Verzuz TV is a music entertainment platform where legendary musicians perform their greatest catalog of music against one another on a live broadcast streamed via Instagram and Apple Music. Verzuz TV was started in March of 2020 by Timbaland and Swizz Beats. Two highly respected music producers in which their initial idea for Verzuz was to bring peace, joy, and happiness to the world and embrace the music culture. This platform also gives the artist an opportunity to have a monumental moment to showcase themselves, embracing our culture with such phenomenal records from a competitive standpoint.

We have watched legendary artist from different generations and genres battle one another. We’ve witness Verzuz battles between Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight, E-40 and Too Short, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, Monica and Brandy, Teddy Riley and Babyface, Jadakiss and Fabolous, and Jeezy and Gucci Mane the list continues.

Probably one of the most anticipated Verzuz battle would be Jeezy and Gucci Mane. Jeezy from West Atlanta up against Gucci who is from East Atlanta. Two legendary rap stars who both make the same genre of music Trap Music. These two earlier in their career’s had turmoil with one another. During a time in the heat of the moment when some younger rap stars would lose their lives for clashing heads with their peers. Gucci and Jeezy would resolve their differences during verzuz to let the younger generation of Hip-Hop know that it is okay to let go of the past.

Verzuz has been a great platform for artists to get exposure and a time for their fans to get a chance see them perform when concerts are limited due to the pandemic.
