Suge Knight: Biggie Stole The Idea For "Get Money" From Tupac's Original "Hit 'Em Up" (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Quick history lesson: Tupac Shakur was shot and robbed on November 30th, 1994 at Quad Recording Studios. A little over a year and a half after, on June 4th, 1996, Tupac released the scathing diss record “Hit Em Up”, supposedly inspired by his belief that Biggie and Sean Combs set up the shooting. Today (April 18th), in an interview with BET, Suge Knight reveals that “Hit Em Up” was 1. an entirely different song and 2. became a diss song after Junior M.A.F.I.A. released “Get Money”.

Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s Conspiracy single “Get Money” was released on September 3rd, 1995, seven months before Tupac released “Hit Em Up”. According to Suge Knight, the Notorious B.I.G.’s then wife Faith Evans attended a studio session with Combs’ mother of his first child, Misa Hylton for the original version of “Hit Em Up” . He states that he believes it was Faith, and not Misa who leaked the information because he thinks he “made Misa feel a lot better than ‘Pac made Faith feel”:

I think it was Faith that went and told them that Pac was doing that track and he was putting some lyrics to it. So, before we can finish that track, they beat us to it and put out ‘Get Money’. But that was already pretty much what we were talking about on the track before the lyrics were even laid. So, when Faith whispered in they ear and came out with ‘Get Money’ before us, ‘Pac heard it on the radio, called me and was going crazy’.

Suge alleges that Pac believed it was infact Hylton who leaked the information to Combs and Biggie. After hearing “Get Money” on the radio, Knight alleges that ‘Pac immediately changed the original “Hit Em Up” and recorded the legendary diss song we know now.

Check out Suge explain how Pac’s “Hit Em Up” was changed to include lyrics that “would make a grown man cry” below:

    I wish this puzzy would come to NY. I’d personally want to make sure this nicca gets handled in BK. Just a nice fair one, not puzzy shi* like on the west coast.

    • soyhiphop

      But you’re a puzzy your self ha!…Cali

  • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Atleast Biggie had the nuts to go to L.A.. After that Pac incident at Quad, nicca was too scared to come back. I know the Pac niccas going to say something but its the truth and I wish both was still here and Pac from NY but as usual I miss nothing. Just keeping it 1000!

    • xuimanuel .

      What…so pac and suge in Central Park with nas and his goons was a fabrication…idiot

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        yeah ok TMZ. keep reporting on your “stories”.

      • John Davis

        Not a story google it snoop said it

    • skillz718

      you buggn tupac went back to ny after he dropped hit em up and performed with roger troutman & danny boy then after went to the clubs all thru ny he talked about it in an interview

      • Papi Peligro

        It was never coastal for New York. New York was already on. West Coast was trying to get respect and legitimacy out East. I was in Ohio and Memphis and only went to New York once. But I had a friend who would record HOT 97 and play it whenever they came back and forth. We’d buy the tapes. New York was heavy local AT THE TIME. So it wasn’t really no beef out East for someone to get hurt over being from LA or down with West Coast. Man gang banging was corny too out East. You stood on your own 2.

      • truthrevealer

        so just because he says it in an interview youre going to believe him? and how long did he stay there? 1 day? 2 days? a week? regardless of the amount of time that he stayed there, its not impressive at all. pac was BORN AND RAISED in HARLEM, NEW YORK LOL. biggie was NOT from LA and was HATED there around that time so its clear which one was the most impressive and courageous….btw biggie was in LA for 2-3 weeks before he died 😉 ….thats almost a month.

      • skillz718

        nah unlike some people i have done research he was in nyc February 17, 1996 Tupac Shakur, accompanied by Danny Boy and Roger Troutman, performs “California Love” and “I Ain’t Mad at Cha its common knowledge to pac fans, plus his interview def confirmed that he was in nyc he dissed them and then hit the clubs ,yea pac from nyc but he wasn’t the king of nyc like big….im not sure how long he stayed …but when you drop a song dissing the whole east coast and last time you was out there you got shot and still go back? THATS fukn nuts …going to l.a after pac’s death I consider that crazy as shit but you cant sit here and tell me pac didn’t have heart

  • chippc

    Most of the people that were deep in the Death Row controversies have gone on to have successful and semi-successful careers.Suge is the only one that seems to be miserably.resentful, and still stuck in them glory years. Ol Al Bundy, I scored 4 touchdowns in one game ass dude.

