Will Smith Wife Drops Tupac Shakur Bombshell

Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett mith shared a throwback video on Weds that featured her late friend and rapper Tupac Shakur. The video saw Shakur and Pinkett Smith lip-syncing to “Parents Just Don’t Understand” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince — better known, of course, as Will Smith, the actress’ now-husband.



It has been noted that in her caption, Pinkett Smith said that she and Shakur, who became friends at the Baltimore School for the Arts, did a “terrible job” lip-syncing to the song, but both performers’ natural charisma and unquenchable energy are both on clear display.

In a separate post, Pinkett Smith shared a short excerpt from her upcoming book Worthy that gives poetic context to the video. “Not in a million years would I have dreamed that the Fresh Prince and I would become, um, very acquainted,” the actress wrote. “Not in a million years did I imagine three lives, their fates, would be so intertwined.”

Pinkett Smith also reflected on the conclusion of the two years of high school she spent with the rapper. “And… I never would have imagined that this video would become a tangible memory, of the last time Pac and I, were simply kids together. Pac and I lip syncing Parents Just Don’t Understand by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince during our Junior year in high school. Who would have thought?”
