The written lyrics to one of 2Pac’s greatest hits is officially for sale — but the astronomical price might be equivalent to selling your home or maybe an arm and leg.

The very paper that the late rapper wrote “Dear Mama” on is being sold on MomentsInTime.com for the astronomical price of $75,000. It’s three sheets of paper, so basically $25,000 per sheet.

The owner of the company and private collector tells HipHollywood exclusively that he has been getting a “tremendous number of inquiries.” According the company, $75 grand is the perfect asking price for the treasure. “It’s a huge song,” he told us.

The classic track was released on February 21, 1995 and was the third single on his album, Me Against the World. 

Also being sold on the website, the SUV Biggie Smalls was killed in. That price … drum roll … $1.5 million.

Sound off: What would you pay to have the original “Dear Mama” lyrics in your possession?

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
