Published October 5, 2015

Every year, there’s always a plethora of 2Pac-related news or rare paraphernalia that hasn’t been discovered before.

Today’s latest from the late rapper is an unearthed written letter to a Death Row employee, according to TMZ. It is five pages long and reads like a diary entry, where ‘Pac declares Thug Life is dead, and gets emotional about some of the things that have been said about him in the news. This particular letter was written in 1995, which was a time when he was in jail for rape.


But the letter is more than just a confessional. He talks about growing up in the streets and how he came up under mentors who taught him the art of surviving. “There were no rules or road maps in thug life. Just game and ambition. I believed I had both so I played this game of life the only way I knew how, 4 keeps!”

There are plenty more ‘Pac gems just like that. While you can read it in full here, the letter is actually being auctioned off by a memorabilia site called Moments in Time. You have a chance to own it. The fixed price is $225,000, but you can already guess this price will go up quickly.
