2Pac lived in many places before his tragic death in 1996, and the the two-unit Baltimore apartment he and his family moved to during his teenage years has now gone up for sale.
TMZ reported Thursday (November 17) that the building, located on what’s now known as Tupac Shakur Way (formerly Greenmount Ave), has been for listed for $179k.
‘Pac moved to the first-floor apartment in 1984 at 13 with his mother, stepfather and half sister, and later befriended Jada Pinkett Smith when they attended the Baltimore School for the Arts together.
A clip that went viral on TikTok following Will Smith’s infamous Oscars altercation with Chris Rock earlier this year shows ‘Pac and Jada dancing to the 1988 DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince hit “Parents Just Don’t Understand” in a home video – likely in their Baltimore days.

The news comes on the heels of 2Pac’s stepfather being granted compassionate release from prison amid his declining health. Mutulu Shakur was recently diagnosed with bone marrow cancer, with a Bureau of Prisons doctor claiming in May he had less than six months to live.
According to The Intercept, the 72-year-old will now be able to spend his final days outside of prison in Southern California.
Mutulu spent 36 years behind bars, and was previously denied prison release 10 times until his most recent hearing in October. The federal parole commission admitted he held an impeccable institutional record and was no longer a risk to society.
Shakur was convicted of racketeering conspiracy charges in 1981 for his involvement in the robbery of a Brink’s armored truck, where a guard and two police officers were killed. He was later convicted for helping 2Pac’s activist godmother, Assata Shakur, escape from prison.
“We are relieved that the Parole Commission now recognizes what has long been true — that Dr. Shakur’s release poses no risk whatsoever,” Brad Thomson, one of Mutulu Shakur’s attorneys, said. “It is tragic that it took until he was on the verge of death for that truth to finally be realized. Mutulu will now be able to live out his final days, surrounded by the love and care of his family and close friends.”
