Jada Pinkett Smith Shares Unreleased Poem From Tupac Shakur

Jada Pinkett Smith is celebrating the late Tupac Shakur.

The 49-year-old Red Table Talk star shared a poem from the late icon on what would have been his 50th birthday on Wednesday (June 16).

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 wrote.

“Of course, I went down memory lane. Over the years, Pac wrote me many letters and many poems. I don’t think one has ever been published honestly,” she said in the video.

“Some say nothing gold can last forever / And 2 believe this (I) need no proof / I have witnessed all that was pure in me / Be changed by the evil men can do / The innocence possessed by children / Once lived inside my soul,” the poem reads.

“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 continues.

“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.”

Jada Pinkett Smith also recently made headlines for an intimate moment she shared with her family.

Madonna Is Unable to Block Sale of Personal Items, Including Letter from Tupac Shakur

Madonna has lost her appeal to block the sale of personal items, including a break-up letter from her ex-boyfriend Tupac Shakur.

The 60-year-old entertainer’s former pal Darlene Lutz is placing some of Madonna‘s personal items up for auction and a New York State Appeals Court says the singer can’t pursue claims against her, according to TMZ.

Madonna and Darlene reportedly settled a dispute back in 2004 and Darlene paid an undisclosed amount of money so that Madonna would never go after her for anything.

The judge says that this release allows for the sale of Madonna‘s personal items, which also include panties and more letters to celebrities.

Eminem Speaks Out About Tupac & Biggie's Rap Rivalry

Eminem is sharing his thoughts on Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.‘s rap rivalry.

The 46-year-old “Killshot” rapper opened up about the late rappers while hosting 12 Days of Dissmas on his exclusive SiriusXM channel Shade 45 on Tuesday (December 25).

Joined by SiriusXM host DJ Whoo Kid and Paul Rosenberg, Eminem discussed some of hip hop’s greatest diss records ever made. Listeners heard songs from artists such as LL Cool J, N.W.A., 2Pac, and more.

On the rivalry, Eminem shared, “That, I feel like, was the first time I ever heard anybody get that personal on a diss ’cause it was definitely – most of it, majority – was personal, below-the-belt jabs and s–t, but it was done so well, and the record was just co crazy.”

“That’s another beef,” he added. “The Tupac/Biggie thing was tough because you like them both, and you’re just stuck in this weird thing where you’re bumping the Tupac diss record, then you’re bumping something from Biggie that might be dissing him in it.”

Eminem also discussed the first 50 Cent song he ever heard and the “dangerous” energy he felt when listening to it.

Snoop Dogg Inducts Tupac Into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame With Emotional Tribute (Video)

Snoop Dogg paid a heartfelt tribute to his late friend Tupac Shakur at the 2017 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony.

The 45-year-old rapper took the stage and reflected on how Tupac – who died more than 20 years ago at the untimely age of 25 – has changed not only the music industry but also himself as a person and artist.

“While many remember him now as some kind of thugged-out superhero, Tupac really was only good, and he represented through his music like no one before,” Snoop told the crowd. “It’s the fact that he never shied away from it. He wore it like a badge of honor. With an unapologetic voice, Pac embraced those contradictions that proved we ain’t just a character out of someone else’s storybook.”

Snoop also recalled a time he went parasailing with Tupac while on vacation in South America – with Suge Knight driving the boat! “Does anybody know what parasailing is?” Snoop asked. “Because we sure didn’t. Me and Pac were sitting on the edge of the boat with all this gear on when all of a sudden, the boat pulls away and we start floating away. We were scared as a [expletive], we were holding hands.”

Tupac, we love you, dawg,” Snoop finished. “You gon’ always be right with us. … They can’t take this away from you, homie. I love you, Tupac. Welcome to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Thug life!”
