Holy Crap, Tupac Called Out Trump Way Back In 1992

Tupac knew what was up. 

Talented beyond his years and clarivoyant? The world truly lost someone special with Tupar Shakur.

In a previously unreleased 1992 interview with MTV News, Tupac spit some real wisdom about income inequality in America and the way we're taught from a young age to be selfish and greedy, even calling out Donald Trump as an example of how not to be.

"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," the rapper said.

"It's too much money here," he continued. "No one should be hitting the lotto for $36 million and we got people starving in the streets. That is not idealistic, that's just real."

How many celebs today do you hear speaking out against pointlessly accumulating wealth? Not very many. Tupac went on to call out rich people and the debt that they owe to others.

"If they earned it I think that's good and I think they deserve it, but even if you earned it, you still owe," he said. "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, I feel like it's wrong to give that person a quarter or a dollar. It's wrong."

Truly a one-of-a-kind individual. Watch the rest of the interview below.
