THEN: Whitley Gilbert (a.k.a Jasmine Guy)
Jasmine Guy exploded on the screen playing the bourge Whitney Gilbert on “A Different World”. During the show’s run, the Boston native released her first and only album; self- titled “Jasmine Guy” in 1990. Although her music career was short lived, her ties to the music industry were extremely strong, as she became good friends with the late rapper, Tupac Shakur, through her co-star, Jada Pinkett- Smith. After Pac’s passing, Jasmine collaborated with his mother, Afeni Shakur, to release her biography.
