Enjoy and look out for the new mixtape “Smell The DA.I.S.Y.” all beats by J Dilla. Peace… and in advance, You’re Welcome.

Jada Pinkett Smith said at The Arsenio Hall Show:
"Pac was probably one of the first male figures that I had in my life that saw the beauty and the talent and my intelligence separated from sex.
That’s something that a young girl usually gets from their father. I didn’t have that. Pac was the first one, that it wasn’t about sex. It was about you, you are a beautiful woman, you’re talented, you’re strong, I respect you and you are my girl.
You’re gonna sit right here and I’m a protect you, and I’ma make sure, if nothing else, you get what you need, and that’s what our relationship was like.”
