JA RULE & FAT JOE ARE NEXT UP FOR VERZUZ
The next round of Verzuz has been set! In two weeks, two of New York’s most renowned MC’s will go head-to-head for the culture. Ja Rule and Fat Joe will be LIVE from New York on Tuesday, September 14th. We’ve been treated to some memorable battles so far. Like the unforgettable Lox vs. Dipset battle that left Madison Square Garden looking more like a crime scene when it was all said and done.
TALE OF THE TAPE
AllHipHop.com reports that after the announcement the Terror Squad and Murder Inc. vets expressed interest in doing a Verzuz. Just not against each other! Ironically, both MC’s wanted 50 Cent as their competition as Fat Joe expressed on The Morning Hustle last year. “I think the guys in the trap, I think the girls, I think everybody [would] be like, ‘Oh wow, we got a Verzuz 50 Cent [with] Fat Joe? Oh, I’m tuning into that joint.’… That’ll be the ideal one.”
Ja also voiced his reasons for wanting to participate in a Verzuz to HipHopDX stating that while “it would make the most sense” to battle 50 Cent that it would be highly unlikely. “Listen, man. Everybody don’t want the smoke. Everybody don’t want this smoke. I got heat. Let me tell you something, when I do my shows, I can rock. I’m telling you it’s like an hour of straight hit records. No filler. All crab meat, n***a. … All meat in that m############ crab cake, n***a.”
“Ja Rule is sayin’ he loves Hip Hop first and foremost and he wants to do this for the culture. C’mon, you guys want the smoke for real.”Fat Joe on The Fat Joe Show
But if I did one, if I did do a Verzuz, I would want my Verzuz to be fun. That’s what Verzuz is supposed to be about—the celebration of music and the art, and the artistry.”Ja Rule on his take on doing a Verzuz
Tickets for the event will go on sale on September 7th. The live stream of the event will take place on the Verzuz Instagram Page as well on Triller and Fite TV apps. It will be an event you WON’T want to miss!!!
