During his hunt for who to battle head to head for the upcoming season of Verzuz, T.I. went from wanting to go up against Jay-Z, to 50 Cent, to LL Cool J. At one point, even Busta Rhymes entered the chat suggesting himself as an opponent for the self-proclaimed king of the south. But, none of those contenders could be as perfect of a match up as this Atlanta based rapper, who has officially been approved to go hit for hit with T.I.
After fans repeatedly called out for Jeezy, formerly known as Young Jeezy, to battle T.I. for season 2 of Verzuz, T.I. took to Instagram live to let Jeezy know that he’s here for it. Jeezy of course then answered T.I.’s call, posting a video to his Instagram telling T.I. to give him a time and date so that they can get to it.
Swizz Beatz, one of the creators of Verzuz alongside Timbaland, seemingly co-signed the battle, commenting on Jeezy’s post with a bunch of eyeball emojis. And just like that, a date has formally been set for arguably Atlanta’s two biggest trap artists to go head to head on Instagram live for the world to see.
The iconic battle is going down on Thursday, November 19th at 5pm PST/8pm EST and I couldn’t think of a better match up. Get your 2000’s fits ready, cause this one is sure to bring back some old school memories.
