Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris has once again created headline within the Hip Hop community by mentioning Tupac Shakur.
This past Friday (September 25) Harris appeared at the NAACP’s virtual convention. Speaking with moderated Angela Rye, Harris was asked who in 2020 is the ‘Best Rapper Alive’. Kamala Harris answer, well added to the conspiracy theories when she replied with — Tupac Shakur.
Rye quickly said, “He’s not alive!”. Harris was quickly to correct herself. “I keep doing that,” Harris said laughing. Rye said she could relate, “Listen, West Coast girls think 2Pac lives on. I’m with you. So 2pac, Keep going.”
Unfortunately Harris could no keep it going, as she did not list any current Hip Hop artist. But, what she did state was her belief of some current rappers who need to stay in their lane. Perhaps throwing shade at Kanye West who many within the Democratic party feel West’s antics can help to divide the votes needed to defeat Donald Trump.
This wasn’t the first time Harris found herself trending after mentioning the late Hip Hop icon. Back in February of 2019, Harris appeared on The Breakfast Club where she claim to have listen to Tupac and Snoop Dogg‘s music during her college days.
Social Media jumped on those comments quickly proving that it was mathematically impossible for Harris to have listen to Shakur during her college days at Howard University in 1986.
Why? Well Shakur’s debut album ‘2Pacalypse Now’ was released in 1991 and Snoop’s ‘Doggystyle’ debuted in 1993.
