The dig comes after a recent interview in which Joe Biden's runner-up, California Senator Kamala Harris, said Tupac was "the best rapper in the world".
Tupac's family member, Mopreme Shakur, told TMZ that the Trump campaign invitation was "clearly disrespectful" to loved ones.

President Donald Trump's campaign left the late rapper Tupac Shakur a ticket to the vice-presidential debate as an excavation on Kamala Harris after a recent interview, according to the New York Post.
In an interview with Angela Rye last month, Harris was asked who she thinks is "the best rapper in the world".
"Tupac," Harris replied, chuckling as the Democratic vice presidential candidate realized her mistake.
Trump's senior advisor on campaigns Jason Miller confirmed that there was one ticket left for the '90s rapper when Vice President Mike Pence and Harris competed in the debate stage on Wednesday, the New York Post reported.
"I can confirm that we left a ticket for Tupac Shakur, who is known to be Sen. Harris' favorite rapper," Miller told journalists during a conference call. "I don't know if he'll show up. Personally, I'm more of a Biggie fan if he's still alive, but we'll keep a ticket waiting for Mr. Shakur."
A family member of the late rapper, Tupac Shakur, told TMZ Trump's campaign "was clearly disrespectful" to loved ones referring to the invitation.
"We should know Trump's lack of respect for the black and brown community," Tupac's step-brother Mopreme Shakur told TMZ.
