TUPAC Shakur’s brother has lashed out at Donald Trump’s campaign team for leaving a ticket at the vice presidential debate last week for the late star.
Stepbrother Mopreme Shakur claimed the team had used the rapper in a “clearly disrespectful” way so to mock Democrat Sen Kamala Harris.
Recently Harris mistakenly said Tupac was the “best rapper alive” in an embarrassing gaffe.
During an interview with CNN’s Angela Rye at the NAACP’s virtual conference in September Kamala Harris was asked who was the best rapper alive?
Harris paused for a second before replying: “Tupac.”
Mopreme told TMZ he wasn’t surprised by the incident because "we should know Trump's lack of respect for the Black and brown community."
He added he would like an apology but said he knew that the President wouldn’t give one.
Instead Mopreme said Donald Trump could make it up to him by releasing his father Mutulu – Tupac’s stepfather – from prison.
Mutulu was sentenced in 1988 to 60 years behind bars for RICO conspiracy, armed bank robbery and bank robbery killings.
He has been denied parole eight times.
However, Mopreme claims his father has spoken out against violence and taken full responsibility for his crimes.
Mopreme also tackled Harris’s blunder about calling Tupac the greatest rapper alive.
He said that despite her blunder it showed she had great taste in music and that all California loved her.
During the interview the former California attorney general downplayed the gaff by saying: “Not alive, I know. I keep doing that”.
Tupac died in 1996 after a gunman opened fire into his car in Las Vegas and was just 25-years-old at the time of his death.
Rye jokingly defended the error, pointing to the conspiracy theories that Tupac could be alive: “Listen, West Coast girls think Tupac lives on; I'm with you. So Tupac keep going.”
Several conspiracy theorists have come up after reports of being sighted in places like Havana, Cuba.
His former label head and friend Suge Knight claimed that Tupac discussed faking his own death in a documentary.
In recent years, several pictures showing men who look like the rapper have surfaced online causing fans to believe he is indeed still alive.
Tupac and Suge Knight were stopped at a traffic light when a white Cadillac pulled up alongside and a gunman shot into the car.
The rapper was hit four times and died in hospital at the age of 25.
