Kodak Black wants a ‘Verzuz’ battle against Jay-Z

Kodak Black has offered to put his back catalogue on the line in a ‘Verzuz’ battle against Jay-Z.

Since its creation by Timbaland, and Swizz Beatz in the first lockdown, the series has massively grown and has become an institution. KRS One and Big Daddy Kane recently headlined a ‘Verzuz’ event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which was also available to stream, and 2022 looks to be even brighter.

Now, Kodak Black has laid out his challenge on Twitter and told fans, “I’ll do a versus wit Jay Z. ‘IF’ he wins, he gets 15 % of my catalog! I win, he makes me Vice President of Roc Nation.”

The likelihood of ‘Hov’ accepting this wager is almost nil. Just last month, in a Twitter Space with Alicia Keys, Jay ruled out taking part and explained, “No one can stand on that stage with me. It’s not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me.”

These comments got back to Future, who responded by saying, “I Promise You, ErrBody From Atlanta Feels Like Pluto Can Win A Versus Against Hov!”

Meanwhile, Rick Ross recently also revealed his intentions to battle Jay. “JAY-Z… Yeah! Why not?” the rapper said during an appearance on The Real. “To me, that’s what makes ‘Verzuz’ special because it brings out the best in both parties.”

He continued, “That’s a possibility, but I gotta give my flowers to the big homie. I got to. My homie gave me my first opportunity signing me to Def Jam Records, and he’s one-of-one.”

Let’s see if Jay-Z will stay true to his word.
