Kamala Harris Listened to These Rappers While High in College. There's Just One Problem.
Harris made her comments Monday on "The Breakfast Club," the New York City-based nationally syndicated radio program hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne tha God. The program touts that it is “the world’s most dangerous morning show” and is popular in the hip hop community.
The 2020 Democratic presidential contender was then asked what music she listened to when she smoked a joint. Charlamagne tha God bluntly asked, “What was you listening to when you was high? What was on? What song was on?”
Harris quickly responded, “Definitely Snoop, Tupac for sure.”
However, Harris graduated from Howard University in 1986 and was finished with law school by 1989. She was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1990.
While it's possible Harris listened to Snoop and Tupac years before they made it big, her stance on marijuana is complicated, even hypocritical.
As San Francisco's district attorney, Harris opposed legislation to legalize pot in California and aggressively prosecuted non-violent drug offenders.
Additionally, The New York Times recently outlined how as California's Attorney General, Harris' office had a record of defending wrongful convictions, like that of George Gage, who remains in prison.
