While Tupac Shakur was incarcerated for sexual assault in 1995, he used a Bible (The Life Recovery Bible), it will amaze you that the same Bible is being sold for $54,000 on the Internet.
‘Pac apparently signed the Bible with a red marker on the inside cover, and also put his Department of Corrections number, 95A1140.
See photos of the Bible and Pac’s signature below.
‘Pac started his sentence at Clinton Correctional Facility on Feb. 15, 1995 and released his album Me Against The World a short time later, becoming the first artist to earn a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 while incarcerated.
While locked up, ‘Pac also married his long-time girlfriend, Keisha Morris. They divorced a year later.
He gave the prison a shoutout on “Hail Mary” when he rapped “To my homeboys in Clinton Max doing their bid / Raise hell to this real shit and feel this.”
According to TMZ, a member of Tupac’s family handed over the precious item to be sold, though the estate is not behind the sale.
Tupac’s estate has previously criticized the commercial sale of the icon’s property, even threatening legal action after a lyric sheet for “Catchin’ Feelings” went up for sale. So far, no objection to the sale of the Bible.
