SNOOP DOGG Challenges JAY-Z To Online Rap Battle
Snoop Dogg wants to go up against JAY-Z in the Verzuz series—the must-watch online rap battle created and launched by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz in March.
Snoop made the challenge during an Instagram live session with fellow rapper Fat Joe. "Biggie passed away, then Nas had it for a minute and then JAY-Z took it and ran with it for a numerous amount of years. Then 50 Cent came and ran with it for his numerous amount of years," he said.
"This is me looking at it from the outside—looking at New York rap. So for me, it would be Snoop vs. JAY-Z because he had been the 'King of New York' around the same time I've been the 'King of the West'."
The Verzuz series gained traction especially after the battle between neo-soul queens Jill Scott and Erykah Badu which attracted about 700,000 viewers on May 9. Next in the lineup are Nelly and Ludacris who are scheduled to face off this Saturday, May 16.
