The emotional note was written when he was in his early 20s and he was upset over the pop star's refusal to acknowledge their relationship. He dumped her because she was White.
"For you to be seen with a Black man wouldn't in any way jeopardize your career, if anything it would make you seem more open and exciting. But for me, at least in my previous perception I felt due to my 'image' I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought was."
Shakur warned that people were conspiring to dethrone him.
That would eventually lead into the infamous feud between the Notorious B.I.G. and various East Coast rappers.
