Not in her wildest dreams would Pinkett Smith have imagined that she and the famous Fresh Prince would end up getting along well. “I never in a thousand years thought that the fates of three lives would be so interwoven.” She noted that the film served as a “physical reminder of the final time Tupac and I were together just kids.” Later, Pinkett Smith uploaded the complete video to Instagram.

Shakur, who passed away in 1996 September, and Jada Pinkett Smith both attended the same school when they were young. They got along well and in the movie All Eyez on Me, which starred Demetrius Jr. as Assata Shakur and Kat as Jada Pinkett Smith, their friendship was dramatized. In an interview hosted by Howard Stern around 2015, Pinkett Smith reflected on how she had never met anyone like Tupac in her entire life, noting that he had a lot of charisma, for which she admired him a lot.
