Kanye channeled his inner Diddy with the dance moves, and it looks like the Bad Boy Records CEO was paying attention to the routine. Footage of Diddy welcoming Pusha T and his manager Steven Victor to his home was posted on Instagram by Victor on Friday (February 11), while they were chatting, Puff gave Ye’s dance moves his stamp of approval.
“I loved Kanye’s dance. I fucking loved it, n-gga!” Diddy said before imitating some of the moves, much to Pusha’s delight. “You gotta fucking try! You gotta be courageous to dance!”

Longtime rap fans wwill know Kanye West’s dance moves in the “Diet Coke” video are similar to Diddy’s own movements in the visual for the 1994 Craig Mack classic “Flava In Ya Ear (Remix).” That video was one of the first times Diddy introduced his “Diddy Bop” to the world.
Aside from praising Pusha T and Kanye West‘s new video, Diddy is cooking up something of his own. In July 2021, Puff announced that his new album, Off The Grid Vol. 1, would be arriving in September, marking the start of his “Love” era.
That release date came and went without an album, until Diddy rekindled anticipation for the project by linking with longtime TDE engineer MixedByAli in the studio last month. According to Ali’s caption, the two were working on Off The Grid. Vol 1.
“A historical moment having @diddy pull up to the legendary Can-Am Studios, now @nonamestudios, not to mentioned this classic R&B album that I’m grateful to be a part of #OffTheGrid #MixedByAli #NoName @sd__engineears,” MixedByAli wrote.
