Rick Ross and 2 Chainz to go head-to-head in next Verzuz battle
The battle is set to go down on Thursday, Aug. 6 at 8 pm ET.
Timbaland and Swizz Beatz have announced the newest contenders for the next Verzuz battle. Rick Ross and 2 Chainz will go head-to-head in the popular Instagram Live series on Thursday, Aug. 6 at 8 pm ET.
Ricky Rozay has a lot of hits under this belt such as “Aston Martin Music,” “Stay Schemin,” “B.M.F (Blowin’ Money Fast),” “Diced Pineapples,” “The Boss” and “Hustlin.’” His debut album Port of Miami debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. He has been nominated for five Grammy Awards.
2 Chainz has a long list of hit records as well such as “No Lie,” “Good Drank,” “It’s a Vibe,” “Birthday Song,” “Watch Out,” “I’m Different,” “I Luv Dem Strippers” and “Big Amount.”
His 2012 album Based On A T.R.U. Story debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. In 2017, he won his first Grammy award for Best Rap Performance for his contribution to Chance The Rapper’s single “No Problem.”
Back in April, 2 Chainz posted a video calling out rappers like Meek Mill and Fabolous to a Verzuz battle. “Somebody said Meek and I thought that would be dope,” 2 Chainz said. “So, let’s do it Meek. Let’s do it.”
Meek responded to the challenge in 2 Chainz’s Instagram comments. “I just wanna watchhhh lol,” Meek wrote. “Respectfully bowing out to my brother.”
This will be the second battle since Verzuz announced their partnership with Apple Music. Last week, DMX and Snoop Dogg faced off and over half a million people tuned in on Instagram as the two performed their hit songs live. The battle could also be viewed on Apple TV and Apple Music.
This matchup is sure to be one for the books. Who do you have taking the W? Check out the Instagram post from Verzuz below for more details.
