Spice 1 sat down with The Art of Dialogue for an extensive interview earlier this month. As one might imagine, the West Coast rap OG was full of colorful opinions and vivid tales involving his decades-long journey in Hip Hop.
The late Tupac Shakur proved to be a heavy topic of discussion during the interview and at one point, Spice 1 said Faith Evans — the widow of The Notorious B.I.G. — had a “friends with benefits” relationship with 2Pac in the 1990s.
“Faith, that was ‘Pac’s girl,” he says in the clip. “Not his girl, but her and ‘Pac had something together. They was fuck buddies. It’s fucked up to say this, but we’re gonna keep it real. A lot of muthafuckas — and I don’t want to kill nobody’s game or nothing — but a lot of muthafuckas, you got one bitch that you know that don’t give a fuck who you with and you don’t give a fuck who she with from infinity and into beyond, y’all fuckin. Period. And that was ‘Pac and Faith.”

Spice 1 reiterated 2Pac and Evans had nothing more beyond a physical relationship and insinuated Biggie’s friends tried to stop him from hooking up with her.
“They wasn’t in love and all of that old shit like that, but they fuckin’. Period,” he continued. “That’s gonna happen. And Biggie fell in love with Faith. We all fall in love; it’s not a fault of anyone. It happens. Bad bitch, you start liking her al lot. You fall in love. Nothing wrong with that.
“Muthafuckas try to tell you, ‘Hey, that ain’t the bitch to fuck with.’ Love is blind all the time. Everybody does this shit. We’ve all been fucked over one way or the other.”
Faith Evans and 2Pac’s alleged affair was included in the Biggie track “Hit ‘Em Up” in which he rapped, “You claim to be a player/But I fucked your wife.” But in her 2009 book, Evans denied a sexual relationship ever transpired.
In a 2014 interview with VladTV, Evans further expounded on the topic and admitted 2Pac propositioned her for sex when she went to the studio to record his 1996 All Eyez On Me single “Wonda Why They Call U Bitch.” At the time, she claimed she didn’t know 2Pac was signed to Death Row, the label at the center of the Bad Boy Entertainment beef.
Evans was married to Biggie from 1994 to 1997 when he was murdered in Los Angeles at the age of 24. In 2018, Evans exchanged vows with producer Stevie J, but they announced their split 2021.
