Lyrics written in jail by the late Tupac Shakur are due to go up for auction, with an estimated value of between £30,000-£50,000.

The documents are the originals penned by the rapper during a jail stint and form part of Sotheby's upcoming Rock & Pop exhibition sale.

"Ambitionz Az A Ridah" is the opener for his famous All Eyez On Me album, which also saw him team up with Dr Dre.

The album was recorded immediately after his release from jail in October 1995, and released in early 1996.

In September 1996, Shakur was killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.
