Jada Pinkett Smith took to social media to gush over late rapper 2Pac. It is the US superstar's birthday this Wednesday, 16 June and Jada took to Twitter to talk about the rapper.
Jada and Pac enjoyed a very close relationship from high school and the actress revealed that the musician used to send her letters and poems. She shared a clip on Twitter showing a poem titled Lost Soulz that the lyricist sent her back in the day. Jada, who is married to rapper and Hollywood actor Will Smith, captioned her 15 June post:
"Tupac Amaru Shakur would’ve 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. Happy 'you goin’ to be 50 at midnight' Birthday Pac! I got next."
In the clip she can be heard saying she went down memory lane. Jada further said Pac wrote her many letters and poems.
"I don't think he would have minded that I share this with you guys."
The media personality believes that the poem, written on a piece of paper with a pen, was never published.
According to The Washington Post, Will Smith explained last year that he "could never open up to interact with Pac" out of insecurity over the close bond his wife shared with the late rapper. Pac and Jada met while attending high school at the Baltimore School for the Arts.
Tweeps shared mixed reactions to Jada's post. While many wished 2Pac a happy birthday, others felt sorry for her hubby.
"Yes, he had a way with words, and his delivery was even better."
"He is to me the greatest inspiration. His words echo through time and space, through chaos and darkness, reminding me I'm not alone in my struggle, that I'm a part of a bigger journey and my destiny is in my hands. We wish you a peaceful journey Pac, wherever your soul resides."
"He was then and is still the best ever and his music and lyrics still stand true today. He is still missed."
"Thank you for keeping his memory alive Beautiful Queen and for sharing this poem that’s so real in today’s society. PAC was brilliant and woke long before the rest of us! Happy Heavenly Birthday King!"
"@willsmith deserved much better than this constant NOSTALGIA."
"What’s your last name again?? Absolute disgrace."
