Swizz Beatz reveals reason why Dr. Dre backed out from VERZUZ last minute

Late in 2020, talk of Dr. Dre battling P. Diddy really started heating up and Swizz Beatz and Timbaland seemed open to the possibility that it could happen. Today during The Breakfast Club interview, Swizz Beatz has revealed that Dr. Dre was actually set to announce his participation in a VERZUZ battle, but backed out last minute:

“When Dr. Dre was not feeling the sound from Teddy Riley and Babyface, that hurt our heart. Oh my God… He was supposed to come at the end and announce that he was gon’ do VERZUZ that night… He got on the phone, he was like ‘man, I can’t be a part of nothing that sound like that, my legacy is quality’. I was like ‘oh, we just lost Dre’… that one felt pretty crazy.”
