Diddy and Dre Collaborate On New Line Of Headphones

One of Hip-Hop’s biggest rivalries has ended in a business relationship, as Sean “Diddy” Combs and producer Dr. Dre have partnered for a new line of headphones.

Combs revealed to AllHipHop.com that a new line of high quality ‘Diddy Beats’ ear buds will be in stores next year.

“We designed some ear buds called Diddy Beats that will be out next year,” Combs revealed to AllHipHop.com. “We also have an iPod speaker base for your house coming out. That experience as a whole was good, we had a great chemistry with each other.”

At one point, Combs’ Bad Boy Records and Dr. Dre’s Death Row Records were involved in the most violent feud Hip-Hop has ever seen.

The ‘East Coast/West Coast’ “war” started around 1992 and culminated in the late 1990’s with the deaths of two of raps biggest artists.

Death Row’s biggest artist, Tupac Shakur was gunned down in Las Vegas in September of 1996.

In March of 1997, Boy Records lost The Notorious B.I.G., who was killed in a drive-by shooting after the Soul Train Awards in Los Angeles.

Combs is the latest artist to team with Dr. Dre to create customized headphones that are a part of the Beats By Dre headphone line in partnership with Interscope and manufacturer, Monster.

The Beats by Dr. Dre headphone family was created by Dre and Interscope founder Jimmy Iovine to improve the listening experience and the way listeners hear the music their favorite artists create.

The news comes on the heels of Dr. Dre’s new partnership with Hewlett-Packard to also produce the HP Envy 15 customized notebook computer, which will be released in the United States on October 22 and retail for $2, 299.

Combs and Dr. Dre are working on brand new albums.

Combs’ Bad Boy Records will release his latest effort The Last Train to Paris on Interscope Records in April of 2010.

Dr. Dre’s fabled album Detox has been pushed back again, with no official release date.
