Rick Ross, 2 Chainz Square Off in Opulent "High Rollers" Verzuz
Rick Ross and 2 Chainz dropped new singles right after the show.
Thursday night was a star-studded occasion on social media as Rick Ross and 2 Chainz squared off in the latest Verzuz battle. With the depth of their catalog and their own chemistry, the battle was a good time all around. Stream the full battle on Verzuz' Instagram page.
Both rappers came out the gate on fire. Rick Ross started the match with his chart topping hit "Blowin Money Fast," to which 2 Chainz responded with his two-times platinum single, "No Lie." After Ross dropped his breakout single "Hustlin," 2 Chainz countered with "I'm Different." Ross responded with his feature on Lil Wayne's 2011 single "John."
The battle featured so many back-to-back hits it was hard to pick an obvious winner. When Ross dropped hits like "Diced Pineapples," MC Hammer," "Aston Martin Music," and "Santorini Greece," 2 Chainz countered with "Duffle Bag Boy," "I Luv Dem Strippers," "Super Freak," and "Bandz A Make Her Dance."
As expected, the battle had its share of funny moments. At one point, Ross called a (masked) woman out to massage him for his verse on Kanye West's "Devil in a Blue Dress." 2 Chainz also brought out masked strippers in honor of "Bands A Make Her Dance."
As always, there was at least one surprise in store for the viewers. After closing out the battle on a tear that featured "Tears of Joy," "Stay Scheming," "Pop That," "I'm On One," and "I'm Not A Star," Rick Ross shocked viewers by dropping a previously-unreleased verse on Kanye West's "Famous."
