Bun B advocates for UGK to face-off against 8Ball & MJG in a Verzuz battle
Bun B asked for his fans help.
Bun B is advocating for UGK to be the next contender in a Verzuz battle against 8Ball & MJG.
The “Get Throwed” spitter took to Instagram to call on his fans to make the battle happen. “@therealswizzz and @timbaland are open to having us on @verzuztv y’all,” he wrote. “They just wanna see that the people want it. So tag them in my comments. Then repost the pic by @willo_hdesign to your page and story and tag them again. Let’s get the word out!”
UGK has many hits under their belt with songs like “Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You),” “Diamonds & Wood” and “Front, Back & Side to Side.” Let’s not forget their classic collaborations for T.I.’s “Front Back” and JAY-Z’s “Big Pimpin.”
8Ball & MJG have a few hits of their own as well. The Memphis natives have singles such as “You Don’t Want Drama,” “Space Age Pimpin’” and “Don’t Make” in their catalogue.
If the battle does take place, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are doubling down on preventing the sound issues from happening again. Following the technical problems during Jagged Edge and 112’s battle, the Verzuz founders are enforcing a rule that the artists have to use the equipment that they’re being sent.
“Roland [Corporation] actually created a special system that they made for Verzuz for IG,” Swizz explained. “And it works. Like you look at Ludacris’ sound, it works. You can tell who’s using the setup and who’s not using the setup. It’s only a couple plugs that’s gon’ change ya life. 112 was using it. I don’t think Jagged Edge was using it.”
“We’re gonna make that an enforceable rule,” he continued. “You cannot do Verzuz unless you use the technology that we’re sending you because we’re sending it to you for a reason.”
