Diddy’s “dreams at last [came] true” this week when he hit the recording studio with Dr. Dre.
The ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ hitmaker has always admired the producer and was delighted to witness his ‘genius’ first-hand when they worked together on Monday (29.08.22) during sessions for an upcoming Snoop album Dogg.
Sharing a series of photos of himself and Dre in the studio, Diddy wrote on Instagram on Tuesday (30.08.22): “One of my biggest dreams finally came true. I remember the first time I heard the @DrDre’s production gave me clear direction on the level of producer I wanted to be.
“Last night I had the opportunity to work with this man and see his genius as he coached me through the voice. He reminded me of myself, but in a different and much more focused style. I have to concentrate more! lol But it was a great experience and I thank God.”
Diddy expressed his hope that fans can have similarly positive experiences with their own heroes.
He added: “I hope one day you have the same experience with someone you’ve always looked up to as a hero.”
The 52-year-old star’s team later clarified that the pair had been working with Snoop.
In an email sent to HipHopDX, Diddy’s rep said, “The two music moguls teamed up to collaborate on Dr. Dre’s highly anticipated upcoming album with Snoop Dogg, who was also in attendance.
“Producing with Dr. Dre has been a long time dream for Mr. Combs and the night was made even more special as he coached him through vocals.”
Snoop confirmed earlier this month that he was working with Dre on a new album, but didn’t want to give away too many details.
He teased, “We’re doing a little bit. I don’t want to talk too much about it, but we’re back together. We’ve been working on a record for 30 years and we’re doing something. , we’re working on something.”
