Swizz Beatz and Timbaland have kept everyone entertained as people are stuck in their homes during COVID-19. The many Instagram Live battles have caught the eyes of hundreds of thousands of viewers. Mobb Deep’s Havoc may be the next person up to display his hits in the upcoming round of “Verzuz.”
In an interview with HipHopDX, Havoc says he told Swizz that he doesn’t mind going head-to-head with anyone.
“I just hit up Swizz, I sent him my list,” the Hidden Files rapper said. “Now I said, ‘Swizz, I’ll battle anybody you put me against.’ He said, ‘I bet.’ I said, ‘I’ll be waiting,’ and he said, ‘I’m going to do it ASAP.’ So look for that.”
The Queens MC was then asked if he would challenge Alchemist, RZA or even newer producers like Metro Boomin.
“Yeah. Yeah!” he said. “You could put me up against anybody and I’m not going to get destroyed. I believe that in my heart. I could definitely hang in there with the best of them. And yeah, I was going to say [RZA] but I didn’t want to get beside myself, but I would take him on. I’m willing to lose just because.”
The latest “Verzuz” battle between Babyface and Teddy Riley literally shut Instagram down. The battle had almost half a million viewers at one time. Riley kicked things off with SWV’s “Right Here” while Babyface chose to start with Toni Braxton’s “Love Shoulda Brought You Home.”
Many viewers had to catch the show on their computers. Instagram tweeted, “We love how much you’re all enjoying the #TeddyRileyvBabyface Live on Instagram! We’re experiencing some technical difficulties on mobile apps but we’re working on it. In the meantime, live is available on desktop!” The battle ended after the two R&B legends weren’t able to rejoin each other’s Live.
Who do you want to see Havoc go against?
