The fact that Sean "Diddy" Combs is a skilled businessman and entrepreneur can't be denied.

But the rapper's musical abilities? Famed producer Quincy Jones questioned them at Spotify's launch Wednesday of a new app showcasing artist-made playlists, saying Diddy "couldn't recognize a B-flat if it hit him."

"P. Diddy has a doctorate in marketing," he added, as excerpted by XXL Mag. "He's got clothes companies and Ciroc Vodka."

But Jones is no hater…

He cleared up the matter on his Facebook page, writing: "No controversy, no diss. I have nothing but love and respect for Diddy and all that he has achieved as an artist and an executive. Always have and always will."

Diddy didn't directly respond to Quincy, but he didn't seem to have let the initial jab get him down.

"Great day ahead!" he tweeted Thursday morning. "To the Top people!"
