Jada Pinkett Smith is marking Tupac’s 50th birthday with a previously unreleased poem by the late rapper.
According to Smith, she’s celebrating what would have been the music legend’s 50th birthday by taking a walk “down memory lane,”.
She took to Instagram to share the post with the caption,
“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.“
The poem titled ‘Lost Soulz’ read,
“Some say nothing gold can last forever / And 2 believe this [I] need no proof / I have witnessed all that was pure in me / And be changed by the evil men can do / The innocence possessed by children / Once lived inside my soul / 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 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.”
He also signed it, “Yours, Tupac.”

During her Facebook show three years ago, Jada Pinkett Smith opened up about how the death of her longtime friend still affects her.
“I’ve had a lot of loss. So many of my close friends gone. They didn’t make it to 30. They didn’t make it past 25. A lot of people talk about my relationship with Pac and figure that out. That was a huge loss in my life,” Smith said.
