A few months ago, Warren G sat down on an episode of Drink Champs to discuss a variety of topics. Included among them was 2pac, who Warren claims to have been a silent ally of. During the interview, he claims that he was attempting to bail the rapper out of jail in 1995 but was beat to the punch by someone else. Initially, nobody questioned his narrative. But when Suge Knight recently started his new podcast it was one of the first things he tackled.

“Warren G, best stop lying — you didn’t f*ck with ’Pac and ’Pac didn’t f*ck with you. On top of that, you couldn’t take care of yourself, how were you gonna get ’Pac out of prison? Everybody, all of a sudden, they want to get ’Pac out of prison," Suge explained. The clip began the make the rounds online and it's no surprise that eventually Warren himself heard it. In his response, he didn't mince words about his status and influence during the period of time being discussed. Check out his full response below.
