Diddy draws a parallel between 2Pac and Biggie and Drake and Pusha T’s beef.
Everyone’s been talking about the Drake and Pusha T beef, even after J. Prince and Kanye West called it off. Many have compared their feud to the East Coast/West Coast beef between 2Pac and Biggie. Diddy is one of the people who drew a parallel to the beef he was involved in during the 90’s and Drake and Pusha’s back and forth. He seen how the beef between Pac and Biggie escalated during the time, especially after the release of “Hit ‘Em Up.” However, in a recent interview, Diddy revealed that he pulled J. Prince to Biggie following the release of one of the greatest diss tracks ever released.
Diddy recently sat down with Big Boy to talk about his show, The Four, Drake and Pusha T’s beef and more. He ended up revealing his reaction to 2Pac’s “Hit ‘Em Up” after first hearing it. He explained that he respected Drake for not responding to Pusha T and that he ended up making a similar call during the peak of Bad Boy.
“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.”
However, Diddy explained that when the song first came on in a party, he’d end up taking the DJ’s turntables. However, Diddy says he didn’t necessarily feel a type of way about Pac’s diss track. He actually admitted that he found the music video humorous. But, he won’t be playing it at his birthday party any time soon.
