My, how things haven't changed

Can you believe that something said 24 years ago still stands today? Well, they do say history repeats itself or that sometimes, things never change. And this old interview with Tupac is a perfect example. Late, legendary rapper Tupac Shakur was more than an artist. He was the voice of our people. Black people. And while his fans loved his music, a lot of people connected with him on his opinions on social issues.

Over the years of his career that was cut short, Tupac had a lot to say about the injustice of black people, the system that failed our youth, and rich people like Donald Trump who only get richer while the poor gets poorer. The funny thing is, a lot of the things that Pac talk about in this vintage interview before his death are still relevant today.
