Now, what happens when the 'rap god' reaches out to the king's mother?

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 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!"
