A brand-new auction called “Hip Hop Legends” recently went live, showcasing a selection of rare items linked to prominent names in the hip-hop industry. Eminem, 2Pac, and JAY-Z are among the most celebrated artists whose rare items are put up on the sale.

Gotta Have Rock and Roll, a music memorabilia website, is holding the massive auction to commemorate Hip Hop’s 50th anniversary. Eminem’s stage-worn “Free Yayo” T-shirt and Shady Ltd. jeans are expected to sell for $3,000-$5,000 each.

A red bandana owned and used by the late rapper 2Pac, his “MOB” ring from the music video for “All About U,” and a handwritten note he sent to his girlfriend while imprisoned all came in at about the same price.

Fans of Jay-Z can also seize the opportunity to own a piece of JAY-Z’s personal wardrobe. JAY-Z’s autographed Roca Wear jacket, which he dedicated to reggaeton artist Hector El Father, is available for purchase for a substantial amount of $10,000 to $20,000.


Besides that, there is a signed Capital Punishment CD cover from Big Pun, as well as a handwritten setlist for Snoop Dogg’s 2008 performance at the Mr. Smalls Theatre in Millvale, Pittsburgh. Additionally available for purchase are XXXTENTACION’s handwritten notebook page ($5,000–10,000), Nicki Minaj’s custom-made boots worn during The Pinkprint Tour ($3,000–$5,000), and Drake’s handwritten lyrics from his personal notebook ($1,000–$2,000).

Artifacts from Biggie, Dr. Dre, Nas, DMX, Eazy-E, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Lil’ Kim, Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, and many others complete the enormous collection. Keep an eye on Thirtsy For News to get the latest updates regarding the hip-hop industry.
