The rumours of the potential link up first came about from a Twitter post from Grammy-award winning producer Fredwreck, who has previously worked with Dr. Dre.
In the post, he re-shared an old photo of himself with the three artists. He captioned the photo with ‘Beats n Rhymes’ with a couple of hashtags: #shady and #aftermath.
Fans have since taken to the comments to question the purpose for the four artists’ meeting. Many are speculating that there may be a collaboration between them all.

Last week, Kendrick’s label Top Dawg Entertainment sparked rumours about the rapper’s return with a teaser video posted to their social media. The video simply said “THE WAIT IS OVAH!!!” with a picture of a loading bar. The clip ends with an ambiguous reference to Friday, 7th May, 2021.
There’s no specific reference to any of their artists in the clip, however Lamar was due to headline Glastonbury last year, and the label have previously promised forthcoming music from him sometime soon.
