Swizz Beatz and Busta Rhymes discuss the next “Verzuz” battle.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, musicians have rallied together to find a way to keep their fans engaged with what’s happening. Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, specifically, have given the culture exactly what they’ve needed with their Verzuz series. Lining up two heavyweights on Instagram Live, fans were given the opportunity to see legendary acts play some of their biggest records and tell untold stories behind how they came to be.
Last night was a big one for the early 2000s with Ludacris and Nelly going head-to-head. It was easily one of the most anticipated battles that have been lined up. However, Swizz and Timbo are already plotting on going bigger for their next event. Swizz Beatz and Busta Rhymes spoke about who the next Verzuz battle would be and two heavyweight names were brought up — Usher and Chris Brown.
“I see a lot of Usher vs. Chris Brown. I see a lot of Usher vs. [Justin] Timberlake but for the culture…,” Swizz said.
“Listen, man. Listen. Usher and Chris Brown gotta be it, man. That’s it. You askin’ my opinion, I’m giving it to you, big bro,” Busta said. “I don’t want to see no Usher vs. Justin Timberlake. I want to see Usher vs. Chris Brown.”
After Swizz suggested Usher vs. Trey Songz, Busta said that Usher and Chris Brown’s catalog can easily go toe-to-toe since they’ve had numerous massive records.
