‘Fix Your Mess’: Steve Harvey Weighs In on Teddy Riley and Babyface Music Battle

Like other social media users, comedian Steve Harvey has a few words to get off his chest about the recent Instagram battle of songs between R&B producers Teddy Riley and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.

In an April 18 battle, Riley was unprepared to go up against Babyface due to technical difficulties. The incident led to a social media dragging for Riley and Babyface, with many suggesting they postpone the battle.

Before the two legendary musicians returned for a rematch on IG Monday, April 20, fans apparently wondered what Harvey thought of the battle.

“Alright man uncle Steve weighing in on this battle thing. Now it took 15 people to get me to do this ” Harvey said in a video. “When I found out that it was Babyface and Teddy Riley I got involved ’cause that’s R&B man. That’s rhythm and blues that’s what I know, that’s all I know.”

We don’t know nothin about technical difficulties, all of us difficult in my age group. … I ain’t got no dog in this fight, I love both of them, both of them is geniuses and both of them is legends.
