Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes Want to Be the Next ‘Verzuz’ Battle

“My paperwork is in playboy.”

Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes are caping for a chance to square up in the next Verzuz battle.

In a pair of Instagram live sessions with each rapper, Verzuz organizer, Swizz Beatz, seemed to secure commitments from both Snoop and Busta. “Ain’t too many people [that] could, you know, light the dynamite stick and explode the whole fucking universe and create a climate shift other than a me and Snoop,” the Flatbush legend tells Swizz. “He just seems like he fits the bill cause he could have it the full way,” Snoop says of his prospective opponent.

Whoever enters the ring next Saturday will follow another match riddled with technical hiccups. Last night’s bout between Ludacris and Nelly struggled through shakey signals early on before eventually leveling out about 20-minutes in. Hopefully, Swizz and Timbo get some troubleshooters on hand for the next round.
