If the Pedestrian office’s response to this news story this morning is anything to go by, there are two types of people in the world. Those who remember/know of that time Tupac Shakur dated Madonna, and those who are simply shook to discover such a pairing even existed.


You, maybe.
Regardless of what camp you’re in, buckle up for some fresh goss regarding the famous 90s couple, with a newly unearthed letter Tupac wrote whilst in prison for assualt in 1995, detailing exactly why the dearly departed rapper ended it with the Queen of Pop and it turns out a lot of it had to do with the fact Madonna is a white woman.
TMZ have gotten their hands on the full letter (course they have), written to Madonna one year before Shakur was gunned down in his car, and it discusses his feelings around being a black musician dating a famous white woman:


“For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardize your career, if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting. But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my ‘image’ I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was.”

The heartfelt letter goes on to offer an apology for things he’d previously said and confirms his renewed friendship:


“As you can see I have grown both spiritually and mentally. It no longer matters how I’m perceived. Please understand my previous position as that of a young man with limited experience with a extremely famous sex symbol. I offer my friendship once again time this time much stronger and focused.”

The touching document is set to go up for auction at the end of the month with speculation it will for go for a fricken’ insane $170k.
