Tupac Sex Tape Garners Million Dollar Bid For Audio Only


The bidding war for the Tupac sex tape has just escalated insanely.  Website TMZ reported on Sunday that a new offer has been made at a million dollars.  Not only that but the offer is only for the rights to the unreleased Tupac track in the video not for the actual video itself.

TMZ reports that the CEO of NOHO, an anti-hangover drink wishes to acquire the rights to the song playing in the background of the Tupac sex tape in order to use it as the official theme of his company.

If NOHO purchases the rights to the unreleased song, they would be undertaking significant risk as the tape is very short in length and its audio quality would be dubious at best.  Of course, the song wouldn't be the only audio on the tape, so other sound such as speaking and background noise would have to be cut out.  One has to assume that the result would be mostly unusable.

In addition, the bidder hasn’t even seen the tape nor heard the song.  Only TMZ and the tape’s owner have viewed the contents of the infamous tape.

Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur has threatened to sue anyone who purchases her son’s sex tape.

A spokesperson for Tupac’s estate stated “We will sue anyone who tries to sell a Tupac tape.  Only the estate has the power to authorize the use of Tupac's image for commercial use, and there's NO WAY the sex tape will ever get the proper approval.”

No comment has been made as to purchase the tape for sole use of the Tupac’s unreleased song.
