Following the 2017 release of Tupac’s big screen biopic, All Eyez on Me, the personal goods belonging to the fallen rap legend have become an even hotter commodity for hip-hop heads now more than ever.
And now that a newly-uncovered shot of Pac’s most private side is being auctioned off, the words “personal goods” never held truer meaning.
According to Page Six, an X-rated picture of Pac’s genitals went up for sale via Gotta Have Rock and Roll on Wednesday (November 22), an online auction site known for bidding off the most valuable of music legend keepsakes.
The website further reports that his former girlfriend, who’s chosen anonymity, took the racy picture at a California house party in 1990. Those who knew Makaveli best knew his wacky charisma and shock-factor personality, leading him to whip out his member during a group photo at the gathering, Gotta Have Rock and Roll reports. His then-girlfriend warned him to cover up or she’d zoom in on him after snapping the flick. He apparently didn’t take heed, and even smiled at the hilarious threat. Thus, a photo of Pac’s manhood is now up for sale, beginning at $15,000.
“Always the showman (and jokester!) Tupac would, on occasion, drop his pants when least expected and catch his friends by surprise,” Page Six reports of her statement on the picture. “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.”
The photo will reportedly join other nudes on the same auction block that belong to another one of Pac’s former love flames, Madonna, as well as his 1996 death certificate.
Head over to the auction site here to see how up close and personal $15,000 or more will get you with the late hip-hop icon (we won’t judge).
