Jay Electronica Deletes Social Media After Calling Out Eminem For "Killshot" Lyrics
Both the rapper’s Twitter and Instagram have been deleted, Pitchfork notes.
“How dare you accuse Diddy of killing Tupac while you completely look pass Jimmy Iovine and those who profited from his death the MOST,” Jay tweeted Friday prior to deleting his account. “You best tread carefully, Son, before I come tear your ivory tower down like Sulaiman done the Templar Knights.”
Following that, he wrote another tweet claiming that he “had to check” the Kamikaze rapper “for blaspheming” against Louis Farrakhan at a meeting with the Nation of Islam leader in 2003.
Previously, Em spoke about a controversial diss he directed at Tyler, the Creator on his song “Fall.”
“I think the word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like this might be too far,” Eminem said in an interview with Sway. “Because in my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it…It was one of the things that I kept going back to and going ‘I don’t feel right with this.'”
The Detroit rapper then talked about why he felt compelled to diss Tyler on the Kamikaze track and said that he took issue with comments Tyler and Earl Sweatshirt made about him in interviews and on social media.
The moments the Slim Shady rapper specifically mentioned are when Tyler tweeted about 2014’s Shady XV and called it “ass,” and when Earl said “if you still follow Eminem, you drink way too much Mountain Dew” in a 2015 interview with Spin.
“I was like, really? What the f**k,” Eminem said. “You guys were just on tour with us, we hung out, we kicked it, made jokes.” However, the “breaking point” for the rapper was when Tyler criticized his Beyoncé collaboration “Walk on Water.”
