Personal Quote:

Trivia:

She attended Baltimore's School of Arts at the same time as Tupac Shakur, where they became close friends. They made a video together at the amusement park King's Dominion, where they lip-synced to Will Smith's & DJ Jazzy Jeff's "Parents Just Don't Understand." Tupac acts like an MC, and Jada acts like a dancer. See more »
