lyrics since 1996 – put them up for auction.
Specialist showbiz memorabilia site Moments In Time is selling the handwritten lyrics to Tupac’s song ‘Chasin’ Moments’, which he wrote shortly before his death in 1996. The song eventually appeared on his posthumous 2002 album ‘Better Dayz’. Other items were sold in the past, such as a love letter Tupac wrote while at drama school to a fellow pupil named Beethoven, for $35,000.
As September 13 marks the 20th anniversary of the iconic rapper’s death, collectors and wealthy fans are supposed to cough up the cash.
