Both Snoop and X have been asking for others to join them in the Verzuz ring, most notably JAY-Z. The D-O-Double-G has made numerous attempts to be known as Hov’s challenger after some attempted to pair Snoop in a mythical Verzuz battle with 50 Cent.
“This is me looking in from the outside, looking at New York rap,” Snoop told Fat Joe in May. “So to me, it would be either Snoop versus JAY-Z because he has been the king of New York around the time I was the king of the west.”
Joe replied, “That sounds like the ultimate battle: Snoop Dogg against JAY-Z.”
In May, X was asked by N.O.R.E. during an episode of the Drink Champs podcast about who he would want for a Verzuz challenger and did not hesitate to name the Brooklyn rapper. The two have battled before in the past and X was ready for another round.
“Jay,” X said. “Who you think? There you go. That would be battle number three.”
