Diddy Says He Told Biggie Not to Respond to Tupac's "Hit 'Em Up"
Diddy had a lot to say
The Drake vs. Pusha-T beef came to an end this week after Houston legend James Prince told Drake not to respond to Pusha’s “The Story of Adidon” track.
It’s a scenario Diddy can relate to. On Thursday, the rap mogul appeared on Big Boy in the Morning to talk about a whole host of things, from his TV show, The Four, to the NFL to rap beef between Drake and Pusha.
When speaking about the battle, Diddy made an interesting comparison to the beef between The Notorious B.I.G and Tupac. Diddy confirmed that he told Biggie not to respond to Tupac’s savage “Hit ‘Em Up” diss:
Like when we had got hit with “Hit ‘Em Up,” I had to make the call to Biggie and I said, ‘we not going to respond.’ Somebody’s going to get hurt if we respond.” He said, “I could understand [Drake’s] perspective because 2Pac hit us with “Hit Em Up” and that joint was cold.
Diddy also spoke about the NFL, saying he is no longer interested in owning a team (he tried to make a run at the Carolina Panthers earlier in the year). He made the decision after the NFL announced its new rules about protesting during the National Anthem.
I really wanted to go in there and be a part of the NFL, and try and be a positive change. This last move … I don’t even want to own an NFL team no more…I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men…I don’t want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can and can’t do.
