Get your hands on a piece of hip-hop history. Tupac and Biggie’s arrest fingerprints are hitting the market, available for an eye-watering $225,000 (around £185,000) each at Momentsintime.com.
Tupac Shakur’s fingerprint documents, which list him under his real name Lesane Parish Crooks, are from his 1995 arrest. The rapper served nine months of his 1.5-year sentence after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a female fan.
Biggie’s fingerprint documents also list him under his real name Christopher Wallace and are part of a 1995 arrest where he was booked for a robbery and aggravated assault charge in Pennsylvania. While the assault charges remained, the robbery charges were later dismissed.
Despite their legal troubles, Tupac and Biggie’s impact on hip-hop is undeniable, shaping the genre for years to come and in particular influenced gangsta and freestyle sub-genres, making them icons.
These items may be expensive, but for any collector or fans, they are collectables that they would not want to miss out on.
