Diddy: Drake 'Took the L' in Pusha-T Beef

Diddy compared J. Prince's alleged Drake intervention to the advice he gave Biggie after 2Pac dropped his classic "Hit 'Em Up" diss. Still, the holder of this particular L isn't up for debate.

Diddy called in on TheBreakfast Club line Thursday morning to talk all things Four before hitting his morning run. Naturally, DJ Envy also had to sneak in a question about Pusha-T and Drake's seemingly abandoned feud. 

"It's a part of hip-hop, man," Diddy said around seven minutes into the video below. "If you're trying to be the best MC, 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."

Ultimately, Diddy said, Drake "took the L" for not responding. However, Diddy believes Drake made the right move by taking J. Prince's alleged advice. "He should listen to J. Prince because I was in that same position," he said. "I was in that same position with [2Pac's Biggie diss 'Hit 'Em Up'] and I told Big not to respond, so I can understand."

Prince, during his own Breakfast Clubinterview earlier this week, claimed that Drake had a "career-ending" Pusha and Kanye West diss "cocked and loaded." In addition to apparently convincing Drake not to release the alleged track, Prince spoke with West. "This could have been a career-ending situation where he's concerned and it also could have damaged, I think, a whole lot of livelihoods," he said.
