The eight-minute interview was posted to YouTube in February 2010.

Legendary rapper Tupac Shakur once mentioned Donald Trump during a 1992 interview with MTV, which apparently never aired. 

Shakur — fatally shot during a drive-by in Las Vegas in September 1996 — talked about his poor upbringing and the difference between working to "build an empire," as opposed to being born into one. 

"You want to be successful — you want to be like Trump? Gimme, gimme, gimme. Push, push, push. Step, step, step. Crush, crush, crush. That's how it all is. Nobody ever stops," Shakur said of the state of the world, in his opinion. That comment comes about five minutes into the video. 

Trump is now the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. 

At that time, Shakur was apparently recording a track for a Christmas album to benefit the Special Olympics.The raw eight-minute interview was posted to YouTube in February 2010. 

The video has more than 1.4 million views. 

Shakur would have been 45 on Thursday. His mother, Afeni, died at the age of 69 last month.  

MTV was unable to confirm whether the video ever aired. But a version of it was recently added to the MTV News YouTube page.
