Last year during lockdown a hit for hit musical battle called Verzuz was created by musical titans Timbaland and Swizz Beats. Originally starting off on IG live, Verzuz would move to Apple last Summer, to full scale concerts on Triller. Verzuz has given us moments like DMX vs Snoop Dogg, Jeezy vs Gucci Mane, Bow Wow vs Soulja Boy, and many more great musical battles. If you don’t know the Verzuz concept each artist(s) plays 20 of their records in a back and forth battle of the hits. The next slated match up is a group duel between iconic Hip-Hop groups The Lox and Dipset on August 3rd at MSG. We have gotten some marquee matches but everybody has been calling for Drake to get in the ring with someone but who has the ability to go blow for blow with the boy?
If you have been watching these events then you know that any artist with a Drake feature plays that song. Rick Ross vs 2 Chainz was really a contest to see who had more Drake records to play. Even Keith Sweat needed Drake’s assistance in his match against Bobby Brown. Drake has had the game in a chokehold for 10 straight years and has shown no signs pf slowing down. The man has hits on hits on hits. Look at the body of work he has to pull from So Far Gone, Thank Me Later, Take Care, NWTS, IYRTITL, Scorpion, not to mention the loosies and features. I don’t think there is any artist dead or alive that can keep up with Drake in a Verzuz. The only way Drake loses in a Verzuz is if they pull out a Michael Jackson hologram, but then Drake can play his MJ feature from Scorpion and still shut Mike Jack down, good luck!
