Tupac Shakur Poem Hits Auction
After 26 years in a private collection, an old Tupac Shakur poem titled “All Eye Was Lookin 4″ is going up for sale for $95,000, via the auction house Moments in Time.
The poem, which dates Aug. 26, 1995, is addressed to his former lover, Simi, and, according to legend, is the inspiration behind his famous “All Eyez on Me” record, which came out in ‘96.
Tupac’s patented rhyme scheme is littered throughout the poem as he tells the story of he and Simi falling and love and where he saw them ending up.
This is also not the first time a poem of Tupac’s has gone for sale. Another love letter sold for $35,000 in 2016 and one written while in prison hit the market at $25,000 in 2017.
