It's been over twenty years since the deaths of both Biggie Smalls and Tupac, but there are way more details to their feud than what's been told in the past. It feels like every so often, one of the associates of Biggie or Tupac shares an untold story about their beef. In a recent interview with The Art of Dialogue, one of 'Pac's collaborators revealed that Biggie's "Hypnotize" had a subliminal shot towards Faith Evans for allegedly creeping with Tupac. Biggie's hit single, "Hypnotize" had a subliminal thrown towards his wife, Faith Evans, according to Delray Richardson. Richardson was a frequent collaborator of Tupac during the rapper's life.
Richardson is a platinum-selling songwriter who has recorded songs with Dr. In a recent interview with The Art of Dialogue , the Tupac collaborator said that Hypnotize had a secret message to Faith Evans about cheating on him with 2pac. Hypnotize was a posthumous release for Biggie when it dropped on his Life After Death album on March 25, Smalls was gunned down in a fatal drive-by on March 9, But before he was robbed of his life at the young age of years-old, there were rumors swirling that his wife Faith Evans had been unfaithful and been seeing Shakur for some time.

The song's lyrics contain vicious insults to several East Coast rappers , chief among them, Shakur's former-friend-turned-rival, the Notorious B. The video, itself described as infamous, includes impersonations of Biggie, Puffy and M. Following its release, the East Coast rappers insulted in the song responded through tracks of their own. The controversy surrounding the song is due in part to Shakur's murder in a drive-by-shooting only three months after its release. The song is widely considered by the American hip hop community as one of the greatest diss tracks ever recorded due to its explicit lyrical content and the seriousness of violent intent by Shakur and his colleagues towards their rivals.
