Paul Walker and Tyrese were costars in the Fast & Furious franchise, but more importantly they were friends.
Tyrese, understandably, is devastated by the 40-year-old actor's tragic death on Saturday, Nov. 30. He paid a visit to his late friend's crash site, and as shown in E! News' exclusive photos and video below he was overcome with grief. Tyrese chronicled some of his heartache on social media, even reposting (and then deleting) one fan-made tribute depicting Paul as an angel sitting atop the wreckage of his Porsche Carrera GT.
On Sunday, he Instagrammed a sweet video showing Walker, who turned 40 on Sept. 12, blowing out the candles on his birthday cupcakes. "Not just a family on camera were a real family #WeJustCelebratedHis40th," wrote Tyrese, adding, "Pray for his daughter and family and closest friends please this hurts #RIHAW ( Rest in HEAVEN Angel Walker ) Stay strong #FastFamily #MyLastPost."
Tyrese wasn't the only one to pay tribute to Paul publicly. Wu-Tang Clan frontman RZA and his two sons crafted a song titled "Destiny Bends" in honor of the fallen star. Singer Will Wells provided vocals for the emotional track, which RZA posted on SoundCloud. "I met Paul on the set of the film Brick Mansion, where we talked, laughed, and exchanged ideas of life and fatherhood," he wrote. "I only knew him personally for less than a year, but we knew each other through our work and art.
"We saw in each other a kindred spirit of men coming from unlikely circumstances, and rising to be the light and beacon of our family and loved ones," added RZA. "Men who learned the joy and pains of love in life, and success, while coming to realize that nothing is more important than family, friendship, and the brotherhood of humanity."
Ludacris' tribute to Paul wasn't musical, per se, but the rapper-actor did incorporate rhyme into his profound goodbye. "Your humble spirit was felt from the start, wherever you blessed your presence you always left a mark," he Instagrammed, along with a picture of "The Fast Family" holding hands in prayer around a table. "we were like brothers & our birthdays are only 1 day apart, now You will forever hold a place in all of our hearts @paulwalker legacy will live on forever. R.I.P."
