Tupac’s Brother Slams Trump Campaign For Leaving Ticket For Late Rapper At VP Debate Mocking Kamala Harris: It’s Clearly Disrespectful
Tupac Shakur’s stepbrother, Mopreme Shakur, is not too happy with President Donald Trump and his campaign for leaving a ticket for the late rapper at the Vice Presidential debate last week. This occurred just weeks after Sen. Kamala Harris named Tupac as the ‘best rapper alive’. During the NAACP’s virtual convention on Sep.25, the Vice Presidential nominee, Kamala Harris was asked who she felt was the “best rapper alive.” She answered, “Tupac”. CNN commentator Angela Rye, who moderated the event, quickly corrected the California senator, reminding her that Tupac is no longer living. Angela replied,
“He’s not alive! You said, He lives on…Listen, West Coast girls think Tupac lives on; I’m with you.”
Kamala then said,
“I keep doing that.”

At an attempt to take a jab at Kamala Harris, President Trump’s campaign set aside a ticket under the slain rapper’s name for last Wednesday’s (Oct.7) Vice Presidential debate. Mopreme Shakur, Tupac’s stepbrother, told reporters it was “clearly disrespectful” to his family for the President’s campaign to leave a ticket for Tupac at the debate. Mopreme also said he wasn’t surprised by the incident because:
“We should know Trump’s lack of respect for the black and brown community.”
Tupac Shakur was killed in 1996 at the age of 25 after sustaining serious gunshot wounds. The news about the Trump administration leaving a ticket for the slain rapper was shared on social media by White House reporters.
