Tupac Shakur is about to be posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, making his personal items more valuable than ever. This attention has triggered several recent lawsuits. The estate of Tupac’s mom is suing an auction house and two individuals who have possession of the items in order to regain the rapper’s passport, driver’s license, clothing, jewelry, and handwritten scripts and lyrics. The lawsuits claims that the individuals who now own the items bought them from third parties who had no ownership rights and therefore no right to sell the possessions.
