Dan Quayle vs. Tupac

But 'Pac first clashed with politicians in the early '90s, thanks to Vice President Dan Quayle. "There's absolutely no reason for a record like this to be published," Quayle said of Pac's hit album 2Pacalypse Now. "It has no place in our society." 'Pac had the last word though, on the song titled, well, "Last Wordz": "Dan Quayle, don’t you know you need to get your ass kicked / Where was you when there was n---s in the caskets?"
