Diehard Tupac Shakur fans can own a piece of history as reports claim a hat worn by the late hip-hop mogul in his "California Love" music video.
According to reports, Pac's fedora is currently up for grabs courtesy of the ex-wife of rocker Vince Neil.
Fedoras suck. Except if they were owned by the late Tupac Shakur. The rapper's Biltmore Imperial homburg hat can be yours--the hat Shakur wore in the infamous "California Love" video is up for auction. Provided by Motley Crue frontman, Vince Neil's ex-wife Sharise Neil (with a letter of authenticity), you can look as cool as the West Coast legend, for a price, of course. Right now, the hat is going for over $3,000 and has more than three days left on the auction. So get your money up, if you have any "ambitionz az a ridah." (Complex)
Along with the cap, the ex-wife is throwing in a few more little goodies.
Billed as "possibly the finest peice [sic] of hip-hop memorabilia to ever hit the open market," the Biltmore Imperial hat comes complete with a notarized letter of authenticity from Neil, as well as a ticket stub from a trip she took to Cabo San Lucas where she met Shakur, Suge Knight, and Snoop Dogg. That trip was mentioned in another Tupac song, "Heaven Ain't Hard 2 Find," which Neil believes is about her. (AV Club)
The bid has now reached $5,363 and will expire by this weekend.
Due to Shakur's early and unfortunate passing in 1996, worn/signed items of his are incredibly scarce and collectible with an ever growing fan base. This item glorifies what many believe to be one of Shakur's best songs on his bestselling album, "All Eyez on Me." Accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from Iconic Memorabilia and a notarized affidavit from Sharise Neil. (Iconic Memorabilia)
Last year, the late rapper's Juice movie contract landed on the eBay auction block.
eBay is the largest online auction site with thousands of items being bought and sold on a daily basis. It's when the rare items goes up for auction, that people begin talking. Recently, the contract for the late Tupac Shakur to appear in the 1992 film Juice popped up on the eBay marketplace. The contract is currently listed for $6,500 as a Buy It Now auction with potential buyers being allowed to submit offers for this one of a kind piece of elusive Tupac memorabilia. This particular contract is special for its connection to Shakur, who was shot and killed back in 1996. Having his signature on the document only adds to the value of the memorabilia. (XXL Mag)
