Diddy’s Response To Eminem’s Lyrics About His Role In Tupac’s Murder Is Hair-Raising...

"That’s bigger than rap, and I’m getting out of here because I’m afraid.”

Published September 20th

Detroit rap icon Eminem’s “Killshot” diss track not only struck its intended target, Em’s declared rap rival and “rap devil” Machine Gun Kelly, but also grazed a few other industry heads on the way.

Namely, Diddy became the mark of one of the track’s most belligerent shots when Em alluded to an egregious accusation regarding the Bad Boy Records founder’s involvement in the 1996 murder of West Coast rap legend, Tupac Shakur. Following Jay Electronica’s choice words for Slim Shady and the audacious insinuation, it goes without saying that the bar didn’t sit well with Puff himself, either.

Joe Budden bore witness to that, as revealed on the Joe Budden Podcast, and his disclosure of Puff’s formidable sentiments toward the situation is certain to turn some heads. 

  1. If you’ll recall, Em spat the line while ripping into MGK’s rap durability

    It goes as follows:

    Killshot, I will not fail, I'm with the Doc still
    But this idiot's boss pops pills and tells him he's got skills
    But, Kells, the day you put out a hit's the day Diddy admits
    That he put the hit out that got Pac killed, ah!


  2. Unquestionably, the line drew all eyes to Puff afterward

    But according to Uncle Joe and his private conversation with Diddy, there’s nothing to see here. “Nothing to speculate about,” he said. “Nothing to talk about. Puff said it’s in his hands. And he said I can say it. And that’s the end of that.”

    Puff kept his statement short and sweet, Joe suggested, and wanting no parts of that beef, the New Jersey-native said he quickly changed the subject. “This is bigger than rap,” he continued. “That’s bigger than rap. And I’m getting out of here because I’m afraid.”

    Yikes. Listen to Joe briefly elaborate on Puff’s “Killshot” thoughts below.
