Snoop Dogg is tipping up to home plate as a possible Verzuz opposition for JAY-Z. On the heels of DMX calling out Hov for a fight, the D-O-Double-G competes he’s the suitable challenger for an Instagram Live encounter the Roc Nation manager.
During a meeting with Fat Joe, Snoop discussed why — in his mind — he’s the most effective competitors for Hov in Swizz Beatz and also Timbaland’s Verzuz fight collection.
“Nas was on the rise with [Jay], so it was never like who is the one-one,” he claimed. “And after that Biggie died and afterwards Nas had it momentarily And after that JAY-Z took it and also kept up it for a countless quantity of years. And after that 50 Cent came and also kept up it for a countless quantity of years.
“This is me looking in from the outside, looking at New York rap. So to me, it would be either Snoop versus JAY-Z because he has been the king of New York around the time I was the king of the west.”

Joe concurred with Snoop and also kept in mind Jay’s a better challenger for the West Coast tale than 50 Cent, that drifted the suggestion of battling Snoop in a meeting with Big Boy’s Neighborhood. But Joey Crack had some questions concerning Hov ever before contending in a Verzuz fight.
“That sounds like the ultimate battle: Snoop Dogg against JAY-Z,” he claimed. “Now, I don’t know if JAY-Z will do it because he’s kinda like Dr. Dre. JAY-Z, we love him, but JAY-Z [is an] introvert, quiet. But Snoop Dogg, JAY-Z … I’m not taking nothing away 50, but I just know that when you’re both GOATS down and you gotta swim ashore, it’s a long swim. Snoop Dogg been doing this [for] 25 years.”
Snoop included, “Been swimming since ’92!”
So much, Swizz and also Timbaland have actually had the ability to phase fights in between large celebrities in their Verzuz field. DJ Premier versus RZA, Babyface versus Teddy Riley and also Erykah Badu versus Jill Scott have actually all drawn in large target markets, yet Hov can take the Instagram Live face-offs to an additional degree if he’s willing to engage. This Saturday (May 16), Ludacris and also Nelly are readied to be the alongside fight versus each various other as they will certainly each show their extensive brochure of hits.
Snoop and also DMX have actually tossed their hats in the ring as prospective challengers for Hov, so the competitors exists if he desires it. But like Dr. Dre, it might be an uphill struggle to encourage him to get involved.
