“We have handwritten letters and lyrics, unreleased recordings no one has ever heard, to jewellery, his death certificate and more, we have a tremendous amount of Tupac material.

“We also have Tupac’s only nude photograph with copyright too, then many other incredible items.

“We have contracts that Tupac had to sign in prison to personal letters sent to a girlfriend while he was in prison.

“We have one of his gun charms and a photograph of him wearing the charm as a necklace.

“I found this particularly interesting and if I was a collector I would love to own it.

“No one has ever seen anything like this ever before and these are very important items like handwritten lyrics, letters, poetry, bandanas and more.”

Ed added: “There is so much amazing stuff here that has never been seen before and never been released, including a nude photograph.

“The auction was a year in the making and the material came from a wide array of sources.

“With Tupac and other artists the lots come from people very close to him, family and friends – like usual, it’s from people very close to the artist.”
