Did Puff really have ‘Pac set up?

Damn near 15 years after the fact, and these ‘Pac stans are still trying to throw the Notorious B.I.G. under a bus. You’d think that after a while they’d just give in to the fact that 2Pac was an inferior artist, and a douche, and that if it wasn’t for his BS, both him and Biggie would still be alive today. But apparently not.

Today, the LA Times is running with a story that suggests that Biggie and Puffy (he really should go back to calling himself Puffy) had something to do with ‘Pac getting set up, robbed, and shot in the lobby of the Quad recording studio in 1994, as ‘Pac himself often suggested in the wake of the incident.

According to the story by Chuck Philips, Jimmy Henchmen, whom you’ll recall manages The Game these days, Haitian Jack, one of the guys who caught a rape charge with ‘Pac but somehow avoided doing time (hmm…), and this Italian kid whose father was supposedly a boss with the Colombo crime family were trying to get ‘Pac to sign with Bad Boy, but ‘Pac wasn’t feeling it.

So in retaliation, these guys had ‘Pac set up that night at Quad. ‘Pac’s boy Randy “Stretch” Walker let them know when he’d be arriving at the studio. They were just gonna beat him up and rob him, but ‘Pac pulled a gun out and shot himself in the nuts, so they shot him four times – maybe because they feared he’d shoot them, or maybe because they felt any guy who shoots himself in the nuts deserves to get shot four times on GP.

Obviously it’s hard to say for certain, but I’m hoping it’s the latter.

Where Big and Puff fit into this is that they were both on the 10th floor of the building where this took place, and supposedly they’d been made aware that this was gonna happen beforehand. They could have told ‘Pac, but they didn’t. And the reason we know this is because there was a guy there who was an FBI informant. Supposedly, he was up there with Big and Puff when the shots rang out, and the two of them didn’t seem surprised in the least bit.

Hmm…

This story actually isn’t altogether different from the version of the events that emerged way back when – the main difference being the Jimmy Henchmen trying to sign ‘Pac to Bad Boy angle, and the testimony by this FBI informant that Big and Puff knew about the plot beforehand. As far as I’m concerned, this version of the events doesn’t seem right for a couple of reasons.

First of all, if Jimmy Henchmen and the rest of these guys really were trying to sign ‘Pac to Bad Boy, how come we’re just now hearing about it? As much as ‘Pac loved to talk shit in general, let alone about his beef with Bad Boy and this incident in particular, I’ve never heard such a thing. And I’ve been following this shit since I was in high school. You’d think that this would have been a vital aspect of his side of the story, no?

It doesn’t seem unreasonable to me to believe that Jimmy Henchmen had something to do with this, since he was there and since his reputation precedes him. But how come it couldn’t just be that ‘Pac was running with Henchmen and the rest of these guys because he had a tendency to align himself with bad people; and that Henchmen and his crew had ‘Pac set up not because he wouldn’t sign to Bad Boy, but because he was wearing a $40,000 chain and he looked like a mark?

As far as whether or not Big and Puff had anything to do with it, I’m gonna suggest that they didn’t, for a couple of reasons. First of all, I’m a Biggie stan to the end. Second of all, Chuck Philips’ main evidence that this is the case comes from an unnamed FBI informant, and my tendency is to not want to believe any claims made unnamed FBI informants. For all we know, this could just be some jail house snitch looking for time off of his sentence.

And if you notice, that’s the closest thing Philips has to an actual smoking gun here. There’s no taped phone calls of this guy and Diddy talking about how Diddy knew ‘Pac was about to get robbed. There isn’t anyone else from the staff of Bad Boy at the time corroborating the claim that they were trying to sign ‘Pac. We don’t even know who this informant is. For all we know, it could be one of the numerous people Diddy has beaten over the head with a champagne bottle over the years.

Shit, it could be Positive K.

You’ll recall that this guy Chuck Philips tried to pull something similar back when I was in college. There was another big story by him in the LA Times, claiming that Biggie was in Las Vegas the night ‘Pac got shot there, and that he paid some Crips to do it. I’m pretty sure his source that time was just some Crip who made that shit up. Diddy actually ended up producing the logs from the studio showing that Biggie was in New York at the time recording that song “Nasty Boy.”

