Sen. Kamala D. Harris, California Democrat and 2020 presidential hopeful, appears to have fibbed during an interview Monday about smoking marijuana in college while listening to music by Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

Ms. Harris cited both rappers during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio program in response to a question posed moments after she acknowledged smoking marijuana in college.

Segment - Snoop

“What were you listening to when you [were] high? What was on?” she was asked during the segment. “Was it Snoop?”

He was subsequently featured prominently on Dre’s first studio album, 1992’s “The Chronic,” prior to releasing his own debut album, “Doggystyle,” in late 1993.

Shakur began his career while Ms. Harris was in law school, but his first recorded appearance was released after she graduated — 1991’s “Same Song” by hip-hop group Digital Underground. His debut studio album, “2Pacalypse Now,” was issued later that year.
