The Verzuz concept sprung out of the idea of entertaining fans during the original lockdown of 2020. The event would eventually become highly anticipated with some of the biggest icons of music partaking in the celebration of their music.

We have seen the pioneers such as Gladys Knight and Patti Labelle face off to the unlikely match up of Gucci Mane and Jeezy. Now the idea of Dr. Dre and Diddy is ringing in the rumor mill, but it still seems quite an implausibility.

However, during a recent segment of TMZ Live, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz spoke about the plausibility of a showdown between Diddy and Dr. Dre, which might actually be in the works. Swizz Beatz believes it is possible.

This revelation occurred after Harvey Levin asked Timbaland if Diddy and Jay-Z was a possibility. The answer was an emphatic “slim chance” of that happening, but the response to a Dr. Dre battle was a bit different.

“Now that’s something different,” said Swizz, seemingly more hopeful that they could get both heavy hitters on the show. “Everybody has these magical wishes that they want [to see on Verzuz] but the universe has been bringing these magical wishes so I can’t even say what’s not gonna happen ’cause a lot of the Verzuz, just like the last one we’ve seen, everybody said that it couldn’t happen. Right? So now, we just let the universe naturally make things happen.”

This would of course become the biggest showdown of all time on Verzuz especially with their history of the legendary east coast/ west coast rivalry from the 1990’s. “I’m not gonna say no,” added Swizz about the possibility of Dr. Dre facing off against Diddy on the Verzuz stage. “I’m never gonna say no anymore.”
