See the fucked up thing is that I love you
You know what I’m saying
It’s just in my nature to love you
I can’t hate you
‘Cause its not in my nature to hate you
You know, I don’t know
Maybe I’m a different type of individual

from The Notorious B.I.G. – Long Kiss Goodnight Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a very personal, honest introspection into the heart of Sean Combs. He is not, by nature, a playa hater, but rather, he fundamentally respects fellow talents in the rap industry.

Puff seems to imply by this that he did not initially want to beef with Death Row, a claim both he and Biggie made in interviews, but 2Pac consistently rejected. 2Pac believed that Biggie and Puff were so jealous of his success, they set him up for his 1994 shooting outside a New York City record studio, citing the Biggie song Who Shot Ya? as evidence of Bad Boy’s involvement.
