Back in high school writing and sending a letter to your crush or boo was the wave. Those notes usually passed in class or in the hallway and these letters usually made or broke a relationship.
Weeks ago, we revealed that more memorabilia of Tupac’s were going on sale. Those notebooks included lyrics and treatments for music videos, but a childhood crush is selling a letter that Pac wrote in high school. The note, which is being sold by a memorabilia dealer called Moments In Time for $35,000, finds a young Tupac Shakur where he calls his crush “Beethoven,” reportedly due to her piano skills.
“As u will soon find out, I do not spare words, I say what I feel. So if something I say scares u please don’t panic because I tend 2 get over emotional.” he writes, “It’s almost like I’ve known you [for] years.”
The woman selling the letter says she met Pac in her drama class, suggesting the rapper ‘s acting was “REALLY good” and that the two bonded over being outsiders. Once he became the rapper known as 2Pac/Tupac, she stopped being a fan.
“I never really cared for the music he recorded – it was nothing like those freestyles I remember in front of our school. I knew the kid who made me understand Shakespeare and who didn’t care that he dressed different or wore his hair different. I knew the kid who loved Prince, and candles and had a broken heart. And the kid who drew birds flying upside down on the nets that he passed in school.”
