A letter allegedly from Tupac Shakur to a friend named Big Lock has recently surfaced online and in the hand-written document, Afeni’s son speaks on his uncompleted and never released collaboration album, ONE NATION. Although the project is well established folklore — supposedly, the goal was to kill bi-coastal beef by featuring a wide array of rappers from across the map — the real news is Pac’s mention of one specific group who was never associated with him: OutKast.

Amidst other known associates like Buckshot, Smif-n-Wessun, Scarface and E-40, the ATL group is listed as one of his potential collaborators, although it’s unknown if he had made contact or simply planned to. What we do know is that although the letter is technically unconfirmed as authentic, the handwriting definitely matches Pac’s. And given the fact he mentions his album went five-times platinum, he’s likely referencing All Eyez On Me, meaning he would’ve written this during 1996.
