While serving prison time in 1995, Tupac wrote a letter to one of his biggest influences, Public Enemy’s Chuck D. In the letter you can tell how influential Chuck D was to Tupac, and how much it meant to him to have Chuck reach out during his sentence. Throughout the letter Tupac offers Chuck D opportunities to appear on songs, movie roles, and involvement in a charity program Pac was putting together. The album mentioned in the letter, Euthanasia, became All Eyez On Me and did not feature Chuck D or Sister Souljah.
The letter is finally seeing the light of day thanks to a tweet from Chuck D:
