Looks like Tupac Shakur saw right through Donald Trump back in the 90s! MTV News published an unseen interview with Pac from 1992. The rapper spoke a lot of truth about economics, politics, and even Trump that can still be applied to today’s society!
“You wanna be successful? You wanna be like Trump? Gimmie gimmie gimmie! Push push push push! Step step step! Crush crush crush! That’s how it all is. It’s like nobody ever stops,” Pac said in the interview, opening up about the greed and selfishness right here in America. He also spoke about those who had been wronged by our country’s system.
“Everybody’s smart to know that we’ve been slighted and we want ours. And I don’t mean by ‘ours,’ 40 acres and a mule because we’re past that. But we need help,” he admitted. “For us to be on our own two feet, us meaning youth or us meaning black people, whatever you want to take it for, for us to be on our own two feet we do need help.”
He went on to open up about pay inequality, calling out rich folks who kept their money to themselves. “If they earned it I think that’s good and I think they deserve it, but even if you earned it, you still owe,” Tupac stated. “Look at me, I don’t have that mega money, but I feel guilty walking by somebody…If I know I have $3,000 in my pocket, it’s wrong to give that person a quarter. It’s wrong.”
