Jada Pinkett Smith shares never-before-seen poem by Tupac for his 50th birthday

Fans, friends and collaborators are reflecting on Tupac Shakur’s legacy today (June 16) on what would have been his 50th birthday. Jada Pinkett Smith, who became close friends with the rapper at the Baltimore School for the Arts, commemorated the special day by sharing one of Pac’s unreleased poems.

“Tupac Amaru Shakur would have been 50 midnight tonight!” she captioned the Instagram post on Tuesday (June 15). “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.”

The post included Pac’s handwritten “Lost Soulz” poem, which Pinkett Smith says he mailed to her while incarcerated at Riker’s Island.
