An offer of over $1 million (£642,000) has been made in the relation to the Tupac sex tape, but only for the rights to the unreleased track which is playing in the background.

According to US gossip site TMZ, the CEO of NOHO, a US firm which manufactures a drink that promises to ensure that people don't have hangovers after a night out, has offered the money to use the track as the theme tune for a new commercial.

News that a sex tape featuring the rapper existed emerged last week and two rival pornographic companies were reportedly ready to pay over $150,000 (£98,000) for it, but after hearing of its existence, the rapper's family have made it very clear that they "will sue anyone who tries to sell a Tupac tape".

According to an official spokesman for Tupac's estate, only his family can authorize the use of Tupac's image for commercial use and they are not prepared to allow his image to be used for this.

The tape was reportedly made in 1991 and features an unnamed woman performing oral sex on the rapper during a party while the track in question plays in the background.
