The poem is said to be the inspiration behind 'All Eyez On Me'.

After 26 years in a private collection, an old Tupac Shakur poem titled  "All Eye Was Lookin 4" is going up for sale for $95,000, via the auction house Moments in Time.

The poem, which dates Aug. 26, 1995, is addressed to his former lover, Simi, and, according to legend, is the inspiration behind his famous "All Eyez on Me" record, which came out in ‘96.
