Read Tupac Shakur’s Shocking, Never-Before-Seen Liner Notes From ‘The Don Killuminati’ Album
Another day, another auction centered on a belonging of the late, great Tupac Shakur. On Wednesday (April 4), the folks at Gotta Have Rock And Roll uploaded screenshots of unreleased liner notes from the rapper's acclaimed first posthumous, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, and like much of the project, they contain plenty of shots at East Coast rappers.
Written in a sarcastic tone, 'Pac's notes "thank" rappers like Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Mobb Deep, De La Soul and more. He throws shade at media personalities like Wendy Williams and Donnie Simpson.
"I dedicate this 2 Jack 'the snitch' Agnant for ordering the hit, 2 Tut for shootin me, 2 Puffy, Big, Stretch, Lil Shawn, Jimmy Henchman & whoever else remained silent while conspiring my downfall," he wrote to begin the letter, referencing East Coast hip-hop luminaries like Puff Daddy (Diddy) and Stretch, who by that time had already been dead for almost a year.
In other parts of the piece, 'Pac disses Hov, The Notorious B.I.G.'s wife, Faith Evans, and Dr. Dre. "Thanks 2 Mobb Deep 4 opening your mouths and letting me squashing ya no record selling asses 2 dust."
From there, Tupac calls Dr. Dre a "closet homo," and "thanks" Nas for allegedly refusing to mind his own business with regards to 'Pacs feuds with other East Coast rappers. He also calls De La Soul "fat washed up bums." There's more where that came from, too.
The auction for these special liner notes begins next Wednesday (April 11), and the entry level bid is $30,000.
