Jada Pinkett Smith has shared an unseen handwritten poem by Tupac to celebrate his fiftieth birthday.
Jada took to Instagram to share the poem to celebrate what would have been Tupac’s fiftieth birthday.
Tupac sadly died on September 13th, 1996 after being shot 4 times in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.
Jada and Tupac met while they were both students at The Baltimore School for the Arts.
The Red Table Talk host has previously noted on The Howard Stern Show that she kissed the rapper at one point while a student, but they both decided not to do it again.
As per TooFab, during an interview in 2020, Will Smith said “they loved each other.”
“That was a big regret for me, too, ’cause I could never open up to interact with Pac… They grew up together and they loved each other, but they never had a sexual relationship. But they had come into that age where now that was a possibility, and then Jada was with me,” he said.
The poem, titled “Lost Soulz,” reads: “Some say nothing gold can last forever / And 2 believe this [I] need no proof / I have witnessed all that was pure in me / And be changed by the evil men can do.”
“To save me from this fate / Let me live to see what was gold in me / Before it is all too late.”
Alongside posting the poem, Jada wrote: “Tupac Amaru Shakur would have been 50 midnight tonight!”
“As we prepare to celebrate his legacy… let’s remember him for that which we loved most… his way with words. Here are a few you may have never heard before.”
