Attention all music fans and collectors! Get ready for the upcoming auction of a lifetime. GottaHaveRockandRoll is set to hold an auction from Oct. 25 to Nov. 10 that will feature never-before-seen mugshots of two iconic rap legends, Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. But that’s not all! The auction will also include clear footage of Biggie’s final performance, recorded on December 26, 1996, during the Sting festival in Kingston, Jamaica.
It’s hard to believe that even after decades since their untimely deaths, the legacies of Tupac and Biggie still hold immense value and intrigue. These rare items are sure to attract massive bids and fetch millions of dollars.
Let’s start with the footage of Biggie’s last show. The “One More Chance” rapper took to the stage in a wheelchair, leg still in a cast, following a car accident with Lil Cease behind the wheel. Little did anyone know that this would be Biggie’s final live performance before his tragic murder on March 9, 1997. While grainy footage of the event has circulated on the internet for years, GottaHaveRockandRoll guarantees that the auction winner will receive the original video with full copyright. This exclusive footage will undoubtedly be a priceless addition to any music collection.
But that’s not all you’ll get in this extraordinary auction. The winning bidder will also receive a copy of the agreement Biggie signed with Sting to join the festival lineup. Biggie’s Jamaican heritage on his mother’s side made this performance all the more special to him. In fact, promoter Isaiah Laing recalls how Biggie immediately requested “the good ganja weed” upon his arrival. He also enjoyed a pleasant stay at the renowned Jamaica Pegasus Hotel. Possessing this memento of Biggie’s connection to his roots and his passion for music will truly be a remarkable acquisition.
Now, let’s talk about the never-before-seen mugshots of Tupac and Biggie. Tupac’s original mugshot, taken with a Polaroid camera, has never been released to the public. As a result, it’s estimated to sell for a staggering $20,000 to $40,000. On the other hand, Biggie’s mugshot comes with a signed thank you note from jail. This unique piece of memorabilia is predicted to attract a similar amount to Tupac’s mugshot. Collectors and fans alike will undoubtedly jump at the opportunity to own these pieces of rap history.
It’s worth noting that a retired Vegas detective recently testified before a grand jury, sharing his belief that the murders of both Tupac and Biggie are connected to the same individuals. This theory has resurfaced in light of the recent arrest of Duane “Keefe D” Davis for Tupac’s murder. With law enforcement considering him the last living suspect in Biggie’s 1996 slaying, any collectibles associated with the two rappers become even more valuable and significant.
If you’re a serious music fan or an avid collector, mark your calendars for this extraordinary auction. GottaHaveRockandRoll’s upcoming event promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own rare and exclusive pieces of Tupac and Biggie’s legacies. Don’t miss out on this chance to own a piece of rap history, as these items are sure to sell for millions. Get ready to place your bids and make history!