Which of course begs the question: Why is it that Chuck Philips keeps trying to pull this same bullshit again and again, years after the fact? My guess, especially after reading this most recent story, punctuated as it is with quotes from the Makaveli album, is that this guy Chuck Philips is just that committed a ‘Pac stan. I bet if you went to his house, he’d have a big-ass shrine to 2Pac in his garage. Just like that cop who killed Biggie.

  • Nate

    first

  • JOVA

    I agree with you Bol in that I feel B.I.G didnt have anything to do with Pac getting shot at The Quad. I think Rosemond set him up cause how did the pussys that robbed Pac know he was gonna be there. Someone had to of told them Pac was coming. I think Rosemond knew B.I.G was recording at The Quad, and thought to himself let me set Pac up and then he will blame B.I.G for it.

    One other thing…how Gayme gonna ride with “Henchman” knowing that he probably was the one that setup Pac at The Quad. Gayme is a punk. I got a friend that work at the jail that Gayme was at, and he said that they would play 50 cent and Gayme would whine like a bitch!!

    does anyone really care? I mean really tho. Let these niggas rest in peace and move the fuck on. There are multiple unsloved homicides in this country everyday…. Stop reminding the public about a crime from 15 years earlier when you have no new developments of substance. Also, I smell me a hefty lawsuit….accusing motherfuckers of shit without evidence can be defamation….im no lawyer but im sayin.

    One time, I saw biggie talking to an arab. I know that biggie new about 9-11….cause someone told me so.

    Fuck outta here….

  • b-ease

    This story rings alot truer than the “gun” one. But that’s mainly because it’s all shit we already knew.

    On another note, I always thought the idea of BIG giving the gun that killed Tupac was fantastic, so I choose to believe both stories. Even though they attempt to paint Chris in a bad light, for any true BIG fan, both these articles are just further proof of the GOATS gulliness.

  • SUPREME BLACKMAN

    Here you go again “FAT BOY” Pac was an inferior rapper compared to Biggie. Yeah right so was Biggie riding Pac’s dick all the time. Bad Boy was just getting started and probably did want to sign Pac, Biggie and Puff wasn’t big then, do your research, your fat ass wasn’t there and your “twinkie eating ass” don’t know shit. Go marry a fat white chick since you don’t like sisters anyway you “FAGGOT”.

    anybody with the common sense of a slug knows Big and Puff had absolutely nothing to do with tupacs murder.

    BoL, I like Biggie 2 but I thought U were the type of N Word that would just call a spade a space dawg? They did Pac dirty however U wanna slice it, whatever the reason they set dude up and that was a bitch move. U can’t say Biggie wasn’t in on it cause who knows what a man will do when he knows his wife wants 2 fuck or is gettin her bottom knocked out by one of his old best friends. All the proof is in the now famous video after 2pac was shot all you have 2 do is look at the look on Biggie’s face and especially Puffy’s face as they are coming up outta Quad that night. Who do U think 2pac was flipping off at the time in that famous pic, a hole? I could go into a whole bunch of other facts from people on the inside and from shit I heard from the horses mouth but if U peep that 1 thing real hard it will be all the proof that one really needs 2 see, my nig.

    Well, you have just lost one reader of your blog (notice i didn’t say fan) becuz you always be coming with off the wall shit. First off, this comment right here “You’d think that after a while they’d just give in to the fact that 2Pac was an inferior artist, and a douche, and that if it wasn’t for his BS” Whoa , home boy, you have completely lost your damn mind. Tupac was the best, is the best and will forever be the best. Sure Biggie made the Hoes shake their asses and the the thug ass nigga go cop some crack and rob each other, but what did he do for the people, nothing. What did he give back to society. He didn’t talk about the social and political injustices that young blacks were faced with back then, no he glorified the stupid shit that got us in this position in the first place. Man, whatever XXl.com got you smokin, you might need to get some of that good shit, cuz you done lost yo damn mind. And for the record I have never agree with none of your post, just read them just to see what dumb shit you will be saying for the day.

