Three of Tupac Shakur's notebooks are headed to auction. The notebooks contain lyrics, music videos ideas, and notes. There are also CDs with unreleased tracks up for auction as well. The sale will be handled by Moments in Time, who are also selling Tupac's five-page prison letter, which was valued at over $200k, and is still up for sale. The handwriting in the notebooks has been matched with letter.
Among the notebooks are handwritten lyrics to ""Point the Finga," "16 on Death Row," "It Ain't Easy," "Keep Ya Head Up," "Street Fame," "Thugs Get Lonely Too," "Only Fear of Death," "Who Do You Love?" and "Break 'Em Off Somethin,'" according to Rolling Stone. TMZ reports, "the two-page "Point The Finga" music video notes are expected to pull $35k minimum." However, Moments in Time is yet to put a price on the items.
TMZ said about the items discovery, "We're told the lucky finder got his hands on the items after answering a Craigslist ad for baseball cards. It just so happened the seller had the Tupac merch too ... his dad worked with the rapper for years."
Shakur's family is currently trying to block the sale, and have been known to pursue purchasers of Tupac memorabilia. There has been a stream of Shakur articles hitting the auction block over the past few years.For more on Tupac Shakur, check out:
