    Kirk Burrowes, ex-president of Bad Boy Entertainment, is making explosive claims in new court papers which implicate Sean 'P Diddy' Combs in the 1995 murder of Suge Knight's bodyguard and accuse his conglomerate of ordering the hit on Tupac Shakur.

    In legal filings obtained by The New York Post, Burrowes claims the mogul set up an "enterprise" of thuggish associates "to gain power, recognition, fame and financial gain through acts and threats involving murder, mayhem and extortion via the enterprise."

    Burrowes, godfather to Diddy's son, Justin, makes the extraordinary claims as part of a $25 million suit in Manhattan federal court. The disgruntled label exec says he enjoyed a "very close, family-like relationship" with Combs before their relationship erupted. This past June, he filed the legal action, claiming Diddy cheated him out of $25 million, threatened him with a baseball bat and undermined his management deal with rap diva Mary J. Blige.

    [More about the events]

    High-powered lawyers for Sean "P. Diddy" Combs lashed out at his former business partner yesterday, claiming he was blackmailing the rap mogul by implicating him in two murders.

    Kirk Burrowes, the godfather of one of Combs' sons and an ex-president of his rap conglomerate Bad Boy Entertainment, makes a series of shocking allegations as part of a $25 million legal suit against the high-living rapper.

    It includes claims Combs and his rap conglomerate were behind the slayings of Suge Knight's bodyguard Jai "Big Jake" Hassan in 1995 and top performer Tupac Shakur in 1996.

    Combs' lawyer Benjamin Brafman said Combs would not be "blackmailed into submission" by a "former disgruntled employee" looking for money.

    He said the claims were "completely baseless" and had already been investigated by law-enforcement authorities.

    Burrowes' lawyer John Bostany, who clashed with Brafman in a brief but heated exchange after a court hearing yesterday, claimed his client was "concerned for his safety."

    He said Combs' legal team was "trying to escape answering for [Combs'] corrupt acts by making technical arguments."
    "With the consent, approval and ratification of the [Bad Boy] enterprise, Suge Knight's chief bodyguard "Big Jake" was murdered in 1995," Burrowes says in a sworn legal statement. Allegedly, the bodyguard was killed soon after Combs' "advance man" got into an "East Coast-West Coast bashing contest" at an Atlanta party. A local deputy sheriff, who was later killed in a "mysterious car accident," identified Combs' "advance man" - a convicted felon named Anthony Jones - as the shooter, claims Burrowes.

    Burrowes also accuses Bad Boy Entertainment of hiring the shooter who killed Tupac. Burrowes did not offer more detail on this in his sworn 37-page statement.

    Burrowes lawyer John Bostany will argue in court today for Burrowes' new claims of violence to be admitted to the case. "My client appears to be the victim of a corrupt group that 'thugs its way through it' and I am here to help him get justice," Bostany said yesterday.

    Additionally, Burrowes accuses Combs of the champagne-bottle attack on April 15, 1999 against Universal Records exec Steve Stoute - an attack Diddy admitted to and apologized for. Burrowes continues naming Roy Reid and Dante Dixon, alleged members of Diddy's "enterprise" were directed by Combs to threaten, harass and stalk John Bentley, a songwriter and owner of Calidelphia Records.

    Combs lawyer Benjamin Brafman said yesterday Burrowes' claims are "entirely baseless" and "without merit."

    Maybe passion was the wrong word to use, I would instead say "lyrical content". You could spit a million hot lines about how many cars you got. Lyrical content and skills go hand in hand.

    Could someone tell me what kind of point I was trying to make? I thought I just said Tupac was undeniably successful. I don't remember saying success makes anyone good.

    I don't dislike Pac for not being able to freestyle/battle, I just don't like his shit. I mean, people talk about how Pac was such a great poet, but once you start getting into REAL poetry and spoken word, you realize that Pac was not very good at poetry at all.
    Sage Francis, Slug, and Saul Williams are good poets. Tupac is just mediocre (sp?) if you ask me.

    As far as poetry is concerned, Slug doesn't even write poetry. I also don't know how one could measure poetry in terms of skill... I don't believe that's what poetry is meant for.

    Tupac may not have had flow like some arists, or poetic genius that others have. But if Tupac had not let the gang banging ideals get in to his head and was given a mentor to help hone his already exsisting concepts he could have been a legend. But he allowed himself to become part of a life style that he had the opportunity to stay away from. If you watch interviews of him when he was 17,18, 19 that cat was intellectual, charasmatic and articulate, characteristics of the greatest leaders. He unfortunately allowed his anger to get in the way of his message at times. But no one can deny that there were messages that came from him about the oppression of people not just by colour but class and sex (women) how many other emcees are doing that.
