After 2pac died, Eminem wrote a heartfelt letter to 2Pac’s mom Afeni Shakur, and also included a pen sketching of the late emcee.
In the writing, he thanks Afeni for supporting him throughout the years and tells her how much he appreciates her son’s music. Basically, the final sentence says it all.
- When I was feeling at my worst; (before fame, before Dre) I knew I could put that “Tupac” tape in, and suddenly things weren’t so bad. He gave me the courage to stand up and say, ‘F*** the world!’ ‘This is who I am! And if you don’t like it, go f*** yourself!’”
Read the entire letter below. Also, Em mentions a drawing of Tupac he crafted himself. You can view it at the foot of the article.
