Tupac will forever be remembered as one of the most influential and popular rappers to have graced the hip-hop world. Even after almost 26 years since his tragic death, Tupac remains an icon for several generations and is still well-loved. In fact, his unreleased 1992 photos are being auctioned as NFTs.
Rare and unseen photos of 2Pac from 1992 will soon be made available for auction as NFTs. The photos capture the rapper performing at Prince’s Glam Slam West nightclub in Minneapolis and have never been seen before.
The auction will be hosted by MakersPlace and is set to commence on Thursday, February 23, at 3 p.m. EST. Fans of the iconic rapper will have a unique opportunity to own a piece of history with these exclusive NFTs.
The upcoming auction of 2Pac NFTs, named “2Pacalypse92,” features a collection of 17 rare and exclusive photographs of the late rap icon. The pictures were taken by Lawrence “Loupy D” Dotson, the former managing editor of Kronick Magazine. What makes this auction even more unique is that each NFT will come with its original negative, providing collectors with a physical piece of Hip Hop history to complement the digital artwork. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans and collectors to own a piece of 2Pac’s legacy in a tangible and authentic way.
“The atmosphere was hyped,” Loupy D recalled of ‘Pac’s 1992 performance. “The crowd was loving it. He put on a show. He wasn’t just a rapper, he was a performer. He had a theater background. Tupac knew he had to engage the crowd.”
In addition to the upcoming auction of the “2Pacalypse92” NFT collection, a few of the photographs will also be featured in FX’s upcoming docuseries, Dear Mama. The show delves into 2Pac’s relationship with his mother, Afeni Shakur, a former Black Panther activist who passed away in 2016. The inclusion of these rare photos of 2Pac adds an extra layer of depth and insight into his personal life and his connection with his mother, making the NFT auction and the docuseries a must-see for fans of the legendary rapper.
