Homebound artists find new ways to stay involved with their fans and the music scene. One of the most striking recent developments is Verzuz series created by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, where hip-hop icons and legends face each other in hit battles.

The series has already presented T-Pain vs. Lil Jon, Babyface vs. Teddy Riley, and RZA vs. DJ Premier. Contemplating who could be next, Swizz Beatz suggested the idea of a battle between Sean “Diddy” Combs and Dr. Dre, describing the dream match as a “UFC-style pay-per-view” event.

Dr. Dre did not show any enthusiasm but recently we learn that Diddy is up and is already in discussions with his opponent. He announced this during his live chat with Fat Joe:

We’re definitely talking about it. You heard it here. You heard it here on the show. Breaking news, Joe-prah!

Fat Joe posted a video of this call with a caption:
