Jada Pinkett Smith recently took to Instagram to share a nostalgic video of her and the late rapper Tupac Shakur. The video, which features the two of them dancing and lip-syncing to Will Smith’s hit song “Parents Just Don’t Understand,” was shared in two separate Instagram posts.
In the first post, Pinkett Smith shared the two-minute video clip on September 20, captioning it, “Here is part of the original video of Pac and I doing a terrible job at lip syncing Parents Just Don’t Understand.”
Following this, she shared another post where she quoted a short passage from her memoir, Worthy. The passage reflects on the unexpected intertwining of her life with that of Tupac Shakur and Will Smith. It reads, “Not in a million years would I have dreamed that the Fresh Prince and I would become, um, very acquainted. Not in a million years did I imagine three lives, their fates, would be so intertwined. 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?”
