Diddy’s Reply to Eminem’s Prior Claim He Killed Tupac Resurfaces Amid Investigation

Sean “Diddy” Combs‘ bizarre it was “handled” reply to Eminem‘s claim that he put out a hit on Tupac Shakur has resurfaced — and sparked yet more controversy for the embattled music mogul.

Diddy’s response to the rapper’s 2018 diss track “Killshot,” which tied him to the murder of the late rap icon, has resurfaced as Diddy is entangled in lawsuits and home raids.

In the song Eminem, 51, rapped: “Kells, the day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed, ah!” in reference to the infamous 1996 drive-by shooting drive in which the legendary rapper was murdered.

Following the release of the track, Diddy, 54, responded in a now-deleted episode of Joe Budden‘s YouTube series.

During his guest appearance, he shared a very cryptic reaction, telling listeners that the situation with Eminem was “handled” privately, adding: “He said, ‘There’s nothing to say about it.’ It’s in my hands. He wild.”

Eminem later claimed that the lyrics were a joke. According to reports by a British entertainment magazine, rapper Jay Electronica came to Diddy’s defense at the time, writing via X: “How dare you accuse Diddy of killing Tupac… You best tread carefully, son, before I come tear your ivory tower down like Sulaiman done the Templar Knights.”

Diddy managed Tupac’s rival the Notorious B.I.G., who was also murdered in a drive-by shooting in the early hours of March 9, 1997, in Los Angeles at age 24. Diddy has long fended off internet trolling and rumors that he had some involvement in Tupac’s death.

There have, however, been new updates in the murder case. Last September, Keefe D was arrested and charged with allegedly providing the weapon in Tupac’s slaying. Keefe D’s trial is scheduled for November 4. In the meantime, Diddy has been facing his own legal woes.

Diddy is currently the subject of a federal sex trafficking investigation. He has denied all the allegations, calling them “sickening.”

News broke on March 25 that Homeland Security had raided his properties in Los Angeles and Miami. According to the law enforcement agency, the raids were connected to an ongoing federal sex trafficking investigation.

Diddy was not on site when either of the raids occurred, though reports claimed that his sons King, 26, and Justin, 30, had been home. TMZ reported that both King and Justin were detained by police and released several hours later.

Diddy has not been charged or arrested in connection to the investigation, and a lawyer denied the music mogul’s involvement. King, meanwhile, is being sued for sexual assault.

A new lawsuit filed Thursday, April 4, in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleges that King sexually assaulted a woman while she was working on a yacht that his music mogul father chartered for a trip in 2022.

A lawyer for King slammed the attorney representing the woman accusing King of assault.

Aaron Dyer cautioned the public to meet the potential lawsuit with skepticism, pointing the finger at the accuser’s attorney, Tyrone Blackburn, who also represents Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones. Lil Rod filed a lawsuit against Diddy earlier this year, accusing his former boss of sex trafficking and sexual assault.

Dyer said in a statement to Us Weekly, “We have not seen this woman’s claim but I’m sure we can expect the same kind of manufactured lies … just as we saw in Rodney Jones’ lawsuit — which has yet to be served.”
