Juicy J is looking to jump on the VERZUZ bandwagon and he’s already scoped out his opponent: Dr. Dre.

Taking to Twitter to start the fire, J wrote, “I wanna do a Verzus battle wit Dr Dre no cappuccino.” He was met with both support and criticism; fans noted that their extensive discoveries have made major impacts on hip-hop, while some argued that they aren’t exactly on the same level.

To be fair, both artists have impressive catalogs that could match up to each other. They’ve got Three 6 Mafia and N.W.A., award-winning hits like “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” and “Let Me Ride” and production credits with some of the biggest titles in the game such as Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Hot Girl Summer” and Eminem‘s Music to Be Murdered By.

VERZUZ has seen impressive match-ups since its inception, including Fabolous v. Jadakiss, Alicia Keys v. John Legend, Nelly v. Ludacris and Erykah Badu v. Jill Scott. However, we’ll have to wait and see if Dre will accept the challenge.

In case you missed it, Injury Reserve’s Steppa J. Groggs has died at 32.
