Diddy and Dr. Dre

Dr. Dre emerged from the studio to honor fellow mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs with the prestigious ASCAP Founders Award at ASCAP’s 24th Annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills on Friday (June 24). A buff Dre, who received the same award last year, spoke about Diddy’s influence following videotaped messages from Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Janelle Monáe, Dirty Money’s Dawn and Kalenna, and more.

“I had a chance to experience his hustle myself and believe me it’s no joke. I’ve been inspired, I’ve been motivated by this man’s hustle,” said the West Coast icon, who collaborated with Diddy on a line of Beats headphones.

Puff returned the love. “I’m extra, extra happy right now. I truly, truly appreciate this,” he told his peers. “I don’t know if ya’ll know my favorite producer in the world ’cause we in a room of producers and writers. … Dr. Dre my whole life has just been my favorite producer.”