    How come Biggie’s mother and his wife said he was at home in New Jersey recovering from a car accident? It was in both of their statements to the press.

    And I don’t know ’bout you dawg, but producing studio logs from the company I own? Well, let’s just say it doesn’t strike me as difficult.

    first off Biggie bit Pacs style in 94 and he wasnt no fukn player as he claimed in his music!they knew that pac was gonna get robbed and if they didnt know ahead of time they had enuff juice to find out who did it after the fact!Biggie after Pacs death thought it was all good and he could come to the west and blaze trees wid da geez they filled him up wid lead when he came to the west!as soon as pac died it was just a matter of time before

They tell me stories about how he used to get bitched by Anthony Jones and Poppy Eyed Pete(look them up they were big time drug dealers in East B-more). Pac was a nerd who, went to The School of the Arts in West Bmore to become an actor. Poppy Eyed Pete got footage of him beating Pac bitch ass up; Stomping him out on Biddle St. & Montford St. East Bmore. Then Pac play this tuff role when he start rappin. Niggas ran his ass back to New York. He never brought his ass back to Bmore after he got a little money. He a Bitch. We only fuck wit Biggie in Bmore Niggas. True Story Yo

    This whole Tupac was a “conscious” artist thing is bullshit. If you take dude’s entire catalog, less than 10% is polical/socially aware. The rest it is the same ignorant shit Biggie was talking but at a much lower skill level.

    • Chaka

      @b-ease,
      My brother you dont know what you saying.I dont think you have really taken your time to listen to Pac.You are just one of those B.I.G fans,like the guy that has this blog,that is why you are too blind to see that all what you said about Pac in your post,does not apply to him but to Biggie.Lets be true to ourselves,Biggie was never a “conscious” artist.Political and social issues were never his thing.He was damn to materialistic in his raps.I remember many east coast rappers in his day(e.g Jeru d Damaja,ODB e.t.c)accusing him and the entire badboy camp of having no substance in the rap records they were putting out.Infact,Biggie,Puffy and Mase can literially be dubbed the predecessors of all those rappers today who are killing hip hop with their materialistic rappers.Peace an hip hop head in Africa wrote.

      • Chaka

        correction:”who are killing hip hop with their materialistic raps”.

        • Iceberg Slimm

          In all honesty, Puff and Big did start materialism in hip hop, but that’s not the problem with hip hop. Hip hop’s problem is the business side of it. If labels weren’t signing acts such as Souljah Boy, Hurricane Chris or Yung Berg, it would still have talent and substance in it. Biggie and Puff and them didn’t make bullshit, they made music. The music’s topics might have been bullshit, but the lyrics and song qualities were far from that. Lyrically Pac couldn’t touch Big. Listen to “Unbelievable”, “Me & My Bitch” or “Kick in the Door” and tell me if you really think Pac is better.

          And seriously when Pac died, he was barely into that positive shit. Yea, his early creer was but there were maybe three positive songs on All Eyez and ZERO on Makaveli. His mother made all that positive shit after he died because she didn’t want that image about him. Before he died he was tryna jump niggas and shit, but was a dancer for Shock G when he first came out.

          And like Bol said, he made up that bullshit a couple years ago about Big being in Vegas and all that shit. So why is he credible?

        • Chaka

          True,as in lyrical skills,Biggie was better.But,as in lyrical content,Pac was better.To me when it comes to rating an artist,lyrical content plays a more important role than lyrical skills.If not why do some east coast heads have a problem with some southern rappers like Lil’Wayne?Is lyrical content not the real issue here?If the the real issue here were lyrical skills,and not lyrical content,then no one can really fault Wayne because that brother is on point as in lyrical skills.To me what Wayne lacks is lyrical content.My brother as much as we love Biggie let the truth be told,HE LACKS SUBSTANCE IN HIS RAPS.Materialism was his thing and not real live issues.Peace

    ha ha, it kills me when people say how “skilled” Biggie was. I listened to some of his songs just the other day and a bunch of it was corny as hell.

