Source - Steiner Auctions says the rare hand-drawings, envelope and card were all created by Tupac in 1995, when he was incarcerated at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY.
Addressed to his girl Desiree Smith, the artwork features a handwritten letter. The picture itself depicts ‘Pac having sex with Smith, and can be viewed here. If you can look past the pure erotic nature of the image, the artwork itself is very impressive. The picture earned ten bids during the auction, finally selling for $21,155.75.The owner is a wealthy gentleman in his Golden Years.
(*Note: I searched the entire internet for a picture of Tupac’s dick, and it doesn’t exist, so don’t ask. There’s only one real picture out there and his hog is blurred out. He had a massive bush too. If you want to check out either of those things click here, otherwise let’s get on with the blog.)
I’ve always been fascinated by artists who continue to make money after they’re dead. I guess it just blows my mind that there are people who are so infuriatingly talented that their work outlives them. I used to think that Tupac was one of those people until I saw his artwork. For a guy who was on lockdown twenty-three hours a day for nine months you’d think he’d be able to come up with something a little less cartoonish. I’m not saying it’s not impressive, I tried to draw a picture of my naked self and came up with this….

I don’t think it’s worth $21,000. Even if I had the money, I’d pay like $5 max mostly because I can find the exact same thing in the card aisle of a Spencer Gifts. Granted you can’t see his dick, which could drastically increase the price, but $21,000 is a bit much even for the most enthusiastic hip hop loyalist. Regardless, I just hope that whoever is in control of his estate gets the money. You never know who the check gets made out to when people’s stuff starts getting auctioned off.
