A second season of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s popular Verzuz series is on the way, and it looks like it’s going to feature two southern legends going toe to toe.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday (October 21), Jeezy accepted a Verzuz challenge without naming who he was speaking to.
“Say bruh, you done been around the whole world on your campaign, you know?” Jeezy started off. “Now you back here. I don’t know what you avoiding me for. I’ll tell you what, though – since it mean that much to you, put a date on it! I ain’t gon’ meet you there, I’ma beat you there. Straight up. Big Snow!”
Tip popped up in the comments, inquiring whether the post was meant for him.
“Hmmmm,” he wrote with a thinking emoji. “Could this longtime constituent of mine be referring to me??? @jeezy”
He then responded in a lengthy Instagram video and accepted the challenge – despite Busta Rhymes also calling him out earlier that same day and turning it down.
Tip has been campaigning to go up against someone on the platform for some time now, and previously addressed the idea of battling Jeezy on an Instagram Live.
“Man to be honest with you bruh, I feel like I picked who I thought was my best shot,” he told his viewers. “And everybody keep saying me and Young, me and Young, me and Young. Incredible amount of respect for Young and his catalog. That’s a personal partner of mine. But if Young wanted this smoke, he’d say it. I know Young. If Young wanted this smoke, if Young wanted this action, he’d say it! So until Young say something, it’s talk!”
Tip has also called out 50 Cent to meet him in the Verzuz ring, but the G-Unit rapper wasn’t interested.
