Diddy has declared Drake the loser in his feud with Pusha-T.
During a visit to “The Breakfast Club,” where he was promoting Fox’s “The Four,” the hip-hop mogul was asked about the ongoing beef between the OVO rapper and G.O.O.D Music MC.
“It’s a part of hip-hop, man,” he said (via Billboard). “If you’re trying to be the best MC, I mean, there’s gonna be battles. At this juncture in time, it’s kinda safe. When we was having battles, it was getting unsafe. I think that this is the most skillful artist that Drake has come up against and, you know, Drake likes the smoke, he loves the smoke.”
Charlamagne Tha God told Diddy that J Prince called Drake and asked for him to end the beef. Diddy responded by saying that Drake should “listen to your OGs,” but still declared him the loser. “He took the L,” said Puff, who said he was put in a similar situation during Biggie and Tupac’s rivalry.
“I was in that same position with [2Pac’s] ‘Hit ‘Em Up’ and I told Big not to respond,” he said. “So I can understand because what B.I.G had written for them, it was going to get as bad as it got.”
According to J Prince, Drake’s response would have “ended” Pusha-T’s career. “I saw it going in a place that I feel would have ended his career if Drake would have put out the song that he had on him,” Prince told “Sway in the Morning.” “And definitely would have hurt families. We not in it for that. That’s not Drake’s character. We not in business to tear our brother, fellow man down to that extent.”
