TUPAC SHAKUR’S PRISON BIBLE IS UP FOR SALE FOR $54,000

The Bible Tupac Shakur used in prison while he was incarcerated for sexual assault in 1995 is being sold for $54,000 on the Internet.
The autograph dealer Moments In Time has obtained the Bible, which is the Life Recovery version of the scripture. The description reads: “The Bible Tupac used while incarcerated in Dannemora for rape, signed on the inside front cover with his inmate # beneath his signature.”

2 Pac apparently signed the Bible with a red marker on the inside cover, and also put his Department of Corrections number, 95A1140.
‘Pac started his sentence at Clinton Correctional Facility on Feb. 15, 1995 and released his album Me Against The World a short time later, becoming the first artist to earn a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 while incarcerated. While locked up, ‘Pac also married his long-time girlfriend, Keisha Morris. They divorced a year later.

Memorabilia from the late rap icon is in high demand. Last month, it was announced that hand-written lyrics from the beloved rapper were up for auction. The lyric sheet is for ‘Pac’s “Catchin’ Feelings” from his posthumous 2002 Better Dayz album. The rare piece of memorabilia was also made available courtesy of the company Moments in Time. MIT owner Gary Zimet tells TMZ that he got the lyrics from an ex-employee of the studio in which ‘Pac laid the track in 1996—the year of his death.

Moments In Time has since been threatened by the estate of Tupac to cease the sale. Shakur’s people believe they are the rightful owners of all of Pac’s original art, and as a result, they think it’s disrespectful to exploit his memory by selling his property.

DRAKE REPORTEDLY WORKED AS SONGWRITER FOR DR. DRE, AFTERMATH RECORDS IN 2005

In a new book by John Seabrook, titled The Song Machine: Inside the Hit Factory, a brief story ofDrake‘s time as an alleged songwriter for Dr. Dre and Aftermath Records pops up, and even includes what’s apparently a quote from Drake regarding that time of his career.It was some of the most strenuous militant shit I’ve ever done. But no useable songs came out of it. When I think of how he worked us, it’s no wonder he didn’t get anything out of it. It was just writers in a room churning out product all day long,” Drake told Seabrook about his time working with Dr. Dre.

DJ Booth conversed with Seabrook about his book’s revelation, and Drake reportedly referred to that time of his life as when he was “like 19,” meaning roughly 2005, which is when The Song Machine says Drake was paid $10,000 and lived in Oakwood Apartments, a known “rite of passage” of sorts for entertainers in their first Hollywood stint.

This just further validates Lil Wayne‘s claim on Drake’s “Ransom” that “me and both Drizzy both wrote on Detox,” and it’s not really that surprising when you think of it. It’s long been documented that there was a time when Dr. Dre was routinely recruiting the youngest, hottest artists in the game to make sure his oft-delayed Detox album didn’t sound like a dated mess when it was finally released–we now know of course that Dre scrapped that album, opting instead to drop Compton: The Soundtrack, a new album he crafted in more recent years with similarly young, hot artists. Still, it would be at least 3 years until Drake began making a name for himself on a national level, and his infamous mixtape-related Grammy nominations didn’t happen until 2010. Dre clearly knew something a lot of other people didn’t.

Also, it’s pretty fitting that as Apple Music began its quest to dominate the streaming world this past June, who were the two music people they threw boatloads of money at to assist? Dr. Dre, and Drake.

Stan Lee Comments On The Falcon Taking Over For Captain America

stan-lee-captain-america-106465

At the Salt Lake Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee was asked about the recent changes to the Avengers, including the Falcon taking over for Captain America.

“He took over for Captain America? Well, that was a temporary thing,” said Lee. “It’s not as though we’ve lost Captain America. I promise you he’ll be back.”

Lee continued, “See, they make all these changes….I understand they’re going to have Spider-Man or rather they’re going to have Gwen Stacy or maybe Mary Jane if she comes back again bitten by a radioactive spider, and you’ll have Spider-Woman. I heard somebody talking about that. I don’t know if that’s true or not.”

Lee went on to offer this explanation of why these type of changes in general are made by publishing companies or movie studios.

“You see, when you have a comic book company, you’re publishing so many books every month, and it’s month after month after month, and you want to keep the readers,” said Lee. “And when you have movies you have one movie after the other, just like the James Bond movie every couple of years. And you have these conferences and you say, ‘What can I do that will surprise the fans and make them want to learn more about the characters?’ So you say, ‘Let’s kill one of them and we’ll bring them back to life,’ or, ‘Let’s take this one who’s an American and make him Chinese.’ I mean anything that they think of that they figure will make the fans talk about it and get interested.”

About Author :

1049068_580054102037983_465780670_o

N. Tarun Krishna is a nineteen year old teenager and an engineering student, with a vision for this world looking right through the windows of perception, where observations are duly connected with passion. Hence he keeps asking himself numerous amounts of questions, an answer to all those questions is this book I WISH I CAN. This book is nothing but for a collection of connections, that journey to the wilderness, established right amongst our presence. A fifteen day journey of life with a different perspective acquired alike a change in vision, journey of a nomad on the sands of time and addiction, where he battles it out on the grounds of affliction, withdrawal and abstinence. Observations were duly made and discernment was so crystal clear, fifteen days felt like almost a year. It all started falling into picture, the rapture of questions like, should I be exploring more space? Started taking its place right in my mind and I realized that life was just a little coin. There’s an other side to every situation, every demeaning condition, all we need is those eyes of perception, to see the truth and imbibe that reality.
This diary of truth is all about that reality, which the author imbibed during his fifteen day period of abstinence from smoking and recognized that only if we can connect to something bigger and better, an idea, a principle, a question that what is life without addictions? Is when we can start getting our most important answers.
