An ex-girlfriend of the late Tupac Shakur is reportedly trying to sell a photo of the rapper’s penis for $7,500 (£6,359).
Shakur – best known by his rap name 2Pac – passed away in 1996 at the age of 25. This intimate photo is said to have been taken at a house party in 1990 in Marin County, California.
An unnamed woman is now attempting to sell the explicit photo to a private buyer via the Gotta Have Rock And Roll auction house. She is seeking $7,500, but is willing to let the picture go to the highest bidder.
TMZ reports that Shakur “frequently” exposed his genitals to “try to shock his pals” and that, on this occasion, his girlfriend at the time “threatened to snap a photo if he didn’t cover up”, resulting in this image on sale. TMZ have published a censored version of the photo in question.
The woman also claims to have other photos of a clothed Shakur from the party.
Tupac was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year by his friend Snoop Dogg.
During his speech, Snoop described Tupac as the “greatest rapper of all time” and described the “human” qualities of Shakur.
Dogg spoke of 2Pac as “many different things at once. Hardheaded and intellectual, courageous and afraid, revolutionary and… oh yeah, don’t get it fucked up, gangsta.”
