Delrey Richardson has a rare photo of Tupac for sale in the NFT space
Popular producer Delray Richardson is selling a rare pic of the late Tupac he took 14 days before the rapper's tragic murder in 1996. Previously speaking to The Baltimore Sun, Richardson detailed that he was showing his friends around Los Angeles when he spotted Pac's customized Hummer. He had previously worked with the legendary rapper and had a friendly relationship with him. He requested to take a photo for his friends and Shakur obliged.
One of Richardson's friends asked Pac, also known as 2Pac, for a moment but he couldn't get out of the vehicle because of traffic. The person then asked Tupac how many times he was shot during the Manhattan incident in 1994. Pac answered “five” while showing five fingers, the moment at which the photo was taken.

Richardson is not only selling Pac's pic, he is also auctioning an old video of Michael Jordan intervening in a fight between his bodyguard and a gang member during a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
“If Beeple's 5000 day's NFT sold for $69,000,000, then 1/1 ultra-rare NFT's of Tupac Shakur & Michael Jordan is surely worth $2,500,000 or more,” Richardson told HotNewHipHop via email.
