Not everyone agrees though.
Debates pitting artists against one another is very common on social media, and even moreso with Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s Verzuz battle series currently happening. Some artists themselves have even joined in; earlier this week French Montana declared that he could go “neck for neck” against Kendrick Lamar, a statement that a nunber of rap fans and even fellow rappers (looking at you, Young Thug) disagreed with.
On April 22, Facebook user Jadamion Gibbs shared the following post: “Hit for hit Lauryn Hill vs Erykah Badu 🤔.”
The post has received over 140 comments, with some people caping for Badu while others are in Hill’s corner.
The post even made its way Twitter, where the debate continued.

Badu herself even participated in the discussion, and named Hill the winner, writing on Twitter: “I’ll be pulverized.”

Debates centered around Badu and Hill have been prevalent on the internet for years. Seriously, years. It’s very, very unlikely that the next Verzuz series would feature the two artists. Badu has been busy with her Quarantine conncert series, which she completed the third edition of on Sunday (April 19).
