LOS ANGELES — If you’re Team #DumpTrump, this video may make you say: Tupac saw right through Trump way back in the 90s.

We’ve uncovered an MTV interview from more than 20 years ago of Pac slamming what he calls Trump’s “greed.”

He also drops knowledge about the state of America… that could still be applied today.

“This world is such a… ‘gimme, gimme, gimme. Everybody back off.’ Everyone’s taught that in school, everywhere. Big business, if 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.”

Tupac has been called a lyrical genius who was well ahead of his time, and this video from 1992 may prove that point.
