It's been 20 years since rapper Tupac Shakur was hot & killed in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996 at the tender age of 25 years old. To date he is still known to be one of the best rappers to ever live, but beyond just being a music artist he was  visionary who used his music to make change & speak on sensitive topics that many were too afraid to speak about. 

A love not that he wrote to a classmate in high school is currently being sold for $35,000 via a memorabilia dealer according to TMZ. The girl who received the heartfelt letter was in drama class with the rapper who was given the nickname "Beethoven" because she knew how to play the piano. In the letter Tupac shared his feelings for the girl along with the heartbreak that he felt during that time. The things that makes this not even more special is that it was handwritten back in 1988 before he went on to become a hip-hop star that would change the face of rap music.

Read the letter after the jump.

Tupac may have been known to be a hardcore rapper who spoke truth & delivered his messages with profanity, but obviously judging by this letter he had a soft side that many did not have the pleasure of experiencing.

" As will soon find out, I do not spare words, I say what I feel. So if something I say scares u please don't panic because I tend 2 get over emotional." writes Tupac

The one selling the love letter is the woman who received it may years ago. She also has a letter that allegedly goes into details about the relationship that she once shared with Shakur. 

"I did not know the man who tattooed "Thug Life" on his chest and who was gunned down on a Las Vegas street. I never really cared for the music he recorded it was nothing like those freestyles in front of our school. I knew the kid who loved Prince, and candles and had a broken heart."
