Could a virtual dream battle between Sean “Diddy” Combs and Dr. Dre be in the works? Diddy certainly seems to be up for the challenge.
On Friday (April 24), Fat Joe asked the hip-hop mogul on Instagram if he would be interested in battling Dr. Dre on Verzuz, the new Instagram Live series created by mega-producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz.
“We’re definitely talking about it,” Diddy responded. “You heard it here. You heard it here on the show.”
As music artists have turned to the Internet for entertainment programming during the coronavirus pandemic, Verzuz has become a popular destination, hosting big-name battles between T-Pain and Lil Jon, Babyface And Teddy Riley, and RZA and DJ Premier.
Earlier this week, Swizz Beatz floated the idea of a battle between Diddy and Dr. Dre, describing the dream match as a “UFC-style pay-per-view” event.
“We need Dr. Dre versus P. Diddy Pay-per-view for the culture,” Swizz Beatz said. “Let’s bring the two kings in and give back to the people. This is a give back to the people.”
