Tupac Shakur’s very own 1996 American Motors Hummer H1is up for sale again. It was the last vehicle purchased by the late rapper before his death in 1996, and he bought it just under a month before his death. The lot is estimated at over $100,000 and is expected to fetch quite a bit more, given it sold last year during an RR Auction for $337,144.

Shakur’s H1 is far from stock. Cosmetic modifications include a 38-inch Dick Cepek wheel and tire package, off-road lights, a 360-degree spotlight, a grille guard, diamond-plate bumpers, and an external PA system with three sirens. Oh, and a winch rated for 12,000 lbs. The custom Hummer derives power from a 6.5L turbodiesel V-8 mated to an automatic transmission. The odometer reads just 10,101 miles.

Look inside the custom U.S. Military truck turned ultimate rapper mobile and you’ll find luxuries like burl wood trim with beige leather upholstery, which envelops a 12-disc Clarion sound system paired to a Sony GPS head unit. The truck also features a host of other convenience items: air conditioning, a rear sliding glass window, privacy glass, and full power options.

Several relics from the ’90s are also included with the vehicle, like promotional cassettes for Michael Jackson's Thriller and 2Pac's All Eyez on Me. It also comes bundled with a California vanity plate that reads “YAKNPAC”—honoring the friendship between Tupac and friend Yaki “Prince” Kadafi. The two rappers were said to often take late-night cruises up and down the Los Angeles coast.

Lastly, there are two vehicle registration forms included with the vehicle. One shows the rapper as the original owner. There is also a copy of the affidavit for transferring the title to his late mother Afeni Shakur as the property successor. The affidavit also lists that “Tupac A. Shakur, the owner of the above described vehicle or vessel died on September 13, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada.”
