Tip “T.I.” Harris has made it clear he wants to face 50 Cent in a Verzuz hits-for-hits battle. While a potential Fiddy faceoff does not look to be happening anytime soon, T.I. has faced challenges from other rap stars.
Busta Rhymes recently called out T.I. to step into the ring against him for Verzuz. The Atlanta-raised rhymer declined that matchup by stating, “Busta’s one of the most phenomenal talents of our time… I salute and respect Busta a whole lot. I just think the generational gap might be a little too much.”
Well, fellow Atlanta native Jeezy has now stepped up as a possible challenger for Tip. The Snowman said on Instagram, “I don’t know what you’re avoiding me for. I’ll tell you what though since it means that much to you, put a date on it. I ain’t gonna meet you there, I’m gonna beat you there. Straight up. Big Snow.”
It did not take long for T.I. to respond to his “G’ S###” collaborator. He hopped in Jeezy’s Instagram comment section to post, “Hmmm could this long time constituent of mine be referring to me??? @jeezy.” Verzuz curators Swizz Beatz and Timbaland have yet to announce the next musical bouts.
