Photographer Mike Miller is famous for shooting some of the most iconic album covers and press photos in West Coast hip-hop history, but you don’t have to take my word for it: check out his portfolio. Retna is a contemporary artist, perhaps best known for illustrating the cover of Justin Bieber’s Purpose. The duo have come together to auction off a 1-of-1 print featuring Miller’s iconic shot of Tupac Shakur flipping the bird in South Central Los Angeles, which Retna then painted over in his signature style.

The piece is on auction over on Paddle8 with a starting bid of $16,200 USD at the time of this writing; it is expected to go for $27,000 USD with all profits going to the Venice Family Clinic. If you’re a classic hip-hop head with a heart of gold, click here to put your bid in for a piece of history.
