The next verzuz battle will be Bounty Killer versus Beenie Man!
Rapper and super-producer Swizz Beatz announced it via Instagram today (May 20). It’s the Jamaican edition and it’s set to take place on Saturday on Instagram Live!
In a recent Instagram live Swizz Beatz discussed the possibility of a Jamaican edition of the Verzuz battle, but it wasn’t known who will do battle, until now.
The last installment of a friendly competition concept curated by super producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland to keep music lovers engaged from home in the wake of COVID-19 featured Nelly going head-to-head against ATL’s Ludacris.
Thunderstorms in the area that impeded Nelly internet service nearly resulted in a reschedule, but both artists seemed committed to seeing the experience through.
Ludacris was patient and Nelly was determined – and for three hours they took hip-hop fans through their respective catalogs. Fans were engaged with the battle for three hours – and at the height of viewership came close to cresting at a half-million.
