Yesterday (September 14), Eminem released “KILLSHOT,” a diss track aimed at Machine Gun Kelly. At one point, Em taunts MGK, “The day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed.” He then ends the song stating, “Oh, and I’m just playin’, Diddy. You know I love you.”
Jay Electronica has now called out Eminem for the Diddy lyrics. “How dare you accuse Diddy of killing Tupac while you completely look pass [sic] Jimmy Iovine and those who profited from his death the MOST,” he tweeted. “You best tread carefully, Son, before I come tear your ivory tower down like Sulaiman done the Templar Knights.” In a second tweet, Jay Electronica claimed that he “had to check” Em “for blaspheming” Louis Farrakhan in 2003 when the Nation of Islam leader was attempting to broker peace between Ja Rule and Em’s then-protégé 50 Cent. Eminem and Farrakhan later met in Detroit in 2015.
Tupac was killed in September 1996. In a 2011 book, ex-Los Angeles Police Department officer Greg Kading claimed that Diddy paid someone to murder Tupac. Diddy has consistently denied the rumors and case of Tupac death was unsolved.
