A letter written by Tupac Shakur during his 1995 stay at New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility was auctioned off for $172,725.

According to Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions, the winner is famous and beat out a “popular entertainer” to take home a piece of ‘Pac’s legacy. The four-page letter titled “Is Thug Life Dead?” was written to Death Row Records publicist Nina Bhadreshwar on May 6, 1995.

“Sorry it took so long, I did get your first letter and I enjoyed it. It helped my spirit rebuild,”Pac wrote while he was incarcerated for allegedly sexually abusing a fan.

“I did not begin thug life, I just personified it. I couldn’t stop it if I tried but in my heart the thug n—- has advanced 2 be a Boss Playa. So No Thug Life is Not Dead but in my heart it is. If U are sharp u will learn from this. I want all my homeiez 2 realize there is another level it takes heart and courage 2 stand alone face the demons and make a change! We are powerful people but not unless we have power and if we all die we have nothing. No power, no money, no life, nothing.”

Wow!
