This Piece Of 2Pac History Will Cost You A Lot Of Money

This is quite an expensive letter.

How much would you pay for a piece of rap history?

A 1995 Tupac Shakur jailhouse letter is being sold for $225,000 at an auction, according to Complex.

The handwritten letter to former Death Row Uncut editor Nina Bhadreshwar is also a lengthy one.

"He enclosed a five-page essay on his view of the rite of passage of a young black male in America," Bhadreshwar said in a statement, according to the report. "And that was the beginning of our real correspondence."

Pac -- who died in 1996 -- reportedly wrote this while in jail on sexual assault charges. “Thug Life to me is dead," he said in the piece, as per Page Six. "If it’s real, then let somebody else represent it, because I’m tired of it."

Those wishing to purchase the letter can do so via Moments In Time, a website that calls itself "one of the nation’s leading autograph dealers."

A portion of the letter can be seen below, via HipHopDX.

Tupac's jailhouse letters have been seen before. In 2004, MTV News reported on "Inside A Thug's Heart," a book that collected some of the MC's letters to a woman named Angela Ardis.

Earlier this year, another Tupac-releated letter made headlines. Eminem's (neatly written) note to 'Pac's mom showed Shady fans how important the Cali MC was to hip-hop and to Slim in particular. It also acted as an example of Em's neat penmanship and art skills. You can check that letter out here.

MTV News reached out to Moments In Time about the auction and who the proceeds will be given to. We did not hear back at press time.
