Jay-Z’s name has been thrown around Verzuz battle conversations ever since its inception, which Jay recently commented on while talking with Alicia Keys and Rob Markman on Twitter Spaces.
Jay stated, “No one can stand on that stage with me. It’s not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me. You got to stand in front of the ‘Grammy Family Freestyle’ live? No one has ever even seen me perform that, you got to stand in front of that? That ain’t never going to happen.”
Lil Jon then chimed in on social media, stating that “BUSTA WILL SMOKE [smoke emoji] JAY Z [popcorn emoji].”
Busta Rhymes previously weighed in on who he’d like to face off with in a Verzuz battle, and Jay-Z was on his list.
Busta told Complex, “I would love to spar against anybody. As long as their catalog is a powerful catalog because I don’t want to do a corny Verzuz. I don’t wanna do no Verzuz with anybody whose catalog isn’t crazy. And I would love to do a Verzuz with somebody that I’m a fan of because I’m only trying to compete with somebody that brings the best out of me.”
He added, “I would love to do a Verzuz with Eminem, I would love to do a Verzuz with Lil Wayne. I would love to do a Verzuz with Hov.”
