When it comes to collecting signatures in the future, possibly no other artist holds more up-side than West Coast Hip-Hop legend Tupac “2Pac” Shakur. His image & allure is still untouchable even 15+ years after his tragic death in Las Vegas. For 9 months in 1995, Tupac served time in the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York on sexual assault charges. Shortly after beginning his sentence, he released his third studio album "Me Against the World", becoming the first and only artist to ever have a number one hit while in prison. Two months before his release, on August 15, 1995, Tupac sent this envelope, written entirely in his hand, to close friend and love interest Desiree Smith. The envelope measures 8" x 11" and includes Tupac's full name and return address at the correctional facility, including his prisoner number 95A1140; Smith's entire New York address; a note from Tupac to the post office - "Please don't bend"; and normal postmarking (dated August 15) as well as a Clinton Correctional Facility Stamp. 'Pac has also sketched and colored the decorative hearts around the envelope, as well as executed the elaborate "To" before beginning the address of Smith. Overall in fine condition with expected handling wear from mailing, including wear to Tupac's name and prisoner number in the top return address line. Due to his untimely death in September of the following year, handwritten pieces by Tupac are extremely rare on the market and are only expected to go up in value, and this commemoration from his time in prison should not be overlooked. Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from James Spence Authentications (JSA).
