“Some of the highlights on the hard drive include a 35-second clip from a never-released song – which is incredibly rare in Tupac’s recording history,” reads the very description. “The photos and videos bring you to life Tupac from the mid- to late ’90s and are some of the most intimate media of him that exists.”
The song in question is a never-before-heard version of ‘Let’s Get It On (Ready 2 Rumble)’, which was played in Mike Tyson’s Bruce Selden fight, which 2Pac participated in before his assassination on September 13, 1996.
