The beef between the Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac ultimately led to their early demises. Now both artists are considered legends who were taken too young and far past their primes.
During the height of what the media dubbed the "East Coast versus West Coast rap beef," Tupac publicly claimed to have had sex with Biggie's wife Faith Evans. While Faith has repeatedly denied the claims, it helped fuel album sales and tensions between the rapper's camps were at an all-time high at the time.
Fans from the era remember the MTV interview filmed with Tupac and Suge Knight on the set of his "California Love" video, during which he and Knight mocked Biggie and Puff Daddy in front of TV cameras, insinuating that he and Faith shared an intimate night together.
That alleged night is now revealed in an new autobiography by Faith called Keep The Faith: A Memoir, in which the singer details the few encounters she had with Tupac -- one incident took place when she went to his hotel room, and it turned ugly.
NY gossip queen, Miss Info, has just leaked a few excerpts (parts one and two) from the book, which back up Faith's previous story of being used as a pawn in Tupac's game to hurt Biggie.
In the leaked page, Faith claims that during one evening in Cali, she visited Tupac's hotel room to receive payment for a collaboration she had previously done with the rapper. However, once there, Pac allegedly made sexual advances, and tried to persuade her into being his "bitch" before he'd pay her for her services.
Here's short excerpt of Faith account of the meeting:
"The situation with the money is like this," he. "If I give it to you, then you have to be 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."
Then later on, Faith says Tupac became angry after she asked for her money, cursing at her, before she stormed out of the room in tears:
"Look," I said. "You hired me to do a song. I did it. I want 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 up here is because you said --"
"So you not trying to suck my d***?"
"What!" I screamed. "What are you talking about."
Tupac raised his voice. "You know you want to suck my d***, bitch! Don't f***ing lie." I burst into tears and grabbed my purse. "I have to get out of here."
The pages leaked by Miss Info are shocking. Faith also recounts the first time meeting Pac and agreeing to collaborate on a song, and then being ambushed by the rapper at the premiere of "Waiting To Exhale."
Throughout it all, Faith maintains that she never, on any occasion, had sex with Tupac, and claims that she even told Biggie that she had agreed to do a song with him before it even took place.
From these few pages, the book seems very telling. If you'd like to get your own copy to see what else Faith reveals, it is available now in bookstores, and/or Amazon.com for just $16.50.