    • jon dubock


      • chippc

        Good lookin out my nig!

  • xuimanuel .

    • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Suge is not on their level nicca. STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • xuimanuel .

        Suge as a reputation so what…still headed the biggest selling label ever I believe in the Guinness book of

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        or NAH!

      • Kharifa HartBreaker

        lol bro he wrong lol deathrow still outsold bad boy and the funny thing is deathrow doesn’t even exist anymore

      • truthrevealer

        hold up, death row outsold bad boy? when? in 1996? lol maybe so in that year but thats because bad boy had no major releases in 1996 so of course death row outsold them THAT year. ive seen that interview though from 1996 that youre obviously going off of where pac says that death row outsold them but thats horribly misleading. im not surprised though because over the years pac, death row and death rows fans have misled people to believe some ridiculous sh!t. death row never outsold bad boy once except maybe in ’96 (for obvious reasons), and if they outsold bad boy before that too then thats clearly because death row had already been around for a few years before bad boy was even formed. actually do some research on the two companies annual revenue, record sales/certifications etc because at some point bad boy was pulling in an annual revenue of $300 million a year while death row at its peak was only pulling in $100 million. numbers dont lie 😉

      • justmathoughts

        he isnt on their level but he is a legend

    2pac had a song called ‘get money’ on his ‘r u still down’ album that was recorded in ’94’ or before , Suge is talking about the “Get money” remix beat for real hip hop fans who know whats up it came out in 95 too

  • i’mreloaded!

    Man. Pac took disrespect on wax to a whole notha level. He killed Biggie on dat ish.

    • truthrevealer

      too bad biggie and bad boy murked pac and death row’s legacy forever on Long Kiss Goodnight

  • Papi Peligro

    Lets see so Faith gave Biggie the idea to make a diss song about her. Cause Get Money is a diss song about faith. Even the video. So if it was leaked why would faith leak it. Next EZ Elpee did the beat and gave it to biggie it wasn’t the other way around. Suge and Pac were delusional.

    • Keith N.

      Read the entire article. It says after hearing “Get Money” on the radio, Pac scrapped the ORIGINAL “Hit Em Up” and recorded the diss-version.

  • therealest1

    Suge is still living in that 90s time warp. Even that knockout and blows from that barber and Akon’s goons respectively can’t knock some sense into Suge to stop living in the past.

  • SmashBandicoot

    2pac > B.I.G.

    • truthrevealer

      keep dreamin, of course youre gonna get upvotes for this because its on a death row/pac article so its not surprising in the least lol. BIG>2flop always and forever

  • Cees & Bees


  • GeniusIdiot

    Biggie’s a fraud

    • truthrevealer

      really? biggie’s the fraud? LOL, said no one ever… biggie was selling drugs back when tupac was still just a ballerina taking art classes being a fake thug actor.

  • truthrevealer

    lol @ all the Death row/pac stans congregating on here in search of something that might somehow revive their hopes to confirm their delusion that somehow death row/suge etc “won” the beef. last time i checked 2pac and biggie are both dead, so no one really won the beef. BUTTTTT if we MUST get technical, i gotta hand it to puffy and bad boy. they are clearly the victors in the beef in the long run and arguably didnt even really lose when the beef was really poppin off. i guess you could say they arguably “lost” the battle but ultimately won the war. death row completely collapsed after 2pac’s death, suge knight went to jail for years, several members and associates of death row died, death row faced legal troubles, and eventually suge knight and/or death row filed for bankruptcy in 2006 and the company was later auctioned off. on the other hand, after BIG died, bad boy still continued to experience success with multi platinum and/or gold selling acts like the LOX, mase, total, 112, puffy, etc and was at some point pulling in upwards of $300 million in revenue while death row at its peak, was only pulling in around $100 million. to this day even, bad boy and puffy continue to achieve success, with rappers and acts like french montana, machine gun kelly etc etc …now you tell me who REALLY won ….lol.
