This month Eminem released a diss track aimed at rival rapper Machine Gun Kelly
EMINEM has sparked a fresh row over the tragic murder of Tupac Shakur after he penned a lyric accusing P Diddy of killing the hip-hop legend.
The Hit Em Up rapper, real name Lesane Parish Crooks, was just 25 when he was shot four times as he left a fight on the Las Vegas strip back in 1996.

His killer has never been identified and conspiracy theories have been rife with speculation he actually survived the shooting and faked his death.
Last week, Eminem released his latest record ‘Killshot’ – which fans know was aimed at rapper Machine Gun Kelly amid the pair’s ongoing feud.
The diss track includes the lyrics: “The day you put out a hit, is the day Diddy admits he put the hit out that got ‘Pac killed.”
The song ends with the words: “And I’m just playing, Diddy, you know I love you.”

But other musicians were quick to slam the 45-year-old rapper, real name Marshall Mathers, over the comments.
In a now-deleted tweet seen by the Daily Star, US rapper Jay Electronica said: “How dare you accuse Diddy of killing Tupac.
“While you completely look pass [sic] Jimmy Iovine [music producer] and those who profited from his death the MOST.”
He added: “You best tread carefully, son, before I come tear your ivory tower down like Sulaiman done the Templar Knights.”

Rapper-turned-business mogul Diddy, whose real name is Sean John Combs, is yet to respond to Eminem’s comments.
He was the manager of The Notorious B.I.G. when he was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, California, a year after Tupac was killed.
In a similar outcome, Biggie’s murder also remains unsolved.
Diddy responded to long-term rumours that Biggie was involved in Tupac’s shooting during an interview with Sunday TODAY in 2017.
He said: “There were so many rumours and things for years… I was more concerned with the well-being of my artists, myself and my family.”
It comes as a British man came forward with bizarre claims that Tupac is still alive – and that he was part of a security team that helped smuggle him out of Vegas.
Michael Nice told TMZ: “Why you think nobody been arrested if they said they the one that killed Tupac?
“Because Tupac is not dead. If he was dead, they’d be arresting those dudes for murder.
“You know he’s somewhere smoking a Cuban cigar on an island.”
