The Verzuz Instagram Live battle platform is heating up. After the RZA took on DJ Premier and Teddy Riley and Babyface (kinda, sorta) executed attempt No. 2 at their highly anticipated battle, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland have their eyes set on Dr. Dre and Diddy.
While speaking to Timbo on Monday night (April 20), Swizz told his 3 million Instagram followers it was time for the N.W.A mastermind and Bad Boy Records founder to step into the ring — only this one wouldn’t be free.
“Dr. Dre, we need him to know that we need him and P. Diddy,” Swizz said. We need Dr. Dre versus P. Diddy Pay-per-view for the culture. Let’s bring the two kings in and give back to the people. This is a give back to the people. Dr. Dre, P. Diddy, we are calling you to give back to the people. Pay-per-view [or] UFC-style with Verzuz.”
He added he wanted to dub it “a celebration, not a battle.”
