Tupac Shakur is the icon of the hip hop world. He became an inspiration for many rappers and still has a huge influence on hip hop community.
In 2016, a letter that the rapper penned to his high school crush when he was only 17 went up for auction. It confirmed the enigmatic superstar’s love for Prince.
“‘We both love Prince we have both had heartbreak and we both adore candles,” the rapper wrote to his crush, whom he called Beethoven for her piano playing skills.
2Pac’s cousin, Jamila Barnes revealed in an interview with BETNetworks that it was not the only time 2Pac showed his love to Prince.
“He would have us perform different groups, but his favourite that he would have us perform over and over again, would be Prince and The Revolution, and the main song we always did was ‘1999’. We would sing into a spoon, and he would introduce the ‘band’ in all his Prince glory, fully in character.” – Barnes said.
