Over the weekend, Drake was hospitalized after fighting Puff Daddy outside of a Miami nightclub.
Social media was flooded with rumors about what caused the spat, and a story about Diddy punching Drake over a song quickly emerged as the most believable.
Now TMZ has obtained video that seems to definitively prove that Puff and Drake were feuding over a beat that they had both hoped to turn into a hit single:
That’s Diddy on stage in Miami back in June. He introduces Drake’s "0-100" by saying, "I wanna play this next beat. I gave this sh-t to this n-gga, this n-gga stole this sh-t from me, but at the end of the day, this sh-t is still hard."
Puff is clearly referring to Drake’s alleged theft of a Boy-1da beat that he turned into "0-100."
There are a number of confusing things about this clip, not the least of which is the fact that Puff plays a track by his rival during his concert, and proceeds to dance to the song as though it were his own.
Then, of course, there’s the fact that Diddy says he "gave" the track to Drake and that Drake then proceeded to steal it from him.
Perhaps someone should explain concept of giving to Mr. Daddy.
