The arrest fingerprints of 2Pac and Biggie Smalls have recently been placed on the auction for huge six-figure sums. The two late rappers were murdered in the late 1990s, and hip-hop fans are looking to get their hands on the MCs’ one-of-a-kind prints.
A California-based autograph broker listed the fingerprints that were obtained from two separate arrests. The 2Pac prints were the result of a 1995 arrest that saw the West Coast legend charged with sexual assault.
Biggie Smalls’ prints were the result of his arrest in 1995 arrest in Pennsylvania for robbery and aggravated assault. The Brooklyn artist’s case eventually got dismissed. However, 2Pac’s case saw him spend an extended period in jail, where he gave various iconic interviews.
The auction house, Moments In Time, offers a “lifetime guarantee of authenticity” on the cards. The cards are currently priced at $225,000 each. There has been a lot of attention surrounding 2Pac’s murder recently following the indictment of his suspected killer, Duane ‘Keefe D’ Davis, in late September.
Keefe D’s trial will face trial in June 2024, and fans are eagerly waiting to see if this 27-year-old case will finally end. Until now, it has been labelled as unsolved and was closed many years ago. However, the culture now wants the emcee (real name Tupac HSakur) to receive justice.
In other news, Shakur hasn’t just been in the news due to the case; a track with him and Biggie Smalls is also circulating the internet. Although 2Pac and the Brooklyn icon never collaborated on a song in their lifetimes, thanks to the magic of AI, they now have a single.
The short audio clip was first released in April. However, since the reopening of his murder case, the 2Pac song featuring The Notorious B.I.G.’s voice has spread like wildfire.
