Jermaine Dupri will have to find another artist to go toe-to-toe with him in a Verzuz battle after Diddy says the So So Def founder is not on his level.

It all started when Dupri tweeted at Diddy during Tuesday’s night Verzuz battle between Fat Joe and Ja Rule.

“Somebody let @Diddy know I’m @thegarden right now !,” Dupri wrote, offering an invitation to Diddy for a potential battle. “And he gon need some training for me.”

A few hours later, Diddy responded, officially declining Dupri’s invitation.

“Beloved you my n**** but your arms too short to box with God!!!,” Diddy tweeted back. “You aiint got enough hits. I’ll smash you with just [Biggie] n [Mary J. Blige]. But I do have the upmost respect on you as a musical legend.”

The Bad Boy founder then noted which producer he felt was “worthy” of a Verzuz challenge.  “[Dr.] Dre the only one can get in the ring w me,” Diddy declared.

Dre has yet to respond to Diddy’s apparent Verzuz invitation.
