An enthralling (and glitch-free) showing from the dancehall rivals, the latest live-streamed bout garnered nearly half a million viewers, including drop-ins from Rihanna, Diddy, and Verzuz co-organizer, Swizz Beatz. It even featured a play-by-play from Jamaican Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, on Twitter. Last night’s showdown followed a match between Ludacris and Nelly, whose “battle” was riddled with technical difficulties for the first half-hour before a clear signal finally came through and carried the early aughts rap stars across the finish line.
