Tupac Shakur was completely baffled by the thought of millionaires and billionaires sleeping well at night while fellow citizens are homeless and starving.
MTV released an unaired interview from 1992 that shows the late rapper speaking passionately about greed and income inequality in the United States, using Donald Trump as a benchmark.
“Everybody’s taught that. You wanna be successful? You wanna be like Trump? Gimme gimme gimme, push push push push, step step step, crush crush crush. That’s how it all is… It’s too much money here,” said Tupac. “Nobody should be hitting the lotto for 36 million and we’ve got people starving in the streets. That’s not idealistic, that’s just real. That’s just stupid… There’s no way that these people should own planes and there are people who don’t have houses.”
Little did Pac know that 24 years after the interview, the Republican Party would choose Trump to represent them in a bid for the White House.
