Verzuz Battle & Yung Joc On Diddy’s Advantage Over Jermaine Dupri

March 21, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Yung Joc, the Atlanta-bred rapper with ties to both Jermaine Dupri and Diddy, has weighed in on the potential Verzuz battle between the two Hip Hop music moguls.

According to Hip Hop DX, despite his connections to both, Yung Joc gave the edge to Diddy, who he believes maintained a more prominent role as the face of Bad Boy while JD focused on developing his artists to let them shine independently.

During a recent appearance on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion, Joc assessed the skillsets and catalogs of both Hip Hop heavyweights.

“I always felt like Diddy understood like how to go to the next level of what he was doing,” Joc said. “JD did too, but JD again was doing so many other things that he didn’t focus on his artistry as much as Diddy did.

Diddy kinda stands next to what’s hot… As he makes it hotter or I’ma tell you what Diddy does, he will acknowledge what’s hot and his acknowledgment brings awareness to what’s hot and he blows it up.

He continued: “So he understands marketing and that’s the difference that he got over JD.”

“As time went on, [JD] focused on his strengths as a producer and a writer more than as an artist or the flagship artist of his brand,” he added. “No matter who [Diddy] had, he’s branded as the flagship of Bad Boy. JD is So So Def, but the other artists were bigger than JD.”

On the The Goats And Underdogs podcast, Durpri stated, “We going into this Verzuz, me and Puff, I’m the underdog; a dangerous underdog too.” “And I say danger because people don’t really know my records.

“We know all Puff’s songs, he don’t have no hidden records that I’m like, oh, I didn’t know he did. I got a bunch of records that he don’t even really be thinking about.”

Although an official date hasn’t been announced, Jermaine Dupri maintains the highly anticipated Verzuz battle will take place in 2023.
