Gramercy Pictures/Getty ImagesAlthough the late rapper’s mom Afeni is reportedly trying to block the sale, a treasure trove of unreleased music and handwritten notes believed to be from Tupac Shakur could hit the auction block.
TMZ reports the seller came across the items, consisting of three notebooks and some CDs containing unreleased music — after answering a Craigslist ad for baseball cards. The father of the card seller reportedly worked with the rapper in the years before Shakur’s 1996 murder, and the items have been in his possession since. The scribblings in the notebooks reportedly matches Shakur’s handwriting.
As for how much the Tupac material could fetch, the auction site Moments In Time sold letters penned by Tupac in prison for a quarter of a million bucks.
The same site is handling the new material, which is also expected to bring a pretty penny. One of the included items — notes Tupac reportedly wrote about the video for “Point the Finga” — are on the block for a minimum of 35 grand, notes TMZ.
