Tupac's mother donates writing for research

Drafts of lyrics and poems included in the items

ATLANTA -- Tupac Shakur's mother has donated a collection of the rapper's writing to the Atlanta University Center's main library.

Afeni Shakur has handed over more than 150 of her son's items, ranging from rough drafts of lyrics and poems to a photocopy of his contract with Suge Knight and Death Row Records.

The rapper's collection will be part of the archives at the Robert W. Woodruff Library on the campus of the Atlanta University Center.

The library also houses The Martin Luther King Jr. Collection at Morehouse College.

Shakur was one of rap's best-selling artists, becoming an even bigger star after his release from prison in 1995 with his multi-platinum selling album "All Eyez on Me." He was shot to death a year later.
