Jeezy and T.I. set to battle in Verzuz Season 2 opener

Season 2 of Verzuz is set to begin on November 19

The second season of Verzuz is set to begin on November 19 at 5pm PT/8pm ET and viewers are invited to watch the epic battle between Atlanta rappers, T.I. and Jeezy, on Instagram or in HD on Apple Music.

T.I. has been campaigning for a spot on Verzuz ever since the Timbaland and Swizz Beatz-created series first began.

After T.I. respectfully declined to go head-to-head with Busta Rhymes, reasoning that the generation gap between him and the New York based artist might be too much, Tip put out a call to Jeezy.

“Everybody keep saying me and Young [Jeezy]. But if Young wanted this smoke, he’d say it. If y’all want it, tell him to say it,” T.I. said on Instagram Live.

Jeezy responded to the “Whatever You Like” rapper by posting a cryptic video message on Instagram in which he didn’t call T.I. by his name, but indirectly let him know he was ready to battle.

“Say, bruh. You done been around the whole world on your campaign. Now you back here,” Jeezy said. “I don’t know what you avoiding me for.” Jeezy then challenged T.I. to “put a date on it.”

Confirming fan’s speculations, T.I. popped up in Jeezy’s comments, writing, “Hmmm. Could this long time constituent of mine be referring to me???”

Later in his own Instagram post, T.I. tagged Jeezy, Swizz and Timbaland, letting them know he’s ready to schedule the face-off ASAP.

Though excited about the upcoming Verzuz battle, fans of both artists aren’t thrilled that the long-awaited match-up is so far off in the future, but admit that greatness is worth waiting for.
