Whatever your opinion is of Donald Trump, it’s almost a guarantee that it took you until 2016 to fully form it.

Tupac, who was a visionary for so many reasons, seemed to know about the billion-dollar man decades ago. In a recently unearthed interview with MTV News, the West Coast legend channeled his “Me Against The World” persona and referred to Trump as the quintessential example of American greed and the systematic path he believes American education uses to promote a Trump-like pathway to success.

"You're taught that from school, big business, everywhere: You want to be successful? You want to be like Trump? It's gimme gimme gimme, push push push, step step step, crush crush crush,” he said while in a studio. “That's how it all is. Nobody ever stops."

He relayed this back in 1992. Imagine if Tupac were alive today. What do you think his stance would be now?
