Two icons, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Dr. Dre, recorded Monday for the first time, and the Bad Boy Entertainment founder says it was magical.

On Tuesday night, Combs posted five Instagram photos from an unforgettable studio session.

“One of my biggest dreams finally came true,” Diddy captioned the post. “I remember the first time I heard Dr. Dre’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.”

The producer/rapper/entrepreneur, who launched the careers of numerous stars including the late Notorious B.I.G., says he was inspired to raise his game after working with the six-time Grammy winner.

“He reminded me of myself, but with a different style and way more focused” Combs continued. “I gotta step my focus up! lol But it was a great experience and I thank God for it. I hope one day ya’ll get to have the same experience with someone that you always looked up to as a hero.”

“The two music moguls came together to collaborate for Dr. Dre’s highly anticipated upcoming album with Snoop Dogg, who was also in attendance,” a member of Diddy’s staff told Hip Hop DX of the session.

In July, Combs returned to music with “Gotta Move On,” his first single since 2017’s “Watch Gon’ Do?” featuring Rick Ross and B.I.G. The song will be included on his upcoming project, which will be released on his new Love Records label. It will be Diddy’s first album since 2006’s Press Play.
