Fat Joe scared to do Verzuz against Busta Rhymes and so is everybody else. You gotta understand, sometimes you ever notice, you see boxers and they knock everybody out? People be scared to fight those boxers. Busta Rhymes is gonna out-rap, out-perform anybody that goes up in the Verzuz with him. That’s a fact!” From that statement alone, it seems that Busta Rhymes may not have a formidable opponent to take on VERZUZ. However Joe did mention and alternative stating, “You might have to be an honorary, they gotta give you the check for no reason.”
