One of the pivotal moments of hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur’s life and career was his prison stint. He was locked up in Clinton Correctional Institute in Dannemora, NY, when he was convicted for first-degree sexual assault in 1993, after a woman said that he raped her. During his 9-month bid, Pac’s Me Against The World Album was #1 (the first time anyone scored a #1 album while in prison).
Now, one of Tupac’s possessions from that bid in Clinton is up for sale for big bucks. Tupac’s Bible that he supposedly used while locked up is being sold by MomentsInTime.com for $54,000. The Bible features Pac’s signature, along with his inmate number, “95A1140.”
“I know his handwriting and it is indisputably his,” MomentsInTime.com spokespman Gary Zimet told Huffington Post. “From a memorabilia standpoint, he’s as big as they come. The original lyrics for ‘Point The Finger’ sold for $32,150.”
