The bidding battle began with the framed cover of Tupac Shakur’s album, “The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.”
According to the auction site, the album has become one of the rapper’s most memorable projects. He was released shortly after being shot dead in September 1996.
The cover of “7 Day Theory” was painted by a Frisco, Texas artist named “Riskie Forever.”
According to the painting’s description, Riskie began working with Death Row Records after Suge Knight showed Tupac an art portfolio. He said in an interview that his first day at work was the same day Snoop Dogg was acquitted of murder.
He also said he showed the final cover of “7 Day” to Tupac the day before he was shot.
“It was September 6, 1996, and I went to visit him in Malibu, California, because by then Suge wanted a first draft,” he said. “Pac loved it, he was in a good mood and thanked me for making what was in his head a reality.”
They will be auctioning off the art of Tupac’s album “Don Killuminati”.
