    Tupac Shakur’s Ring Is ‘Most Valuable Hip-Hop Artifact Ever’ & Bids Over $1 Million

    Tupac Shakur‘s ring from his final public appearance at the 1996 MTV Video Music Awards has become the most valuable Hip Hop artifact ever sold at auction, fetching an unprecedented $1,016,000. The custom gold, ruby, and diamond crown piece was meticulously designed by Tupac himself and holds significant sentimental value as it represents a period of time that is a testament to his enduring influence on Hip Hop.

    The ring is engraved with ‘Pac and Dada, 1996,’ referencing his relationship with Kidada Jones, and is said to be inspired by his affinity for Niccolo Machiavelli’s political manifesto, The Prince.

    This is not the first time Tupac’s personal items have been auctioned off. In 2019, a break-up letter he wrote to Madonna in January 1995 while in jail was also auctioned off. Despite Madonna’s attempts to block the sale, the letter was still auctioned by Gotta Have Rock and Roll auctioneers. In the letter, Tupac expressed his thoughts on race and perception, indicating the complexities of his personal life and image.

    Tupac Shakur remains an iconic figure in the world of Hip Hop, and his artifacts hold immense historical and cultural significance, making them highly sought-after by collectors and fans alike.
