Tupac Estate Announces Launch of ‘Tupac Poetry Collection’
The estate of late rap legend Tupac Shakur has announced the launch of an exclusive, limited edition capsule called, Tupac Poetry Collection, just in time to close out National Poetry Month.
The launch event takes place at VFiles tomorrow (April 26) in Manhattan, and will also include a special edition of Pass the Aux, which is an "open mic opportunity for the VFILES community of artists."
The Tupac Poetry Collection aims to "honor the late artist’s revolutionary work." It will include a curation of the late rapper's poetry and verses "which confronted a variety of social injustices and personal struggles."
In other Pac news, the long battle over his breakup letter to Madonna is now over. On Monday (April 23), a judge ruled that the late rapper’s note to the pop icon can be sold at auction. Madonna had filed an injunction to block the auction of an "intensely personal" breakup letter that Pac wrote to her when he was in prison in 1995. Last year before the lawsuit, the opening bid for the 2Pac letter was $100,000. Interested bidders can place their offers again in July when the letter hits the auction block again.
