Jermaine Dupri Says Diddy Can’t Do Verzuz With No Support From Bad Boys




Tension has been rising between Jermaine Dupri and Diddy. There have been talks about the two versing each other in a potential Verzuz battle.

Diddy Dupri beef

Dupri believes Diddy stands no chance against him in Verzuz.

On Wednesday, January 5th, Dupri made an appearance on the most recent episode of the New Rory & Mal podcast where he shut down the idea of taking on Puff. He points out that some of Puff’s greatest hits are collaborations with other artists which include artists who are either dead like The Notorious B.I.G. or who are no longer on good terms with him such as Ma$e.

Mal asked if the heavyweight bout will happen, JD stated, “I don’t think so… Because I feel like it’s a performance-based thing now and the majority of Puff’s records, who’s gonna perform? Yeah, [you can bring out] The LOX, but you can’t have nobody do Big’s verses! And I don’t know that Ma$e would come out with him no more, so I don’t think that it would happen based on that.”

As Dupri’s collaborators include Usher, Bow Wow, and Da Brat, he stands on his belief that he can outlast Puff in the Verzuz ring. Unlike JD, Puff may struggle to get support from his former Bad Boy artists.

“All my people, we rockin’! And we coming’ with a whole lot of energy!”

He continued, “Puff and anybody else that thinks about this battle, they try to downplay the Bow Wow era. When we get into the 2001, 2002, 2003 era of So So Def, I don’t know that Bad Boy was even in existence… I never seen a Bad Boy record No. 1 on 106 & Park.” He added, “The Emancipation of Mimi came out in 2007. People be forgetting about that whole little patch of records. I’m telling you, I don’t give a fuck what nobody say; Puff Daddy ain’t got nothing for 2007 — not on Bad Boy!”

Jermaine Dupri challenged Diddy to a Verzuz battle back in September.

While Diddy turned down his offer, stating, “Your arms too short to box with God”, the two got into some beef on Instagram Live. Puff says “What are you going to do when Biggie’s ‘One More Chance’ drops?”

It doesn’t seem like we’re going to see the pair battle any time soon. However, FM Hip Hop will keep you updated as the internet wonders who will be taking on each other in the Verzuz’s.
