Raekwon has praised P Diddy and Drake for their contributions to hip-hop.

The Wu-Tang Clan member has compared Diddy to Donald Trump and hailed Drake as the male version of Lauryn Hill.

He told Vibe: "Puff is the Donald Trump of rap. You have to respect his business antics. A lot of people don't realise that Puffy was doing this s**t before a lot of us even came into the game.

"And he still has the energy to know great music when he hears it. I look at him as a younger Russell Simmons. He put a lot into hip-hop."

As for the Young Money star, he added: "This kid Drake is a phenomenon. He's like a young pharaoh with a great talent. I call him the male version of Lauryn Hill. He can go this way or that way. I heard him mentioning the Wu in one of his new songs. So I know he understands the music."
