The bible that Tupac Shakur used in prison while he was incarcerated for sexual assault in 1995 is being sold for $54,000.

The autograph dealer Moments In Time has obtained the Bible, which is the Life Recovery version of the scripture. The description reads: “The Bible Tupac used while incarcerated in Dannemora for rape, signed on the inside front cover with his inmate beneath his signature.”

The rapper started his sentence at Clinton Correctional Facility on February 15, 1995. He released his album Me Against The World a short time later, becoming the first artist to earn a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 while incarcerated.
