You ever cruise around the city, windows down, bumping “Picture Me Rollin'” on full blast? Of course you do — you’re a human being. The real question is: how would you like to bump said song while driving a Hummer originally owned by 2Pac himself?
The West Coast hip hop luminary purchased this customized 1996 Hummer H1 less than a month before his tragic death in a drive-by shooting on September 7th, 1996. Now, it’s being put up for auction with an estimated sale price of $100,000.
Boasting a 6.5-litre, turbo diesel V-8 engine with automatic transmission, ‘Pac had this bad boy loaded up with all sorts of rapper-worthy goodness: 38″ Dick Cepek off-road lights, a 360-degree spotlight, a grille guard, diamond-plate bumpers, GC Package oversized off-road wheels and tires, an external PA system with three sirens, and white lettering over the rear fender that reads “ELIMINATOR.”
As an added bonus, the vehicle also includes 2Pac’s personalized “YAKNPAK” license plate — in honour of the rapper and his late friend Yaki “Prince” Kadafi — as well as his cassette copies of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and his own seminal record All Eyez on Me. Which, come to think of it, is rather appropriate: if you decide to splurge on this sucker, all eyez will most definitely be on you.
