The understanding that Tupac Shakur’s family will never allow his image or likeness to be used commercially has not stopped a drink manufacturing company from offering a cool million for the song which features in the newly unearthed sex tape of the deceased rapper.
Following news that such a sex tape – in which Tupac apparently received oral sex while a previously unreleased track of his is heard to playing in the background – exists, two porn companies are allegedly throwing around offers for the footage, while the drink company NOHO want the music to use in their hangover-fighting tonic commercials.
NOHO’s offer will be thwarted, however, by Tupac’s family who are quite clear on the notion that they “will sue anyone who tries to sell a Tupac tape”.
Tupac Amaru Shakur – who has been named by Rolling Stone as one of the “100 Immortal Artists Of All Time”, and is widely regarded as one of the most influential rappers of all time – has been the subject of numerous documentaries following his tragic drive-by shooting in 1996.
Conspiracy theories still abound, and no one has ever been charged with his death. The connection between Tupac and fellow-rapper Biggie Smalls death, while investigated, is still one of the most compelling unsolved mysteries in modern pop culture.Write a Letter to the Editor
