Speaking to Kid Capri on Instagram Live, Swizz Beatz seemingly announced the battle by accident but did confirm that the showdown is pending. “I wasn’t even supposed to say that, I might have just f*ckd that all up,” he told Kid Capri. He continued, ”We love them and we got patience, so whenever they’re ready, we’re ready. Because VERZUZ is not just something for the pandemic — it’s something for the culture, permanently. That’s what I want people to understand. We got so many lined up, we ain’t even start yet.”
VERZUZ has seen the likes of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, DMX and Snoop Dogg, Fabolous and Jada Kiss and more go hit-for-hit on Instagram Live and Apple Music. It’s also become a platform for artists to call out those who they believe are in the same bracket, with the likes of both DMX and Snoop Dogg challenging JAY-Z, Juicy J challenging Dr. Dre and Nas and T.I. challenging 50 Cent.
