On Saturday (April 1), the former NFL MVP was spotted mouthing ‘Pac’s controversial diss record after a performance from The Chainsmokers. The California native even threw up a “W” to punctuate his 30-second rendition.
In a 2016 interview with Complex News, Rodgers spoke on his affinity for the “Hail Mary” rapper. When asked about what he listens to during his pre-game warm-ups, Rodgers said, “Usually slower stuff. I like to keep my mind very calm. I will throw in some Tupac in there.”
As far as Tupac is concerned, more memorabilia from the late star is being placed on sale. According to Pitchfork, a bevy of artifacts from his illustrious career are going up for auction. Black Heritage Auction is selling his publishing contract, his California license plates, his personal copy of the Qur’an, and most notably, the diamond nose stud that he wore on the cover of his 1996 double-disc album All Eyez on Me. The bidding is expected to begin at $15,000 to $20,000 for the stud.
Last March, his handwritten lyrics for “Keep Ya Head Up,” “Point the Finga” and “Break ‘Em Off Something” hit the auction block via memorabilia seller Moments in Time. (The Afeni Shakur estate recently filed several lawsuits against Moments In Time, stating that the party did not have the rights to ownership and sell.)
