When Tupac Shakur was fatally shot in 1996, he left behind an impenetrable musical legacy. But that’s not all. As reported by TMZ, two love letters ‘Pac wrote to his high school crush in 1985 have surfaced and they’re going for a hefty $15,000.
‘Pac was 14 at the time and a student at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Baltimore.
In the first letter, ‘Pac simply introduces himself to a girl named Averel and seems to be somewhat shy despite telling her he “loves” her.
The tone drastically changes in the second letter and finds an emboldened ‘Pac telling Averel, “I daydream about caressing your graceful and majestic body. My body aches to be loved and to be joined with yours.”
The blossoming wordsmith continues trying to woo her with, “Please don’t deny me of this long awaited pleasure” then ends it with, “Passionately, Tupac (New York) Shakur. P.S. Write back please.”
Autograph dealer Moments In Time currently has the items for sale on its website. The company also has another ‘Pac letter going for $35,000 that is believed to be the earliest known letter the Hip Hop luminary ever wrote.
