Legendary rapper, Tupac’s nude photo and death certificate going up for auction
By Patricia Uyeh,
If you think the last has been heard of legendary American rapper, TuPac Shakur, then you should have a rethink because this time around, a never-before-seen nude photo of the late rapper and his death certificate is being put up for auction.
According to reports, the nude photo will be available through “Gotta Have Rock and Roll” auction house and the bidding will start off at $15,000.
It was gathered that the photo was snapped by one of Tupac’s ex-girlfriends, who decided to not reveal her identity. However, she did provide details of what happened when the photo was taken.
She said, “This nude photograph of Tupac was taken in 1990 at a house party in Marin County. Always the showman (and jokester!) Tupac would, on occasion, drop his pants when least expected and catch his friends by surprise.”
She continued, “On this particular night, when my camera was about to go off taking a group shot, he did it again! I told him I was going to zoom in if he didn’t move fast and yank his pants up, but he just grinned at me and didn’t budge. Flash! These singular photos capture the playful, spontaneous and uninhibited side of Tupac.”
Asides the nude photo, Tupac’s 1996 death certificate will also be put up for auction, with the bidding starting at $5,000.
