P Diddy has responded to Eminems epic diss track Killshot – but fans might never hear it.
Eminem, 45, raised eyebrows with the track, mostly aimed at Machine Gun Kelly, when he jokingly accuses Diddy, 48, of setting up Tupac Shakurs death.
While Diddy has not publicly responded, the music mogul is said to have reached out to Eminem privately and is handling the situation behind-the-scenes.
Joe Budden, who is also feuding with Slim Shady, made the revelation during the latest episode of his podcast alongside Rory and Mal, released on Thursday.
The Pump It Up rapper revealed to listeners: Puff said its in his hands and he said I could say it. He said, “Theres nothing to say about it. Its in my hands”.
Clearly worried about what Diddy actually meant, Joe, 38, decided to remove himself from the situation after playing messenger for his Revolt TV boss, adding: This is bigger than rap. Thats bigger than rap. And Im getting out of here because Im afraid.
Sounds rather ominous.
Eminem name-dropped Diddy several times throughout Killshot, but his most jaw-dropping lyric came when he appeared to blame the rap executive of being involved with Tupacs fatal drive-by shooting in September 1996.
The lyric states: Killshot, I will not fail, Im with the Doc still / But this idiots boss pops pills and tells him hes got skills / But, Kells, the day you put out a hits the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed, ah!
In a last-minute attempt to redeem himself and soften the blow, Em closes the diss track: And Im just playin Diddy, you know I love for you.
Not sure he feels the same way, Em.
Rapper Jay Electronica was particularly furious about Eminems comment and deleted his Twitter account but not before writing: How dare you accuse diddy of killing tupac while you completely look pass jimmy iovine and those who profited from his death the MOST.
