A sex tape featuring the late rapper Tupac Shakur has been sold to a private collector. The owner of the video, which was filmed in 1991, made a point of keeping the tape out of the hands of porn companies. The private collector apparently has no plans to sell the tape or release it to the public.

According to TMZ, Shakur is seen in the video receiving oral sex from a groupie while rapping and dancing along to one of his own unreleased songs. Shakur, who has a cocktail in one hand and a blunt in the other, also throws an arm around Money B from Digital Underground at one point, with no disruption in the action. The rapper was 25 when he died on September 7, 1996, of gunshot wounds in an attack in Las Vegas.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
