Tupac Shakur’s brother Mopreme Shakur recently spoke with TMZ and suggested that President Donald Trump should help to release his father Mutulu Shakur from prison.
This all started when Kalama Harris appeared at the NAACP’s virtual convention on September 25th. Speaking with moderated Angela Rye, Harris was asked who in 2020 is the ‘Best Rapper Alive’, in which the democratic Vice President nominee 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.” (View: Kamala Harris In The News For Mentioning Tupac, Again!)
The Republican party wasted no time in mocking Harris. Speaking to reporters Wednesday afternoon, Trump campaign senior advisor Jason Miller told reporters during a conference call that he welcomes Tupac to the debate. “I can confirm that we have left a ticket for Tupac Shakur, who as we know is Sen. Harris’ favorite rapper alive,” said Miller.
This wouldn’t be the first time Tupac’s name was a topic of conversation when it comes to the VP of the United States. In 1992 Vice President Dan Quale called for Shakur’s debut album ‘2Pacalypse Now‘ to be taken off the shelves. Quale blamed Tupac’s music for the death of a Texas state trooper.
Continuing to mock Kamala Harris, Jason Miller said, “I don’t know if he shows up. I’m personally more of a Biggie fan if he’s still alive, but we will have a ticket waiting for Mr. Shakur.” (View: Jason Miller Calls Out Tupac For VP Debate, Says He’s A Biggie Fan.)
Now Tupac’s step-brother Mopreme Shakur has a way that Donald Trump can make up for what Mopreme calls “clearly disrespectful” comments. Mopreme isn’t surprised by Trump, “We should know Trump’s lack of respect for the Black and brown community.” Tupac’s brother also understands that Trump will never apologize either, but what he can do is release his father from prison suggested Mopreme.
Sentenced to 60 plus years in prison back in 1988 for RICO conspircacy, and armed robbery and bank robbery killings, Dr. Mutulu Shakur has been denied parole 8 times. (View: Tupac’s Father Mutulu Shakur Documentary In The Works.)
At no time did the evidence show that Dr. Shakur killed anyone. At two trials the evidence indicated others were responsible for the deaths. With that being said he has taken full responsibility for his actions, and has served as a force for good and anti-violence throughout his decades of incarceration.
Back in 2019, a compassionate release petition was filed on December 5th 2019 the request was denied, even though he meet the conditions required under federal law. Dr. Mutulu Shakur has been suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, vision problems from glaucoma, and suffered a stroke in 2014.
