Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy completely understands and salutes Drake for staying mum on his headline-generating G.O.O.D. Music feud. The hip-hop icon has shared his take on the 6 God going silent on rap rival Pusha-T.

In a new interview, Puff Daddy explained how he found himself in Drake’s shoes over 20 years ago when late rap mogul 2Pac went at him and his camp on the “Hit ‘Em Up” diss song.

“They asked me a question today about Drake not responding and I had to tell them I respected it. Like when we had got hit with ‘Hit ‘Em Up,’ I had to make the call to Biggie and said, ‘We not gonna respond. Somebody’s gonna get hurt if we respond.’ I don’t know what’s gonna happen with it but you know I could understand that perspective because 2Pac hit us with ‘Hit ‘Em Up’ and that joint was cold. I was listening to that and we were actually like, throwing people’s turntables. A deejay would play, we would just end the party and we would take your turntables if you played ‘Hit ‘Em Up.’ You know what I’m saying? That’s how cold [it was]. That thing hurt to this day. And then when JAY-Z, I know JAY-Z and Nas, they’re friends but that still, if you hear ‘Ether’ coming out the joint, I still feel a way. I never felt a way about ‘Hit ‘Em Up,’ I never felt a way with it because I really laughed at it the way I was portrayed in the video. I saw the fun in it but you know, I’m not gonna play it at my birthday party.” (Real 92.3)

This week, a pic surfaced of Drake coming out to attend a private birthday celebration.

In a new interview, Rap-A-Lot Records boss J Prince revealed Drake’s shelved Pusha-T diss record would have destroyed Kanye West‘s career.

The Rap-A-Lot Records CEO tells us Drake was, in fact, ready to respond to Pusha’s “The Story of Adidon” before J Prince stepped in and told him to stand down. According to Prince, what Drake had “cocked and loaded” would’ve “ended” Kanye, and caused a lot of pain. He insists they’re not in the business of destroying families … which is why he told Drizzy to stand down. (TMZ)
