Fat Joe and Ja rule went head to head in a Verzuz battle on Tuesday (September 14th), which sparked Jermaine Dupri to challenge Diddy to a battle next.
Diddy revealed that the only person he would be willing to do a Verzuz battle with is Dr Dre, writing:
“Beloved you my n**** but your arms too short to box with God!!! You aiint got enough hits. I’ll smash you with just biggie n Mary . But I do have the upmost respect on you as a musical legend – Dre the only one can get in the ring w me . – LOVE.”
He claimed that Jermaine doesn’t have enough hits to do a battle, but is that true? Let’s explore exactly how many records Jermaine and Diddy have produced.
How many songs has Diddy produced?
Diddy has released six studio albums and 72 singles, including 33 of his own and 39 as a featured artist. However, as well as his own tracks, he has also produced lots of songs for other artists.
In total, according to his Production Discography, he has produced around 250 different tracks.
Aside from his own albums, this includes tracks for Kanye West, Burna Boy, Mary J Blige, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men and many more.
How many songs has Jermaine produced?
Jermaine Dupri has released two solo studio albums and four compilation albums as well as a total of 42 singles, including 14 solo singles and 27 featured singles.
Like Diddy, he has also produced lots of songs for other artists. His Production Discography reveals that he has produced around 400 songs in total.
As well as his own, he has produced songs for the likes of Usher, Mariah Carey, Destiny’s Child, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Will Smith, Bow Wow, Jay Z and lots more.
So who takes the crown?
In terms of total number of songs produced, Jermaine Dupri has produced the most.
Including both their own albums and tracks produced for other artists, Jermaine has produced roughly 400, whilst Diddy has only produced around 200.
However, if you’re talking about solo tracks, which is probably what Diddy was referring to, he firmly takes the lead, with six albums and 72 singles. Whereas Jermaine only has two albums and 42 singles.
Either way, both of them have a pretty impressive production record, and despite Diddy’s claims that Jermaine “ain’t got enough hits”, would be perfect to take each other on in a Verzuz battle.
