Tupac Shakur's Original Thug Life Contract Up For Auction

The paperwork is expected to garner at least $6,000.

(AllHipHop News) The public will have the chance to compete for an artifact once connected to Tupac Shakur. According to TMZ, Heritage Auctions is putting a Thug Life record contract signed by the Hip Hop icon up for bid on April 15.

The website reports:

The 58-page contract from July 24, 1994 is signed by 2Pac and fellow Thug Life members Big Syke (Tyruss Himes), Mopreme Shakur (Maurice Harding), Macadoshis (Diron Rivers) and The Rated R (Walter Burns) ... inking their deal for a collab album with Interscope Records -- "Thug Life: Volume 1." The contract spells out the recording, marketing and financial details of the group's LP, which went gold and sold 500,000 copies in '94 ... but ended up being their only studio album.

The last few years have seen several 2Pac related items hit the auction block. In 2017, the Alexander Historical Auctions sold off the All Eyez on Me creator's handwritten lyrics and jewelry.
