Tupac Talks Donald Trump & Greed in America in 1992 Interview | MTV News


– This world is such a, and when I say this world I mean it, I don’t mean in ideal sense, I mean in everyday, every little thing you do. It’s such a gimme gimme gimme! Everybody back off, you know everybody’s
taught that from school. Everywhere, big business, you want to be successful, you want to be like Trump? Gimme gimme gimme! Push push push push! Step step step! Crush crush crush! That’s how it all is, it’s like nobody ever stops. I feel like, instead of us just being like “Slavery’s bad, slavery’s
bad, bad whitey, bad whitey!” I mean, let’s stop that. Everybody’s smart enough to
know that we’ve been slighted. and we want ours. I don’t mean by ours, 40 acres and mule because we passed that. But we need help, I mean 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. We have been here, we
have been a good friend. If you want to make it a
relationship type thing, we have been there, and
now we deserve our payback. It’s like you got a friend that you don’t never look out for. You know, you now dressed up in jewels, America’s got jewels, they
got paid and everything, lending money to everybody except us. And it’s like everybody need a little help on their way to being,
you know, self reliant. You know what I’m saying? That’s the whole thing about the album, about the Special Olympics, everybody need a little
something to be independent. No independent persons just grew up, and was born independent. You worked, and you learned team work, and you learned cooperation, and unity, and struggle, and then
you became independent. We have to teach that, and instill that. Why is it that they want to do that? I mean if this is truly a melting pot, and a country where we care about, and Lady Liberty got her hand like this, she really love us then
we need to be like that. It needs to be the black kids, and if there’s a white
person who got money, then he need to help’em. He need to help black kids, Mexican kids, Korean kids, whatever. But they need to be real, and
they need to be before we all die, and then you say “I made a mistake, we should have game them some money. We really should have
helped these folks.”. It’s going to be too late,
you know what I’m saying? Then that’s when you
gotta pay your own karma. And that’s what God make you punish, when God punishes you, because I feel like there’s too much money here. I mean nobody should be
hitting lotto for 36 million, and we got people starving in the streets. That is not idealistic, that’s just real. That is stupid. There is no way Michael
Jackson should have, or whoever Jackson, should
have a million, thousand, triple billion dollars and
then there’s people starving. There’s no way, there’s no way! That these people should own planes, and there are people
that don’t have houses, apartments, shacks, drawers, pants. – [Interviewer] Certain people will say, well, they earned it., now you go out and you earn it for yourself. – If they earned it, I
think that that’s good, I think they deserve it., but even if you earned it you still owe. Cause look at me, I don’t
have that mega money, but I feel guilty walking by somebody, I got to give him some mail. And if I know I got $3,000
in my pocket I feel like it’s wrong to give that person a quarter, or a dollar, it’s wrong. Only you know what you got in your pocket, and that’s wrong. No matter what they do, they take it and drink it then they take it and drink it. But I mean you got, you understand? And we all know how hard
it is, and it’s not about if you’re good, or you bad. So since it’s not about if
you’re good, or you bad, we know that because he don’t
got don’t mean he’s bad. Or don’t mean he’s a criminal,
don’t mean he’s crazy, or a drug addict or none of that. It just means he don’t got. Ain’t it bad you got,
I mean can you imagine somebody having 32 million dollars? 32! 32 million dollars, and
this person has nothing. And you can sleep? You can still go to the movies? These are the type of people
that get humanitarian awards. Millionaires, how can
they be humanitarians by the fact that they’re millionaires, and there’s so many poor people, shows how inhumane they are. You know what I’m
saying, and that bugs me. Not saying that I’m
never going to be rich, it’s a struggle and I
think everybody deserve. And I think there’s a
way to pay these people, I think there is a way, it just takes it to be revoluntionary. And it takes to do something
out of the ordinary, you know what I’m saying? I think if we just said, okay I got an idea, no more porno buildings, you know what I’m saying,
lets build houses. Or no more polo games, let’s
build houses for poor people. Or look, okay, I know you’re rich, I know you got 40 billion dollars, but can you just keep it to one house? You only need one house. And if you only got two kids, can you just keep it to two rooms? I mean why have 52 rooms
and you know there’s somebody with no room. It just don’t make sense to me, it don’t. And then these people celebrate Christmas, they got big trees, huge trees,
all the little trimmings, everybody got gifts, and
there’s somebody starving. And they having a white Christmas, they having a great Christmas, eggnog and the whole nine. That’s not fair to me.

  2. He was so before his time. A true poet, we will never see another Tupac in the mainstream. The world didn't deserve you King. Sending love to your spirit.

  3. A young ignorant Tupac. Take from successful ppl and give to the Lazy? Pac you one of the greatest but you sound stupid af.

  6. Welth consumes ppl. Money controls them. So they get greedy and selfish. Thats the effect of money. Its hard and cold. I understand Pac but cant blame all rich ppl for the poor ppl.

  7. Pac was doing and saying, Nipsey was doing and saying!!!! What are you doing and saying in your community????☝??????

  8. I don’t agree. just because you have the means to make good money doesn’t mean you should give it to people who cant. It’s like feeding a one legged ostrich it’s never going to run with the pack.

  9. Ummm Pac you were a super rich celebrity. Seriously just shut the fuck up. Your wrong. Jealousy. Sounds like he prefered communism.

  10. The truth is people really don't care about eachother and you only need to look at the comments section to see that evidence because behind the anonymity of this lies the truth

  11. Money will not solve black American issues. Not one bit. Black Americans must wake up and see who's really holdin' them back. It's themselves, and those who are holdin' the bait of victimhood at the end of the stick.

  12. I love pac but he’s wearing two expensive ass chains. He could have gave that to somebody else. That’s not fair
