A collection of Tupac Shakur original photographs and negatives featuring a graphic nude photograph of Tupac with its original negative. The black rectangle that covers part of the image shown online is not on the actual photograph being sold. Taken at a house party in Marin, California in 1990, the story behind the nude photograph is that Tupac would, on occasion, drop his pants when least expected and catch his friends by surprise. On this particular night, when a friend was about to take group shot, he did it again! She told him that she was going to zoom in if he didn’t pull his pants up fast, but he just smiled at her and didn’t budge. And so, she took the picture! The collection includes a total of six prints and eight negatives. The print showing Tupac nude, and the print showing him just before that photo was taken (the photo of him in the middle with two women, one on either side of him), have negatives that are part of the eight negatives offered here. The negative of the photo that was taken right after the nude shot is part of this collection as well. The seller is transferring copyright. Very good condition. Comes with a letter of provenance and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity.
