Jermaine Dupri Says Diddy Can’t Do Verzuz Because Bad Boy Artists Can’t Perform The Songs

 Jermaine Dupri was a guest on the Rory and Mal podcast

There, he doubled-down So So Def being able to outlast Diddy and his Bad Boy roster in a Verzuz battle. When asked if the bout would happen Jermaine said, “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?” Dupri says that Diddy could bring out The Lox, however, getting Ma$e to perform and obviously not having Biggie here would pose a problem for Puff. “Puff — and anybody else that thinks about this battle — they try to downplay the Bow Wow era,” said Dupri. “When we get into 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.” JD also challenged anyone to say So So Def wasn’t a force in 2007, the same year Mariah Carey’s Emancipation of Mimi was released.
