The late performer wrote the note to a woman he nicknamed “Beethoven” because she was gifted at playing the piano.The two met in drama class at Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, Calif, where they studied Shakespeare.
The still unnamed highschool crush reminisced about the late rapper saying:
“He was good, I mean really good,” she wrote in a letter on the auction site. “When Tupac’s turn came, suddenly you understood what we were reading. He took something as difficult as Shakespeare and gave it such a contemporary voice.”
Even though Tupac told the mysterious “Beethoven” they had a lot in common their romance was short-lived and ended after he dropped out of high school and became famous.
“The second and last time I saw him and I was driving out of Marin City and he was in a car,” she wrote. “He leaned his head out the window and yelled my name as he reached out and waved to me enthusiastically.”
“I didn’t know that man who tattooed “Thug Life” on his chest and was gunned down on a Las Vegas Street,” she said, referencing his 1996 murder. “I never really cared for the music he recorded — it was nothing like those freestyles I remember in front of our school. I knew the kid who made me understand Shakespeare and who didn’t care that he dressed different or wore his hair different.”
The letter is to be sold for $35,000 on the memorabilia site Moments In Time, news outlets reported.
