‘Always Be My Baby’ (Mariah Carey), ‘We Belong Together’ (Mariah Carey), ‘Nice & Slow’ (Usher), ‘First Night’ (Monica), and ‘U Got It Bad’ (Usher) are just a few of the many smash hit singles that line Jermaine Dupri’s production credits.
One of the most celebrated producers of the last 30 years, when not laying down beats for the likes of Carey, Usher, Janet Jackson, Monica, TLC, Alicia Keys, Xscape, and many others over his career Dupri was found listed as a songwriter on some of Urban music’s most memorable numbers.
For those reasons and more, music lovers were puzzled when Diddy – after sending fans into a frenzy with indication he wanted to battle Dr. Dre on the #VERZUZ platform – followed by saying Dupri couldn’t hang with him because he ‘ain’t got enough hits.’

As Hip Hop heads had their eyes glued to Triller Tuesday night (September 14) for the highly anticipated Ja Rule vs. Fat Joe battle, Diddy hopped in the comments to casually mention he wanted a hit-for-hit duel with Dr. Dre (as seen above in a screen capture by our friends at TSR).
Later, JD entered the chat via Twitter to suggest he was willing to face off with Diddy.

Although it’s possible Diddy meant ‘enough hits’ as a performer, because the Bad Boy mogul didn’t make the distinction his comments didn’t go over well with some Twitter users.
As of time reported, JD hasn’t hit back at the ‘enough hits’ jab.
