A pair of diamond-encrusted Death Row pendants Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg once dangled around their necks are going up on the auction block … along with other hip hop treasures tied to Suge Knight‘s old empire.
GottaHaveRockAndRoll.com tells TMZ Hip Hop … the consigner got their hands on the latest round of rap memorabilia from Reggie Wright Jr. — the former head of Death Row security — who’s been sharing his recollection of the label’s heyday for years.
We’re told Suge commissioned separate sets of Death Row chains that he would loan to his artists — the 14kt “Fully Iced” pendant was reserved for the big dogs like Pac and Snoop, and is expected to go for somewhere between $500K and $1 million. Some partial diamond pendants are estimated to go for $200K – $500K.
Tupac’s 1996 SNL performance envelope and personalized ticket are also up on the auction block with an estimated value between $8K and $12K.
The online bidding starts today and will end November 10 in conjunction with Gotta Have Rock and Roll’s celebration of hip hop’s 50-year history.
Death Row Records’ revival has been all the rage this year.
Snoop bought the label last year and Suge’s been sharing his version of events with TMZ Hip Hop … and will do even more on his ‘Collect Call’ podcast at the end of the month.
