Interviewed by The Art of Dialogue, former member of the Outlawz Napoleon talks about Tupac Shakur staying over at Jasmine Guy’s house after being shot.
Shakur and Jasmine would first meet on the set of Different World in 1993, where Tupac made a few appearances. But, this wouldn’t be the last time Jasmine Guy would see or hear about Shakur.
Fast forward to 1994, Tupac was nominated for a NAACP Image Award for his performance in the movie Poetic Justice. That same night, Jasmine Guy would also be up for an award, as she was nominated for her acting in the comedy series A Different World.
Unlike Jasmine, Tupac did not win the award, at the 26th annual NAACP Image Awards, which was held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.
After the award show while speaking with the press, Jasmine Guy was not questioned about her award. Instead she was asked about Tupac Shakur. This particular reporter asked Jasmine how she felt about Tupac being nominated for an Image award.
Jasmine Guy would answer the question, but the reporter not satisfied with her response continued to irritate the actress with the same question again. Standing up for Shakur, Jasmine Guy told the reporter she had no interest in “disrespecting” Pac.
Pulling from Tupac’s hit singles ‘Keep Ya Head Up’ and ‘Dear Mama’, Jasmine did not understand why the reporter was insisting Tupac was dissing woman.
Jasmine Guy’s loyalty to Tupac would be on full display once again, this time under incredible terrifying circumstances.
In 1994, Tupac Shakur was shot five times at Quad Studios in New York. Apart from being shot, Tupac was also robbed of his jewelry. The incident would spark the well know beef between Pac and Biggie Smalls.
Receiving multiple threats while at the hospital, Tupac against doctors orders decided to leave. To ensure he would remain in at a safe unknown location as he recovered and recollected his thoughts, Tupac stayed at Jasmine Guy’s home.
Confirmed by Mutah Beale aka Napoleon, Tupac remained at Jasmine Guy’s home after leaving the hospital. “We was at…. now the world knows Jasmine Guy’s house. At that particular time Jasmine Guy, Pac, he was staying at her house while he was on some heeling up getting his strength back.”
“We was with him. All of us. We was actually living in Jasmine’s house with him. We had a hotel room not to far from it, but we was there with Pac everyday. Some days we would go to the hotel to sleep, but the majority of the time we would sleep there.”
