Tupac Shakur has always had a way with words.
If you need further proof, a love letter that he wrote in high school has recently surfaced and it is as much adorable as it is poetic.
“As u will soon find out, I do not spare words, I say what I feel,” a vulnerable and brave Pac wrote. “So if something I say scares u please don’t panic because I tend 2 get over emotional. My heart usually leads me 2 fast and that’s probably why I always get hurt. So if it ever seems as though I’m moving 2 fast, please slow me down!”
The letter has come to light as the woman that the late legend wrote it for is also the one who has decided to put it up for sale — and for the price of $35,000 no less.
Pac nicknamed his muse Beethoven because of her piano skills and clearly was inspired by her when the two were in high school together.
As reported, the woman didn’t fully return the favor as Tupac’s career grew.
“I didn’t know the man who tattooed ‘Thug Life’ on his chest and who was gunned down on a Las Vegas street,” she said, according to Vibe. “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.”
