While both MCs have been spitting their truth and at times taking shots at one another, Diddy took the time to sing both of their praises while enjoying himself -- and their music -- on a boat and sharing what this moment means to the hip-hop genre as a whole.
"I had a chance to listen to both of these albums and first of all, I just wanna say, yo, you guys are true kings of creativity," Diddy said in an Instagram video that DJ Akademiks posted on Monday (Sept. 6). "Both of you guys are so special and so necessary. ... Thank y’all for the inspiration, you know? But I wanna make sure what hip-hop knows is ... that’s the reach and the power that we have. And I really wanna take my hat off to these brothers for both sharing their truths."
