Jay Electronica makes his annual appearance

On Friday, September 14th Eminem dropped “Killshot,” a savage diss directed towards MGK.

There was one person who was not a fan of the song: mysterious rapper Jay Electronica.

Jay directed some tweets towards Eminem. Jay’s beef? He didn’t like the fact that Em had a line about Diddy killing Tupac on the track. The specific line Em spits is: “The day you put out a hit is the day Diddy admits he put out the hit that got Pac killed.”

Now, maybe Jay didn’t listen to the whole track, but at the end of the song Eminem says the Diddy line was a joke. But, whatever. This is where at now. We just have to accept it.

Jay also sent en Em a video of Farrakhan sitting down with Ja Rule, writing “remember this was the very video I had to check you on…”
