June 16 would have been the late iconic rapper/actor Tupac Shakur’s 50th birthday.

Jada Pinkett Smith, who was a very “close friend” with Shakur, shared a never-before-seen poem written by him in a seemingly harmless birthday tribute that ultimately went left with many believing it only added to the “drama” in Pinkett and Smith’s unique marriage after it was revealed she had an “entanglement” with R&B singer August Alsina.

Jada Pinkett Smith’s seemingly harmless 50th birthday tribute to Tupac Shakur is still spiraling down the deep end.

On June 16, countless artists and fans showed their love to the late Hip Hop icon, who would have been 50 years old had he not been gunned down in 1996 at just half that age.

But it was the Red Table Talk hostess who dominated social media with a never-before-seen poem written by her forever famous friend

During an interview with The Art of Dialogue on Wednesday (June 30), Outlawz rapper Napoleon shared an instance when the actress offended Tupac when attempting to protect Will, who she was dating at the time and eventually became her husband.

“I remember when I first came around Pac, Jada Pinkett was in a movie; it may have been the first movie she ever starred in with one of the Wayan Brothers — I can’t remember the name of it.”

“We went down to Atlanta and I’m a kid and I’m like, ‘This movie is boring as hell but Pac was just staring at the screen, just paying attention and really heavily involved in the movie … really focused!”

“But the second time I probably heard him talk about her was when he went to L.A. and he was very upset. Pac came in the room, he was like, ‘Jada gonna contact me like and tell me: DON’T DO NOTHING to Will Smith!’ the New Jersey native recalled with a laugh.

“So Pac was upset. I don’t know why she would think I would try and make some problems with Will Smith. So I guess it kinda hurt him. He had a lot of love for Jada Pinkett; a lot of respect for her. A LOT of respect for her!”

When asked if 2Pac actually condoned sitting on the sideline, Napoleon revealed his former mentor was mature enough to let the situation fizzle. However, it was the nature of the request that apparently rattled the Thug Life rap legend.

“He was offended when she asked him not to do anything to Will Smith from a standpoint not to be violent towards him.

I think that just hurt him more than anything.

Because he was like, ‘What do you think this is? I’m not walking around being this impulsive, violent individual. So I think that probably hurt his feelings at the particular time.”

Despite the criticism, the 49-year-old actress revealed she had to travel down “memory lane” to find the unpublished diamond in the rough.

“He had a song called ‘Lost Souls’ on the Gang Related soundtrack but I believe this was the original concept because he wrote this, I believe, when he was at Rikers [Island],” she explained, dating the poem to around 1995.

“And I was like, I don’t think he would have minded that I share this with you guys.”
