Buckshot Reveals Tupac Had Beef With Diddy More Than Biggie


Buckshot Reveals Tupac Had Beef With Diddy More Than Biggie

Buckshot is a prominent rapper known for his influential role in the 1990s hip-hop scene. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he is best known as the leader of the group Black Moon and a key figure in the Boot Camp Clik collective. Black Moon, which also includes DJ Evil Dee and 5ft, gained significant recognition with their debut album “Enta Da Stage” in 1993, which is considered a classic in underground hip-hop circles.


Buckshot speaking with I Never Knew TV, the hip hop artist explains that Tupac had more of a beef with Diddy than with Notorious B.I.G. Showing disdain on the subject, he said “Biggie didn’t have beef with Pac, Pac didn’t have beef with Biggie.” Buckshot says he lived with Tupac during the time he wanted to create the One Nation album and he wanted Biggie Smalls on it.

“Them two didn’t have beef” continued the Black Moon rapper, and illustrated that Pac saw Biggie as his little brother. As big and little brothers tend to do, they had a squabble over who the little brother was hanging around according to Buckshot. “His problem was if you not going to hear me this way, you are going to hear me that way, but your going to hear me little bro,” Buckshot stated in terms of why Tupac released the diss song towards Biggie being apart of Bad Boy Records.

Buckshot continued to explain that Biggie didn’t want to get involved with all the drama that Diddy was surrounding himself. Buckshot believes Tupac died over trying to expose Diddy and Bad Boy Records and wanted to destroy it by bringing Death Row East. Buckshot being around today to see the headlines surrounding Sean Combs has made him feel vindication for Tupac, who tried to show the world who Diddy really was.

Connection to Biggie Smalls (The Notorious B.I.G.)

Buckshot’s connection to Biggie Smalls (Christopher Wallace, also known as The Notorious B.I.G.) is rooted in their mutual Brooklyn heritage and the close-knit hip-hop community of the 1990s. Both artists were emerging around the same time and shared a respect for each other’s work. Although they didn’t collaborate extensively, their careers were parallel, and they both contributed to the East Coast hip-hop scene during its pivotal years. Buckshot has spoken in interviews about the influence and respect he had for Biggie, acknowledging the impact Biggie had on the hip-hop industry.

Connection to Tupac Shakur

Buckshot’s connection to Tupac Shakur is more direct and collaborative. In the mid-1990s, Tupac reached out to Buckshot for a collaboration project. The result was a planned album that they began working on together, which was intended to be a joint effort showcasing their combined talents. However, the project was halted due to Tupac’s untimely death in 1996. Despite the incomplete nature of their collaboration, some of their work together has been released posthumously, showcasing the potential of their partnership and highlighting Buckshot’s versatility as an artist.

Buckshot’s ties to both Biggie and Tupac illustrate his significant role in the hip-hop community and his ability to bridge relationships between major figures in the East Coast and West Coast rap scenes during a time of intense rivalry.
