Diddy names JAY-Z's '4:44' album of the year

"If you don't listen to it, you're doing yourself a disservice."

Before news surfaced that JAY-Z's 4:44 had maintained its No. 1 spot on the Billboard albums chart for the second week in a row, his fellow Forbes-recognized mogul Diddy gave it high praises, as well.

Speaking on Apple Music's OVO SOUND Radio on Saturday (July 22), Diddy applauded the album's inspirational message, saying:

"This JAY-Z album is JAY-Z's best album. As an artist, you have a responsibility to grow. JAY-Z has inspired me, I inspire people, we all inspire each other. This album is not just an album. '4:44' is necessary. It's not just an album. It's a change of thinking. It's a change in the way we think. We gotta support our own brand. We gotta support each other....It ain't no old, it ain't no new. Everybody's fly. Y'all ni--as wearing a dress is fly. Ni--as over there wearing jewelry and Dapper Dan, trying to make that shit come back, you guys are fly. Everybody's fly in their own way. This ni--a JAY-Z is great and that '4:44' album is great. If you don't listen to it, you're doing yourself a disservice. Take that, take that, take that. JAY-Z's '4:44' album [is] to me, his best album and the album of the year."

Diddy himself just dropped his Notorious B.I.G. and Rick Ross-assisted "Watcha Gon' Do?

What's better than one billionaire? Two.
