Lil Wayne has been in the Verzuz ring for years, but if he were to make the show, he believes there’s only one person he’d want to challenge.
talk A rolling stone In an interview published on Friday (June 9), Weezy revealed that he’s been entertaining the idea of getting up on his own…
“I was interested in playing the mixtape Weezy with Lil Wayne,” he says, using the past tense, “I was interested.” “That would be crazy… What other artists do you think? There is no artist standing next to me on the stage, my brother. Sorry.”
Wayne’s comments echoed sentiments Birdman once shared when asked about a Lil Wayne Versus title in 2021.
“Himself, Wayne vs. Tunichi,” the Cash Money mogul said in a statement Big facts Podcast. “He’s got so much going on, he doesn’t need to touch that. Come on brother, this is Tunichi. This n-gga had 100 singles in one year. He passed Elvis Presley in one year. 100 songs on Billboard, so I don’t think an individual can top that. The work Wayne did, I wouldn’t even play with that shit.
In recent months, social media has been embroiled in a heated debate over the idea of Lil Wayne and 50 Cent Verzuz — but Swizz Beatz has spoken out about why he’s not entertaining the idea.
“I personally wouldn’t even do 50 with Wayne — two different dynamics and two different artists,” Swizz said. Baller alert.
“I’d do separate Verzuz for both, but we’ll see we have a lot lined up for Verzuz, and hopefully they’ll be involved. I can’t give away who I’ll pick against them, but we’ll just wait and see.”
Wiz Khalifa wants to get in the ring with Lil Wayne, though his reasons are more performance-based than competition.
“Yes, I think it’s interesting. Because Wayne is a dope player,” the Taylor Gang CEO said in a December interview. “Me and him banging back and forth? That thing is going to be tough! And we both smoked hella weed. I think that will be more of a concert than Verzuz.
Weezy previously spoke about Verzuz on Marcellus Wiley’s episode. More to him podcast in 2022, but not as a solo act unto himself. When asked who he thinks would make a worthy opponent for Young Money or Money in the ring, he said, “I’d say the best competition, I’d have to go with Rock-A-Fella. The guy named Jay-Z.
Next up for Verzuz is the long-awaited title battle between Diddy and Jermaine Dupree. The event will go down on September 8 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
