Late hip-hop mogul Tupac Shakur reportedly has a love letter on the open bidding market worth up to $25,000.
New reports claim Goldin Auctions has the letter now available at should ignite thousands in bids.
The explicit letter was handwritten by Tupac and features lines like, “Ever been tied to a bedpost and licked like a lollipop?” ‘Pac laid down the prose while doing time in 1995, and he says it’s in response to a “passionate letter” a woman had sent him.
He mentions blindfolds, bubble baths, oily massages and “12 positions of lovemaking” … but you really have to read the way he puts it all together. We’re guessing he paid the recipient a visit verrry shortly after getting out of the joint. (TMZ)
Last month, Tupac landed into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2017.
The six performer inductees announced Tuesday reflect a wide reach in time and style, ranging from Joan Baez, who began her folk career in the early 1960s, to Pearl Jam, a leader of the Seattle grunge sound, and the late rapper Tupac Shakur, who released hit albums in the 1990s. The three other inductees include two English bands, Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and Yes, which broke through in the early 1970s, and San Francisco-based Journey, which scored its biggest hits, including the anthemic Don’t Stop Believin’, in the 1980s.

Pac’s selection came at the hands of fans and a mixture of music influencers.
Artists must have released their first recording at least 25 years ago to be eligible for nomination. The inductees are chosen by fans and by an international body of some 800 artists, historians and members of the music industry who are asked to consider musical influence, innovation, and length and depth of career.

Back in October, rap veteran Ice Cube weighed-in on Pac’s prestigious nomination.
“Hey man, I think we need to our own hall of fame, to be honest. But 2Pac definitely needs to go into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. [If he doesn’t get in the first year,] I don’t think it matters as long as he gets in.” (TMZ)
