Tupac Shakur was many things; to some he was a “hardcore rapper” with “Thug Life” tatted across his stomach. To others he was an intellectual who’s music spoke on people’s everyday struggles. To some he was transitioning to being a dope actor or just an all around amazing artist.
To one of his former classmates, who he nicknamed Beethoven because she played piano, he was a sweet guy. Now she is selling a love letter that Tupac wrote to her back in 1988 as well as a letter that allegedly explains their relationship.
She said, “I didn’t know the man who tattooed ‘Thug Life’ on his chest and who was gunned down on a Las Vegas street. I never really cared for the music he recorded—it was nothing like those freestyles in front of our school. I knew the kid who loved Prince, and candles and had a broken heart.”
The love letter definitely shows there was a more sweet and sensitive side to the “All Eyez On Me” rapper. And now it’s worth $35,000 through memorabilia dealer.
