American actress Jada Pinkett Smith has shared a never-before-seen poem by Tupac Shakur as she celebrates his 50th posthumous birthday.
The red table host, 49, posted the poem on Instagram on Tuesday 15th June 2021 ahead of the rapper’s Wednesday 16th June birthday. In the video, she showcased a handwritten poem titled “Lost Soulz” that he gave to her.
“I don’t think this one has ever been published,” she said in the clip. “I don’t think he would have minded that I shared this with you guys.” She then read aloud the poem, which talks of death.
In the caption of her Instagram upload, Pinkett Smith said the late rapper had a “way with words” and spoke of honouring his legacy.
