Fingerprint Memorabilia

The fingerprints of rap legends Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. are up for grabs as they hit the auction scene with a hefty price tag. 

The remarkable journey of the two late hip-hop legends continues to captivate fans and collectors alike. Now, two extraordinary items from these rap legends have made their way to the market, ready to find new homes. 

The memorabilia listed on momentsintime.com consists of fingerprints procured from arrest reports, shedding light on previously untold chapters of Tupac and Biggie’s lives.

Incarcerated In 1995: Tupac

Tupac’s fingerprint piece originates from his arrest in 1995, during which he was incarcerated for sexual assault. Under his real name, Lesane Parish Crooks, the infamous rapper spent inmate months behind bars at the Clinton Correctional Facility. 

These fingerprints, forever etched on the arrest report, offer a tangible connection to Tupac’s tumultuous past and the consequences he faced.

Incarcerated In 1995: Biggie

Similarly, Biggie’s fingerprints stem from his arrest in 1995, encompassing charges of robbery and aggravated assault. Although the robbery accusations were ultimately dropped, this moment in the late rapper’s life left an indelible mark. 

The fingerprints presented in this auction item encapsulate the essence of Biggie’s troubled past and the legal trials he endured.

With a starting price of $225,000 each, these artifacts are expected to attract significant attention. However, the final sale price could skyrocket, considering the eagerness of devoted fans and prominent collectors eager to own a piece of rap history.

Tupac Shakur’s Rare Prison ID & Booking Photo Hit The Auction Block

The late rap icon Tupac Shakur’s memorabilia is again in the spotlight. Two rare items, including his prison ID card and booking photo from his 1995 incarceration at Clinton Correctional Facility, have hit the auction block, available for sale online.

Up For Auction

Tupac Shakur continues to auction off. Now, two rare items from his past are making headlines as they go up for auction. 

These items include the late rap legend’s prison ID card and his booking photo, both of which were obtained during his incarceration at Clinton Correctional Facility in 1995 when he was serving time after being convicted of sexual abuse. The items are now up for sale at Momentsintime.com.

The auction provides an opportunity for fans to own a tangible piece of Tupac’s history, with the photo carrying a price tag of $35,000 and the prison ID going for $75,000. As an added bonus, the eventual buyer will also receive a note penned by Tupac himself when he requested a replacement for his lost ID card. 

The note bears his signature and a simple message: “I lost my ID and need a new one. Thank you.”

Rap History In High Demand?

It is worth noting that these items were initially given to a family member of the late All Eyez On Me artist upon his release from prison. Over the years, they have changed hands among collectors before ending up with the current seller. 

This isn’t the first time Tupac’s prison ID has garnered attention; another one of his ID cards was auctioned off for $30,000 in 2019, following an initial bid of just $2,000.

Interestingly, this recent auction follows an earlier sale in which mugshots of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. were up for grabs. It seems that pieces of rap history are increasingly in demand among collectors and fans alike, eager to own a tangible connection to these renowned artists.

Rare Collectibles: Never-Before-Seen Mugshots Of The Notorious B.I.G. & Tupac Hit The Auction Block

Classic collectibles from the late rap legends, The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur, are set to go up for auction, including never-before-seen mugshots. The hip-hop auction organized by “Gotta Have Rock and Roll” will showcase many priceless memorabilia from the golden rap era. 

Remembering Legends

The highly-anticipated hip-hop auction organized by “Gotta Have Rock and Roll” is slated to kick off on October 25, showcasing an array of priceless memorabilia from the golden era of rap. Enthusiasts can bid on remarkable items such as signed albums from iconic groups like N.W.A. and the Beastie Boys

However, the event’s highlight is undoubtedly the exclusive collection of artifacts connected to the two rap legends. Among these coveted items are never-before-seen mugshots of both legendary artists.

 The mugshot of Tupac was captured on October 12, 1995, at the Clinton Correctional Facility, marking the day he was released on bail. Conversely, Biggie’s mugshot, taken in 1996, raises questions regarding the specific incident it relates to.

Thank You Letters

In addition to the mugshots, the auction includes a thank you note from Biggie to a person named “Megan,” expressing gratitude for a phone call. 

Similar appreciation was extended to someone named “Teddy” on another occasion. These unique glimpses into the lives of the rap icons offer a profound connection for fans and collectors.

Anticipation surrounds the potential sale prices for these one-of-a-kind items. The rare mugshots of Biggie and Tupac are expected to fetch between $20,000 to $40,000 each, reflecting the immense value placed on preserving their legacy. Adding to the excitement, footage from Biggie’s final performance in Jamaica is estimated to reach $1 million.

Tupac’s BMW

In another auction of notable hip-hop memorabilia, the black BMW in which Tupac was fatally shot generated immense interest and bidding, reaching as high as $1.75 million in August 2023. This high-profile sale emphasizes the enduring fascination with items connected to the rap icon.

Another development related to the mysteries surrounding Tupac’s death involves the recent arrest of Duane “Keefe D” Davis for his alleged involvement in the murder. A resurfaced clip in 2008 features Keefe D claiming that he was in the car during the shooting and implicating Diddy in the incident.

YNW Melly’s Murder Trial 

While Keefe D remains in custody in relation to the murder of Tupac, another musician, YNW Melly, is currently embroiled in a murder case of his own. The 24-year-old rapper from Florida faces accusations of killing his two friends in October 2018. Despite a mistrial in his first trial, Melly managed to avoid the death penalty as the legal proceedings continued.
