A specter is haunting Donald—the specter of Tupac.
On Tuesday, MTV unearthed a previously unaired interview with (supposedly dead, supposedly American) rapper Tupac Shakur. In the 24-year-old clip, Shakur discusses inequality and greed, mentioning current presidential candidate Donald Trump in passing:
“You’re taught that from school, big business, everywhere: You want to be successful? You want to be like Trump? It’s gimme gimme gimme, push push push, step step step, crush crush crush.”
According to multiple news outlets, the video is proof Shakur “tried to warn us” about Donald Trump. This, of course, ignores the fact that Trump has been synonymous with “grotesque, rich prick” since Hammer pants were still in style.
