A tragic piece of history is up for sale — the BMW rapper Tupac Shakur was murdered in is selling for $1.5 million.

Shakur died 20 years ago after being shot four times while the BMW was stopped at a red light in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the time, the BMW belonged to Suge Knight, the co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records.

Knight posted Shakur's $1.4 million bail in October 1995 under the condition Shakur would sign with Death Row. Shakur did and then released his 1996 double album "All Eyez on Me" — his biggest release and the last before his death. The muder remains unsolved.

Shakur was shot and killed in the BMW on September 7, 1996. Las Vegas police impounded the car and later auctioned it off, TMZ reports. The car has changed many hands since then and is now up for sale by Moments in Time, a memorabilia dealer.

Tupac's final vehicle purchase, a Hummer H1, sold for more than $300,000 at auction May of last year, CNN reported at the time.
I like hip-hop and rap, but I'm not a die-hard fan of it. I still, however, have immense respect for musical icons like Tupac. In my opinion, he's up there with all the other famous artists that have passed away. I honestly don't think I'd be able to describe what it would be like to sit in such a historic car without actually sitting in it. What a tragedy...