    But in high school when All eyez on me came out and whatever that double disc biggie album came out, they were both the sh!t!

    But I wouldnt say that either of them blew my mind with their lyrics, they just had the best production and the most hype behind them. Their lyrics were always solid though.

    ofcourse diddy was involved. tupac was trying to take down the bad boy dynasty and it felt like it might work for a minute. diddy got dough, pac’s only enemy, anyone who doesn’t believe diddy was involved gotta say why not, when its this obvious.

    Not only did you not make a professional analysis,before writting the rubbish you did.Having no respect for the dead is even worse,i don’t know what college you went to,i bet is very low level one with not much discipline implemented into your fat head.I think you are bitter because you are very Ugly and a little bit of education and can’t
    accept the fact there people with less intelligentsia, can have a great impact on the world.The educated black men like as should lead the younger one’s into light(truth)and accept the ill’s of our community and confront it.We are alway’s screaming about our problem’s and stating the authorities are not helping(in state and the UK)then when someone tries help initiate a debate on one of thousand’s of unsolve murder’s then uncle tom’s like you behaving very childishly, ignorant torser…

    Pac was the greatest rapper of all time. Not cause of flow, a lot of rappers are better at that, especially Biggie, but because of how he can touch on subjects in 12 bars that people can really relate to and take something from it.

    FUCK YOU BOL.

    Even now pac got hits out that make these rappers look like fools.

    Damn near 15 years after the fact, and these ‘Pac stans are still trying to throw the Notorious B.I.G. under a bus. You’d think that after a while they’d just give in to the fact that 2Pac was an inferior artist, and a douche, and that if it wasn’t for his BS, both him and Biggie would still be alive today. But apparently not.

    CO-Fuckin Sign….i dont need to read the rest

    BOL- U HAVE NO STREET CRED!!

    whoever wrote this blog is an ignorant bitch to say that “2Pac was an inferior artist, and a douche” is simply idiotic. 2pac’s music has influenced people from all around the world and continues to be reviewed. In fact 2pac’s has a class on his music at harvard, ucla and stanford. Biggies music is studied on the street corner, I mean the man only came out with two Cd’s and none of his music had a social or spiritual message like 2pac. Look Puffy and Jimmy know more than they are letting on don’t be stupid anyone with street knowledge knows that if someone like biggie is in a studio he has a crew with him on the floor and downstaris so if they didnt have something to do with it they know who did it. Don’t be stupid and if u live in the burbs and don’t know about this life don’t write on it…..

    Bol is a bitch. I wish cancer upon you.

  • stoneyisland

    NOTHING gets niggas fired up as much as a who was better dicussion Big or Pac, this alone is whats wrong with black people instead of wasting energy arguing over the stupidest shit of all time ask yourself which is more important to your kids..READING or MATH thats the only fucking debate black folk should be talking about. 2 dead rappers does not influence my everyday struggle, gas cost 4 muthafucking dollars a gallon! lets debate that shit. Fuck Rap music, from here on out I am getting down with country and western:) the life expectency is longer, when was the last time Gart Brooks busted a cap at the oakridge boys in the studio? :):):)

  • Cincinnati Stand Up!

    Awww, man Toilet Bol, you done gone and did it!!!

    First off, you dismiss the fact that people was there to rob him, and you make it sound like he was at fault. If you was bout to get robbed and you got a gun on you, you would pull the mufucka out Wild West style in the heat of the reaction. Don’t get it twisted like he brought this on himself, talking bout some jewelry and shit. That shit had nothin to do with it, cuz they was settin him up before he even went to the studio; the robbers didn’t know if he was comin in sweats and Fila’s or a button down and jewelry.

    And to say they didn’t know was also bullshit I believe. Pac and Big didn’t have beef before this incident, they were actually cool. Pac didn’t wanna sign to BadBoy, so Puff got mad. B.I.G. was playin his role like Yayo to 50, and he started to despise Pac. If they didn’t set him up, they at least knew about it. If not, why wouldn’t they go to the hospital to check on him. If they didn’t have beef before that incident, why didn’t they at least go check on him?

