The effects of the surprise poem written for her by deceased rapper Tupac Shakur, who would have turned 50 two weeks ago, still remain. Red Table Talk hostess Jada Pinkett Smith uploaded a video showing the poem to her Instagram account.
In the Instagram video, Pinkett Smith shows viewers the poem, titled ‘Lost Soulz,’ written on lined paper. She says she doesn’t think it has ever been published, before reading it aloud.
In a new interview with former Outlawz rapper Napoleon, Jada Pinkett Smith gave a detailed account of what happened between Tupac Shakur, and Will Smith, saying that Jada begged Tupac not to beat Will Smith.
In a recent interview with The Art Of Dialogue, Napoleon highlights the relationship between Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, while shedding light on Tupac’s untimely death. Napoleon says Jada allegedly told the All Eyez On Me rapper not to mess with Will Smith after he offended the rapper at the beginning of his relationship with Jada.
Here’s what Napoleon stated:
“The second time I probably heard him talk about her is when he went to LA. He was very upset. Pac came in the room [and] was like ‘Jada, she gonna contact me and tell me don’t do nothing to Will Smith.’ Pac was upset, and said ‘I don’t know why she think I would have tried to make some problems with Will Smith. ‘ He had a lot of love for Jada Pinkett at the time.”
It seems Tupac wasn’t trying to beat Will Smith, but just in case, Jada Pinkett believed she would try to ease the potential tension between the two rappers and tried.
