The rare footage of ‘Pac discussing greed in America and calling out the wealthy for not giving back, has stayed buried until now. In the clip, the late rapper is in the studio and is delivering a fiery sermon on economic disparity that, ironically, relates to what’s going on in our current times.
“We’re taught this from school, Eevrywhere. Big business. You want to be successful? You wanna be like Trump…? Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie, push, push, push, step step step, step, crush crush, crush,” he states.
He speaks about the wealth inequality gap in America in an honest tongue lashing with Donald Trump as his main example.
“Its too much money here. I mean, nobody should be hitting the lotto for 36 million and we’ve got people starving in the streets. That is not idealistic, that’s just real,” he says. “There’s no way Michael Jackson should have, or whoever Jackson, should have a million, thousand, drupel, billion dollars and there’s people starving. There’s no way. There’s no way that people should own planes and there are people who don’t have houses.”
Twenty years after his death, Tupac Shakur’s breakdown of economic disparity and ‘Trumpian wealth’ comes timely and is a refreshing reminder in the wake of election season.
Watch as ‘Pac keeps it real in the video above.
