Tupac’s love letter to Madonna: ‘Never meant to hurt you’

Here at Classic 105, we mark Tupac Shakur’s 23rd death anniversary all week.

Alot was said about the women he dated, and among those was singer Madonna.

Tupac Shakur and Madonna dated briefly in 1994. According to Tupac’s brother Mopreme, the relationship began when Madonna passed Tupac a note during a press day for Above the Rim.

Shortly after he was shot, Tupac was convicted of three counts of molestation as part of an abuse case brought against him in 1993.

While serving time in prison, Tupac wrote a letter to Madonna, where he ended relations with the pop star because of her race. The letter, dated January 15th, 1995 at 4:30 a.m., was verified to be authentic by news outlets including Rolling Stone. In July 2017, Tupac’s letter to Madonna was set to go on auction and was expected to bring in $100,000.

In 2018, Madonna brought a lawsuit against the art consultant and online auction house behind the auction to stop the sale. A judge threw out her suit, citing a release that Madonna signed in 2004. Madonna lost her appeal in appellate court in June 2019. The letter was put on auction in July 2019.

The handwritten apology letter that Tupac wrote to the Material Girl a year before his death is below:

“For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardize your career – if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting,” he wrote. “But for me, at least in my previous perception, I felt due to my ‘image,’ I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. I never meant to hurt you.”

Tupac also apologized.

“Like you said, I haven’t been the kind of friend I know I am capable of being,” he said, adding that he’d “grown both spiritually and mentally” and was no longer the “young man with limited experience with [an] extremely famous se3 symbol.”

Tupac had a strange request in his Will that his friends did it anyway

 

The proceedings for a last will and testament are usually so simple, it boils down to leaving houses to family.

But there are those among us, who are so extra that what they wanted in their wills is unbelievable.

The late rapper 2pac was one man who outdid others.

In Tupac’s song “Black Jesus” he mentioned a final wish of his.

The request was so unusual that his friends immediately agreed to do it.

Coffin

In the song, the rapper expressed a desire for his friends to actually smoke his ashes.

Believe it or not, they actually did. Several of his closest friends mixed his ashes with a joint and smoked it.

Here at Classic 105, we have been celebrating his 23rd death anniversary and we hope you have been listening.

Rest in Peace Tupac.

‘There are people who’ve been raised on Tupac, there are babies who’ve been named after Tupac, and it’s because of what was between his ears. He had a choice to either fail having come from  the ghetto without having a father and all he had was a mothers love but look at the things he did.’
