Hitmaka wants to take on Mustard in a Verzuz battle. On Thursday (Dec. 30), a Twitter user posted a clip of the “Pardon” producer appearing on the “Joe Budden Podcast,” where he claimed he could beat Mustard in the battle series. “[Mustard] don’t want smoke, so just leave that there,” the mega-producer said at the time.

The Twitter user who shared the clip is clearly team Mustard, as they captioned the video, “This guy [Hitmaka] must be smoking dick thinking he can beat [Mustard] in a Verzuz.”

Mustard commented in agreement, writing, “He’s high man lol.”

However, Hitmaka quickly got word of the discussion and chimed in.
“No I ain’t,” he wrote in a tweet. “In the last 5 years since last time we worked I’ve sold more records & [had] more number 1’s than you. Im a light one up tho.”

“I really got records that’s triple & double platinum & one that’s almost 10 million when bro was like a sophomore in [high school],” he continued. “He play sum from 2012 I can go there.”

The two beatsmiths continued to go back and forth on the Twitter thread, with the original poster comparing their Platinum-certified hits.

In another tweet, Hitmaka directly challenged Mustard to a Verzuz battle.

“Whole game talking now u took it viral might as well gone head get ya 20 [songs Mustard],” he wrote. “I’m the underdog we both get high I know u ain’t ducking no [smoke]. We can put sum personal bread up make it interesting.”

“In reality anyone that know [Mustard] know that if I was far off his ego wouldn’t let him address it,” he added. “$100,000 he get in his car right now, cut on [the radio], my [producer] tag gone ring just like his in 2012. goodnight.”

Later in the day, the two producers continued to trade shots on their Instagram Stories. Mustard, who said Hitmaka is “higher than giraffe ass” for challenging him, also explained why he’s not interested in doing a Verzuz battle right now.

“I already declined [Verzuz battles against] Mike WiLL Made-It and Metro Boomin… I just don’t feel like I’m in the space where I wanna do a Verzuz right now because I’m still creating music. My greatest hits have yet to come,” he said. “I’m nowhere near done, I’m still working on shit right now. So, I feel like me doing a Verzuz right now is premature — against anybody.”
