Earlier this month (Sept. 14), Diddy caught a stray shot in the midst of Eminem‘s feud with Machine Gun Kelly on Slim Shady’s “Killshot” diss track. Seemingly out of character, Em implicated Puff Daddy for the murder of Tupac Shakur back in 1996 near the tune’s end. Joe Budden, who works under Diddy at REVOLT, shared some of his private conversations with his boss regarding the matter during a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast (Sept. 19).
“Nothing to speculate about, nothing to talk about. Puff said it’s in his hands, and he said, I can say it. That’s the end of that. There’s nothing to say about it. ‘It’s in my hands. [Eminem’s] wild,'” Budden cryptically relayed. “This is bigger than rap. I’m getting out of there because I’m afraid. You just have to question why people do things sometimes.”
Eminem closed “Killshot” by letting Diddy know he was actually “just playing” and still has love for the Bad Boy Entertainment CEO. “But, Kells, the day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits/That he put the hit out that got Pac killed,” Em raps.
The Detroit legend’s questionable shots even prompted Jay Electronica to send a fiery tweet that has since been deleted taking exception to Eminem’s unsettling sentiments. “How dare you accuse Diddy of killing Tupac while you completely look pass Jimmy Iovine and those who profited from his death the MOST. You best tread carefully,” he wrote.
