If you’ve listened to Eminem any amount of time, it’s very evident that he’s a huge fan of Tupac, and has been very influential throughout Marshall Mathers career. Yesterday a rare thank you letter to the late rapper’s mom has reportedly surfaced.
The letter isn’t dated so we’re not sure when it was written, but it’s being reported that Eminem sent the letter to 2pac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, as a thank you for giving the world his spirit and how much of an inspiration the iconic musician gave him to become something from 8-Mile Detroit.
Throughout the letter, Em quotes Pac quite a bit which included “This is who I am! And if you don’t like it, go fuck yourself” – as well as saying “Fuck the world” when he felt he didn’t have courage.
Apart from the letter, there’s also a drawing of the late rapper, giving a rare look into his private drawings that have been on-going since he was 10-year-old.
Check out the letter and drawing below.
