LL Cool J addressed journalist Bonsu Thompson’s belief that iconic rapper Notorious B.I.G.’s 1994 diss track “Who Shot Ya?” was about him.

“I need him to stick to his day job, and if that is his day job he might wanna reassess that sh*t,” LL told Sway Calloway on SiriusXM’s “Sway In The Morning” on Wednesday (August 2) who asked him about the rumored beef.

LL says that he and Biggie had a great relationship and he was there when Biggie wrote his lyrics.

“Nah, I got love for him, I’m just teasing. I’m just teasing, man, don’t get mad at me. No, that’s not true. I was in the studio when Biggie wrote ‘Who Shot Ya?’ Literally. Like, I was literally in the studio when he made the song. I was literally, physically in the studio with Notorious B.I.G. when he wrote ‘Who Shot Ya?’… I said ‘Biggie, yo, why you smoke so much weed when you write your joints?’ At this time, I guess he was still writing. He said, ‘It makes me feel like I’m in the track,’ and we just started laughing.”

“He was doing what rappers do: ‘Old school, new School.’ He’s saying whoever want it, can get it. That’s regular … Now it’s about selling swag, and that’s okay, I’m not judging but I’m just saying, that’s 100 percent false.”

LL later added, “B.I.G. was my man, I did ‘Flava in Your Ear’ remix, we did that together.”

“Who Shot Ya?” was released in early 1995 and is long believed to have been aimed at 2Pac, who was shot just months before at New York City’s Quad Studios, where Biggie was upstairs recording at the time.
