Willow Smith Says Tupac Is Her Favorite Rapper

(AllHipHop News) Funkmaster Flex may not be the biggest fan of Tupac Shakur, but the 10-year-old Willow Smith is a fan of the deceased rapper. Willow Smith became a fan of Tupac through her mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith, who was best friends with the rapper since they met in Baltimore, where Tupac attended theater classes early in his career. During an interview with Nnette on Madd Hatta's morning show, on 97.9 The Box in Houston, Willow Smith detailed her love for Tupac, as well as other musicians. “He was my mom’s his best friend," said Willow, who added that she was fan of Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Billy Idol, B.O.B. and Eminem, although she labeled Tupac as her favorite. Willow also described meeting Roc Nation CEO Jay-Z for the first time. “It was really fun," Willow said. "He was really welcoming, and he was funny, supporting and I just felt welcomed.”
