This Is The Touching Letter That Eminem Wrote To Tupac’s Mother…

Within the space of 25 years, Tupac managed to influence millions of people around the world. So as this year marks the 20th anniversary of his death, I thought it may be appropriate to share the heartwarming letter which Eminem wrote to Tupac’s mother.

Writing to his mother, Afeni Shakur, Eminem said:

“When I was feeling at my ‘worst’ (before fame, before Dre), I knew I could put that ‘Tupac’ tape in and, suddenly, things weren’t so bad. He gave me the courage to stand up and say, ‘Fuck the world! This is who I am! And if you don’t like it, go fuck yourself.”

The letter is now on display at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the arts. Besides it stands a sketch that Eminem drew of his inspiration.

Tupac was shot after seeing Mike Tyson at a boxing match in 1996. He sadly passed away 6 days later in hospital. Rest in peace.
