The presidential election is what Donald Trump is most known for at the moment, which makes it kind of easy to forget that he’s been a public figure for a long time, long enough that Tupac was talking about him back in 1992.
MTV News just posted a previously unaired clip from August 21, 1992 (although portions of it actually found their way online last summer) during which a 21-year-old Shakur speaks about greed and the every-man-for-himself nature of economic success.
“You’re taught that from school, big business, everywhere: You want to be successful? You want to be like Trump? Gimme gimme gimme, push push push, step step step, crush crush crush. That’s how it all is,” he said. He went on to clarify his stance by saying that no successful person got to their position entirely on their own: “Everybody needs a little something to be independent. No independent person just grew up and was born independent. You worked and you learned teamwork and you learned cooperation and unity and struggle, and then you became independent. And we have to teach that.”
