Diddy Responds to Allegations that Biggie Smalls Played a Part in Tupac Shakur's Death

Diddy has opened up about the death of his dear friend Biggie and how Tupac's shooting death impacted the hip-hop community.

In a new interview with Willie Geist for Sunday TODAY,  the music mogul revealed that when Tupac died on September 13, 1996 (only six months prior to Biggie's own passing), "it really resonated that things are really dangerous."

There were allegations that Biggie  played a part in Tupac's murder, but he denied such claims and the Wallace family has provided an alleged alibi. The late rappers publicly feuded for years, but Diddy says he didn't pay much attention to their bad blood.
"There were so many rumors and things for years that I was more concerned with the well being of my artists, myself and my family," he explained. 

On March 9, 1997, an unidentified assailant shot and killed Biggie in Los Angeles.

How would the rap game have changed if Biggie were still alive today? Diddy told Geist that he thinks about it all the time. "What direction would rap go into?" Diddy asked rhetorically, also mentioning that he often wonders, "How would this concert be if he was here?"

A lot of questions swirl around Diddy's mind but one thing is for sure: "It's incomplete without him being there."
