Jada Pinkett Smith honors Tupac Shakur’s 50th birthday with never-before-seen poem from late rapper

Jada Pinkett Smith is sharing a poem close to her heart and dear to her, a poem written to Pinkett-Smith by her late friend Tupak Shakur that has never been seen before.

The 49-year-old “Set It Off” actress, who had previously revealed her unconditional love for Shakur, posted a handwritten memoir about what could be the rapper and actor’s 50th birthday.

“I don’t think it was ever published,” he said in the clip. “… I don’t think he’ll remember that I shared it with you.”

The co-host of “Red Table Talk” later read the poem aloud, which speaks of death, and Shakur’s “Let me see what gold was in me / let it live before it’s too late.”

Smith will tell how he kept his wife’s hand as a friendly friend of Jada to Pickett and Tupac.
