B.I.G’s Iconic Crown and Tupac’s Love Letters are Going to Auction

The iconic crown worn by the Notorious B.I.G. and love letters written by Tupac Shakur are among the items up for sale at the first major hip-hop auction to be held next month in New York.


Fans of Biggie will get the chance to own the crown which was worn and signed by the rapper during a 1997 photoshoot, only three days before he was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles.


Auction house Sotheby’s is expecting it to sell for between $200-300,000 at the event.


Fans of Tupac will get the chance to bid on an archive of 22 autographed love letters written by the rap icon to a high school sweetheartwhen he was a teenager. The letters are estimated to sell for between $60,000-80,000.
