Sean "Diddy" Combs is one of hip-hop's most respected entrepreneurs, so when he speaks, people listen. Especially when it concerns what he calls the "album of the year."

During a hosting gig on the most recent episode of OVO Sound Radio on Apple Music, Diddy had some high praise for Jay-Z's most recent effort, 4:44. The hip-hop magnate not only anointed it the best record of 2017, but he also called it Jay's best album period.

"[...] Everybody ain't motherf**king great, but this n**** Jay-Z is great," proclaimed Diddy. "And that album 4:44 is motherf**king great." He goes on to say that, especially if you're a black male, the LP should be required listening. He even puts it on the same level as the Bible in terms of the magnitude of the lessons it teaches. 

Check out a clip from the show below.
