So almost a year after Swizz beats and Timbaland decided to host an impromptu Instagram music producer battle, Verzuz have grown into the new premium concert hosting platform, reinvigorating the love of music with classic songs and albums of yesterday by recording artists going head to head.
” One night, almost a year ago he came back in the house and woke me up and said, “Babe, I just got off of IG battling Timbaland it was CRAZY!!!! The WiFi was bad so I had to drive up the block. I just did it from the car” I looked at him like what are u talking about?? And turned over to go back to sleep. THAT was the night Verzus was born and since then I’ve watched him become totally immersed in bringing all of us, as lovers of music, something amazing to look forward to during a dark time. – said Alicia Keys
So to continue on the success of VERZUZ, the platform has officially merged with Triller and will give all 43 artists who believed in the vision when it started, shares in the Verzuz company, and dont worry music fans, it will still all be FREE!
So after watching Verzuz D’Angelo & Friends concert at the Apollo, Swizzy and Timbaland announced on IG Live that the next Verzuz battle will be Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. Now if this isn’t a golden opportunity to feast your ears to icons of the golden era of hip hop at ‘The battle of Shaolin’ Wu Tang Clan’s Raekwon VS Ghostface Killah.
The ‘Battle Of Shaolin’ begins Saturday, March 20th at 5pm PT/8pm ET LIVE on VerzuzTV IG or on the Triller app.
