Dr. Dre and Sean “Diddy” Combs have reunited in the studio eight years after their business-related fallout.
The duo’s reunion was marked by Diddy posting photos with Dre taken in a recording studio tp Instagram on Tuesday.
In the first picture, the duo lock hands as Diddy speaks into a smiling Dre’s ear.
The second shows the pair vibing to their collaboration, while the third and fourth pictures show the rapper Diddy intently listening to the “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” mastermind.
In the fifth photo Diddy is photographed making magic in a recording booth.
Diddy captioned the photos “I remember the first time I heard @DrDre’s production. It gave me clear direction on the level of producer that I wanted to be.”
“Last night, I got the chance to work with this man and to see his genius as he coached me through vocals. He reminded me of myself, but with a different style and way more focused. I gotta step my focus up, LOL!” he wrote.
Kanye West and Snoop Dogg are also in some of the recording studio photos with the duo.
Diddy and Dr. Dre were estranged after Tyrese Gibson posted a drunken video to Facebook in 2014 with Dre beside him, prematurely sharing that Apple was about to buy Dre’s Beats brand for $3.2 billion before the deal was finalised.
Diddy who saw the clip spilled to Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine, causing Apple CEO Tim Cook to renegotiate the headphones deal to $3 billion — shorting Dre on $200 million.
