*On Saturday, Jada Pinkett Smith took to Facebook with a post about Tupac’s death and the culture of violence against African Americans that she compares to genocide.

The “Gotham” star posted a 90s-era photo of herself with the rapper she had known since their pre-fame days in Baltimore.

“In this picture,” she wrote, “I’m flanked by two extremely close friends of mine…Tupac and Maxine. They both died tragically not too far apart from one another.”

Tupac died on Sept. 13th, 1996, several days after being gunned down in a drive-by. His murder has still not been solved.
