The East & West Coast beef between Tupac and Biggie will always go down in history as the most violent case of fiction twisting into reality. Arguably the biggest rivalry in music history, ended up in the death of both artists, just as their careers were skyrocketing. Tupac was gunned down on September 7, 1996, and died six days later, while Biggie was shot and killed six months later on March 9, 1997.
Did we possibly lose arguably these two great rappers because of infidelity with Faith Evans? Faith Evans was married to Biggie, though separated at the time that Tupac’s song “Hit Em Up” controversially came out shirking the line “You Claim to be a player, but I fucked your wife.”
In return to the posthumous Tupac, Faiths Evens in her biography defended her position:
“You know, I love New York,” he said. “But I’m not fucking with New York right now.”
The air in the room seemed to get really thick all of a sudden. His demeanor had changed so quickly that I was truly afraid.
“Really?” I asked. “Why is that?”
“Cause niggas set me up that night. You know that, right?”
I swallowed hard and took a deep breath. He was staring at me like he thought I was the one who set him up.
“You really don’t believe that bullshit,” I said.
“I’m telling you … niggas set me up,” he said in a low voice.
“Look ‘Pac, I just need to get my check and I have to go …”
“The situation with the money is like this,” he said, “If I give it to you, then you my bitch.”
“Your what,” I said, I felt a chill go up my back.
“You heard me. You gotta be my bitch.”
I got up and moved farther away from where he was standing. “I’m not anybody’s bitch,” I said, trying to keep my voice even and steady.
“You Biggie’s Bitch.”
I thought about how people always got shit wrong. He was probably thinking about the song “Me & My Bitch.” And I wasn’t with Big when he made that record.
“I’m his wife.”
“I thought y’all broke up?” he asked.
“We still married.”
“Look,” I said. You hired me to do a song. I did it. I want my money and that’s it.”
“Oh word, it’s like that? You just want your money?”“You told me it wouldn’t be a problem,” I said. “The only reason why I came uphere is because you said —“
“So you not trying to suck my dick?”
“What!” I screamed, “What are you talking about?”
Tupac raised his voice. “You know you want to suck my dick, bitch! Don’t fucking lie.” I burst into tears and grabbed my purse. “I have to get out of here.”
Tupac kept going. He was making no sense, cursing and yelling. He said something about Big and the East Coast.
“But…but…I…thought y’all was friends,” I said. At this point, I could barely speak clearly because I was crying so hard.
“Whatever. You know you wanna be my bitch,” he said, before going into the bedroom area and slamming the door.
As soon as I got my things together to leave, Tupac came back out to the common area.
“Where the fuck you going?” he asked.
“I don’t know what you thought,” I said, “I really don’t but it’s not like that.”
Tupac just nodded slowly, staring at me intently. He wasn’t ranting and screaming anymore. But he had this very sinister smile on his face. I kept looking around the room because I felt like something was about to happen to me. I wasn’t sure if those guys were coming back or what, but something was wrong.
“It’s not like that?” he kept saying over and over and nodding. “Well, aight then, you fucking bitch. You want to leave? Tell the limo driver to take you home. The limo is still out there. Get the fuck out.”
I dashed down to the lobby and called my friend Toni. I was crying and told her I was on my way to her house and that I would explain everything when I got there. I got into the limo and cried even harder. And I cried all the way to Toni’s house. I told her everything that had happened.
“What are you going to do now?” she asked me.
“I have no idea,” I said. “But you know I gotta get that check.”
“Just forget about it!” she said, “That dude is nuts.”
Most believe that Faith wrote this to clear up her image and that she was “with” Tupac, to get back at Biggie. Faith has admited to cheating on Biggie with two men. During their separation Biggie had gooked up with Lil Kim.
Big himself knew the truth, check out the lyrics of Big’s verse on Jay-Z’s Brooklyn’s Finest (which was on Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt album- 1996)- If Fay’ had twins, she’d probably have two-Pac’s Get it? .. Tu-pac’s
Ray-J, Brandy’s brother, spent alot of time around Snoop Dogg & Tupac and spoke about walking in and seeing Faith sitting on Tupac’s lap.
On YouTube there is a video of Tupac’s bodyguard without hesitation saying that Tupac and Faith had slept together.
I will leave you to make your own conclusion on this one.
