P.Diddy has reportedly responded after Eminem claimed that he was responsible for ordering Tupac’s death – before later claiming it was a joke.
Last week, the ongoing feud between Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem saw the hip-hop titan releasing “Kill Shot”, his latest diss track against Kelly.
But as he dissed Kelly, he also seemingly hinted that Diddy was responsible for ordering Tupac’s death in 1996.
“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,” Eminem raps on the track.
Although the track sees Eminem later admit that he is just “playin”, it provoked immediate fury from some of hip-hop’s leading figures.
Jay Electronica led the backlash against Eminem, urging him to “tread carefully”.
““How dare you accuse Diddy of killing Tupac”, He said.
Now, Joe Budden claims that Diddy is aware of the reference – and he’s planning to respond.
“Nothing to speculate about. Nothing to talk about,” Budden admitted on a recent episode of the Joe Budden podcast.
“Puff said it’s in his hands and he said I can tell ya. That’s the end of that. He said, ‘Yeah, there’s nothing to say about it. It’s in my hands.’ He’s wild. Period.”
Budden himself was dissed by Eminem on ‘Kamikaze’, after he previously slammed his track ‘Untouchable’ as “trash” and “once of the worst songs he’s ever heard”.
Although he later attempted to respond with his own diss track, he was widely mocked by 50 Cent.
