Yesterday (September 14), international rapper Eminem shocked the world Hip Hop circle with a shocking ‘revelation’ as he dropped the anticipated “Killshot” diss track aimed at rapper Machine Gun Kelly.
Slim Shady, 45, came with his full armoury as he made to obliterate MGK who had earlier fired a diss track at the rap god for mentioning him on his recently released surprise album ‘Kimakaze’.
Not one who is new to controversy, Eminem on his new diss track has a line, in which he seems to have stirred ‘peaceful waters’. With this particular line, “This idiot’s boss pops pills and tells him that he got skills/But Kells, the day you put out a hit, is the day Diddy admits he put the hit out that got ‘Pac killed,” Eminem suggestively ‘implicated’ Bad Boy Records boss Diddy in Tupac Shakur’s murder.
As expected, social media went into overdrive after hearing the “Killshot” line with some observes actually believing there may be some substance in Eminem’s claims.
As most Hip Hop disciples know, the Tupacs 1996 murder case remains unsolved to this day. In fact, (Thursday) September 13 marked 22 years since the rap icon was fatally shot during a drive-by in Las Vegas.
While this is a bold accusation, in typical Eminem fashion, he insists he’s joking at the end of the song. “And I’m just playin’, Diddy, you know I love you,” he says, similar to the cheeky endings of past glory such as “Kill You” and “White America.”
Whether this statement would be taken seriously by law enforcement remains to be known.
