Eminem Pens Sentimental Letter to Tupac's Mother

Eminem is revealing how much the late, great rapper Tupac has inspired him. 

The 42-year-old rapper penned a handwritten, sentimental letter to Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, where he calls her a "true queen." Em also expresses how much her son has inspired his whole career. 

Eminem added in the letter, "[2Pac] gave me the courage to stand up and say, ‘F*ck the world! This is who I am! And if you don’t like it, go f*ck yourself!’”

Although both the sketch and letter appeared in the 2008 book Tupac Remembered, interest in the letter and drawing was recently renewed when it appeared on Reddit (via: Fader). 

A citation in the book says the letter and sketch is on display at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts. (via: Rolling Stone)

It is not clear when the letter was written. Read it below and check out Em's hand drawn portrait of Tupac:
