June 16 was Tupac Shakur’s birthday, who died at a very young age on September 13, 1996. Shakur was reportedly Jada Pinkett’s very close friend and to mark what would have been his 50th birthday, ‘The Red Table Talk’ host shared his unpublished work. The late rapper had reportedly written it and given it to Pinkett.

Sharing her prized possession on Instagram as a video, the 49-year-old actress 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. Happy ‘you goin’n to be 50 at midnight’ Birthday Pac! I got next. P.s I was planning to post tomorrow which is why the video says today is Pac’s bday. But I decided to start earlyyyyy.”

She also mentioned in the video that ‘Lost Soulz’ by Shakur is one of the many he wrote to her. The mother-of-two and wife of Will Smith said, “Pac wrote me many letters and many poems. And I don't think this has ever been published honestly,” before adding, “I don't think he would have minded that I shared this with you guys.”

The never-seen-before poem shared on the social media platform was handwritten with a blue pen. It read, “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 / The innocence possessed by children / Once lived inside my soul / But surviving years with criminal peers / Has turned my warm heart to cold / I used 2 dream and fantasize / But now I'm scared 2 sleep / Petrified, not to live or die / But to awaken and still be me / It is true that nothing gold can last / We will all one day see death / When the purest hearts are torn apart / LOST SOULS are all that's left / Down on my knees I beg of God / To save me from this fate / Let me live to see what was gold in me / Before it is all too late.” Shakur ended it by writing, “Yours, Tupac.”

Many loved the poem and Pinkett’s tribute to her dear friend, whose death reportedly still affects her. But there were some who took it another level as a person tweeted, “Will Smith is a multimillionaire still losing the affection of his wife to a man who died 25 years ago. 💔” Another one wrote, “Will Smith has been the best in everything else except in Jada's heart.” The third one said, “Will Smith has been Jada's rebound for nearly 3 decades now.”



 



 



 

Another user posted, “Jada probably gets Will to sing happy birthday to Pac.” The second user commented, “Every year Jada will do Something just to hurt Mawillies- Will Smith UNPROVOKED.” A Twitter user aked, “Mara Jada no Will Smith ..what kind of marriage are they in ??” while another one added, “Jada will not let 2Pac rest & she will not give Will Smith peace. Women can kill.”

 



 



 



 



 

Meanwhile, earlier, Smith, who is rumored to have been in an open relationship with his wife, had admitted that he was insecure about Pinkett’s close friendship with Shakur. In 2020, the 52-year-old told Charlamagne tha God, “I could never open up to interact with Pac. You know, because we had a little bit of a thing. You know, they grew up together and they loved each other, but they never had a sexual relationship,” before saying, “That was a huge regret of mine...I couldn't handle it. I was the soft rapper from Philly and he was Pac. You know what I mean? I was deeply, deeply insecure, and I wasn't man enough to handle that relationship.”