    Bol, you go all the way out of your fat ass way to express your opinion, and sway from what the actual L.A. Times article read, and basically co-signed what Diddy and Henchman was sayin.

    Let’s say for example I want to sign you and manage you as an artist because everyone is buying into you. You are the trend. You decline. I get mad. I have one of my flunkies call you to my city to do a song with one of my artists. You like money. You accept. When you get there I have people waiting. My people rob you, beat you, shoot you, leave you for dead.
    You don’t die. You found out I was in the same building as you when you got shot. I don’t come to check on you…but I just wanted to sign you to my label and you said no.
    Something is fishy. Bol’s twat..lol.

    Get the picture Bol. You don’t die!! Instead, you vow vengeance on me for setting you up.

    12 years after you die, evidence comes up that points to me. I deny. An aspiring journalist agrees with me; and not only that but he also has no empathy to the fact that your obese, worthless, disgustingly nasty individual deserved to be shot and killed because of his gluttonus ways. He was a monstrosity, I mean, his fat ass would order a pizza, go to Mickey D’s and order a #3 and #5, and eat that before the pizza arrived. His fat ass deserved to die….hungry.

    How would you feel?
    Better yet, how would you feel if you knew I set you up and no one beleived you?

    You are a disgrace to simple sentences.

      i bet some spitzer stacks that your favorite rapper is plies. You should be banned for life….no lie.

      • Chaka

        I kind of agree with Ali,Biggie is the most oaverated rapper of all time.I can dub him a dope lyricist or even a great artist but to me,he is no legend.That term ‘legend’ belong to only a selected few,and Biggie is not one of them.The fact that he has a little amount of work out there is even enough to rule him out of being called a legend.Peace

  • rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    byron crawford its better u look at urself before dissin pac, for wat i see ure a white man in a black man body…..fuck you byron crawford

  • JAY STONE

  • JAY STONE

    biggie was big in the streets before ready to die hit.. he was getting heavy spins.. sort of like 50cent before his album… pac aint a thug either he went to peotry classes.. before he rapped.. he got shot up and got with death row and started to act like a thug and give off the thug image.. and biggie was getting heavy spins.. and pac was feeding off of biggies money buy beefing with big cause he thought biggie set him up.. pacs albums before the biggie stuff didnt sell that much.. it was the biggie beef that he got people to listen to him with.. biggie being a real street cat.. kept sayin to calm down cause beef dont happen on records.. and took tupac as a joke.. cause he knew pac well.. he wasnt no thug.. that all these herbs think he was

  • Combat Jack

    ^”And Bol What the fuck is your deal with Pac, man you need to get drunk an pay Me Against the world, And All eyes on me all the way through this next weekend. Shit will change your life.”

    Yeah, I see this happening sometime soon. Pshaw!

  • Gay Stone

    Nigga I was around when Pac was with Digital Underground, and he was dancing to get on! Pac was kicked out of the house from his mom’s spot in Marin(Just across the bridge 30 min away from Oakland.). The nigga was stay’n with friends, and hustling in tha Towm(That’s Oakland nigga)just to keep eat’n. I remember that he was a funny dude, lots of jokes, and he kept it real with you. But this you don’t know about “Bay livin,” niggaz is notorious for steppen up to whatever level a nigga bring’n your way. So I can be smooth az lotion 1 minute, and rougher than ur lowest grade sand paper if that’s what the situation calls for. I don’t think Pac wanted to be a thug or gangsta, but the life and rap environment he lived dictated that he be so.
    I too notice that Pac was leaving the arena of politcal rap for the gangsta life, and it was sad because the political past he was raised from gave him insight that very few possessed.

    When I learned of his ambush, I thought that he would pull through, and return back to the social-political-blackpanther-type movement

    I later learned that Pac had already made moves to leave deathrow, and refocus himself in the direction of his social-political past. It is also feasable that his return to awake the masses, and expose the enemy of the ghetto, that got him murked.

    In conclusion, fuck you Pac haterz, rest-in-peace to Pac’s & BIG’s family
