A concert ticket signed by legendary rapper Tupac Shakur is up for auction.
According to a posting by Nate D. Sanders Auctions, the ticket is from a Digital Underground show on Jan. 31, 1992.
The show from Shakur’s first group occurred two months after he released his debut album, ‘2Pacalypse Now, at the Warfield in San Francisco. The ticket features ”PEACE 2U 2PA” in his writing.
The item has been listed as “Light wear and buckling, overall very good.”
Last year, a ring belonging to the late rapper garnered the highest price paid for a piece of hip-hop memorabilia, selling for over $1 million. After news of the record-breaking purchase broke, it was revealed that Drake owns this precious jewelry.
The ring was inscribed with “Pac & Dada 1996.” Dada (Kidada Jones—Quincy Jones’ daughter, then Tupac’s fiancée). They had recently gotten engaged before the entertainer was shot in Las Vegas after attending a Mike Tyson fight on Sept. 7, 1996. Shakur died Sept. 13.
One of the men who is accused of being involved in the killing of the “All Eyez On Me” recording artist, Keefe D, is preparing to go on trial for his alleged involvement. He denies being the culprit but wrote in a book, Compton Street Legend, that the killing of the “Me Against the World” lyricist was done by his nephew, Orlando Anderson, who was killed two years later. Anderson was seen on surveillance video having an altercation with the entertainer before the “All Eyez On Me” emcee died.
