In an interview with TMZ, Set Shakur responded to Alina Habba’s remarks as “blasphemous” after she said that her client’s legal issues will increase his poll ratings in a similar way to how Pac’s record sales increased after his bid.
“My brother was measured by his integrity, his principles and personal and collective responsibility,” Set said, while noting that her brother took accountability during his 1994 sexual abuse trial – unlike Trump.
She also added that he didn’t get popular because of his time in prison, but instead because people listening to his music “were able to measure him by his words and actions that aligned.”
Habba’s comparison came as Trump was getting ready to turn himself in for allegedly paying Stormy Daniels hush money in 2016.
“Donald Trump is Tupac. Donald Trump’s Biggie Smalls, he’s better than Tupac. I’m east coast, so I love Biggie,” she said on The Benny Show on Monday morning (April 3). “Donald Trump is his own brand. He is everything. This is just gonna boost him, we’ve seen it in the polls. It’s not a question, it’s a fact.”
Trump has landed in New York City ahead of his arraignment hearing on Tuesday (April 4), when he will become the first American president to ever face criminal charges.
