Here’s a blast from the past with a little updated razzle dazzle that I bet you didn’t see coming. This new conspiracy theory points to a 15-year-old Ray J as the source of this well known beef.
Recently, social media has recognized Ray J as an often-forgotten player in many of the culture’s moments. Vince Staples even once boldly claimed, “Everything we love is directly related to Ray J.” Folks started to link Brandy’s brother to some major moments in history with Whitney Houston’s death and Tupac and Biggie’s beef being among them.
In a viral social media thread, conspiracy theorists now believe that the TV personality may be responsible for igniting the infamous East Coast vs. West Coast beef between Tupac and Biggie. In an alleged 2008 interview Rhapsody, Ray J spoke candidly about his experiences growing up around many Hip Hop legends as the cousin of Snoop Dogg, including a time he walked in on Faith Evans, who had a relationship with Biggie, sitting on Tupac’s lap.
“25 years ago today, Tupac drops Hit Em Up,” explained the tweet, referring to the track Pac debuted where he suggested he and Faith had sexual relations. “Faith says nothing happened Snoop’s cousin is running around Death Row He’s only 15 He says he saw Faith sitting on Tupac’s lap in the studio Wait a minute ain’t that…,” finished the tweet, attaching a photo of a young Brandy and Ray J.
Although Faith denied the allegations in her memoir, Ray J seemingly confirmed the rumors of Pac and Faith’s intimate relationship. “We walked in one day and Faith was sitting on Pac’s lap while Pac was writing a verse. It was like, ‘What the f–k is going on?” said Ray J in a previous interview with Rhapsody.

He added, “That was one of the craziest sights, dog. Faith was in Pac’s lap. I was like, ‘What the f–k? I know I’m not? Is that? It can’t?’ Three weeks later, ‘Hit Em Up’ came out.”
In response to the viral conspiracy thread, one user posed, “So you’re telling me. If Ray J didn’t exist, Tupac, biggie would still be alive and Kardashian clan would be no more? Looks like it’s my mission to convince someone’s momma to swallow.”
Another user joked, “Bruh… Ray J May not have started the Pac/B.I.G beef but he brought the kerosene.” What are your thoughts on the convincing argument?
Bruh… Ray J May not have started the Pac/B.I.G beef but he brought the kerosene.

Are you really surprised Ray J was in the studio when Pac had Faith sitting on his lap?
It’s fucking Ray J. He was probably at the Last Supper.
