Swizz Beatz has revealed why Dr. Dre pulled out of a highly anticipated VERZUZ battle. During a recent radio interview, Swizz said that Dre pulled out due to the audio issues that Teddy Riley and Babyface had during their infamous battle.
Swizz explained, “When Dr. Dre wasn’t feeling the sound from Teddy Riley and Babyface, that hurt our heart. I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ Dr. Dre was at the Teddy Riley one. But he was supposed to come at the end and announce that he was gon’ do Verzuz that night.”
Swizz continued, “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 just like, ‘Oh, we just lost Dre’ … That one felt pretty crazy.”
