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.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
