Rapper writes a 'Thank You' letter to Tupac's mum
What happens when a 'rap god' shows gratitude to the king of Thug Heaven? Headlines happen. Greatness happens.
Eminem wrote a letter to Afeni Shakur, the mother of the legendary rapper, Tupac Ammaru Shakur, referring to her as a true queen.
The letter, which first appeared in 2008 in a book, Tupac Remembered, has gone viral, including an image of the legend hand drawn by the Real Slim Shady himself.
He praised her in the letter and talked about how Tupac's tape would assist him through bad times and give him courage.
“He gave me the courage to stand up and say 'Fuck the world!,'” The letter said. "This is who I am! And If you don’t like it, go fuck yourself! Thank you for giving us his spirit, and yours! God Bless you!"
The letter and the image are located in Stone Mountain, Georgia at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts but you can view the picture above and letter below.
