Babyface vs. Teddy Riley (Parts 1 & 2), Everybody Had Jokes for Brandy and Monica’s Verzuz Battle, 14 Depressing Royal Anecdotes Princess Diana Revealed in Her Tell-All Book, “I would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that shit.”, Drew Barrymore’s Alter Ego Is Comedy-Club Owner Mitzi Bananamore, Director James Gunn Has One Question About Space Force’s New Member Title, VP Mike Pence revealed personnel working for the service will be known as “Guardians.”, While Chloé Zhao takes home Best Director for, George Clooney Tried to Swoop In and Rescue Ben Affleck From Being Batman, It’s (Almost) Too Late for Shipping, So Send These E-Gift Cards Instead. It was the tensest moment in Verzuz history, but cool heads prevailed as Jeezy urged Gucci to consider the youth that look up to them and the many rappers we’ve lost over the last few years. Of course, fans would have to endure Diddy stopping every track to throw in an ad-lib or bust a quick dance move, but it would be worth it to hear him run through tracks like “Juicy” and “Hypnotize.” Big isn’t the only artist on Bad Boy’s roster to get some airtime. But that’s far from it for each of them. These two could go toe-to-toe with some of the greatest hits of the decade. And if he were to add in records he produced as part of the Neptunes, he would take things to another level. Highlights: Both sounding incredible in their late 70s; mic control; Patti kicking the night off with a dance routine to “All Right Now” that gave Mary J. Blige a run for her money; Gladys singing “Midnight Train to Georgia” twice and no one caring about the repetition; Patti kicking her shoes off during “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and having backup footwear options on her desk; every celebrity that got roasted for projecting in the comment section; Dionne Warwick joining the pair for “Superwoman” and “That’s What Friends Are For,” reuniting the lineup from the trio’s iconic 1986 HBO special, Sisters in the Name of Love, which, if you’re anything like me, you’ve already watched this month. Unfortunately, the battle ran about as long as an Iron Mike match, descending into chaos early on as tech issues surfaced on Teddy’s end and sabotaged the whole first hour. —Shawn Setaro, DJ Toomp has been a Southern hip-hop pioneer since he was working with Raheem the Dream and MC Shy-D back in the ‘80s (to hear his memories of those days, check this 2017 interview I did with him). Diddy and Jermaine Dupri are gatekeepers of the biggest club hits and dance records of the ’90s and 2000s. It is greatly appreciated if you help out by reporting rule violations in this thread, and if it does not gain attention, report the incident directly to the VS Battles staff.. Also, please note that violating a rule in another's turn does not allow exemption, for example: breaking a rule because "the other member broke the rules as well" is not an acceptable excuse. Who won? Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle are soul-music institutions celebrated as much for their grace as for possessing two of the greatest singing voices in recorded-music history — Gladys for her rich contralto and Patti as a soprano with a shocking range for whom no note seems too high. At seven is the Dale Earnhardt of rap, Big Baby Scumbag, and rounding out the bracket is Bhad Bhabie, who doesn’t really stand a chance, but we needed eight artists so why the hell not? It would be a true dream battle, if it actually happened. Is it still a contender? *Sorry, there was a problem signing you up. Legend proved the more gifted singer with the more versatile catalog but met stiff competition in Keys and her trove of Billboard chart toppers. The two versus seven matchup is more interesting, with Big Baby Scumbag utilizing his love of Miller Lite to get DaBaby drunk five songs in. Beenie Man and Bounty Killer are dancehall legends with a complicated history stretching across over 25 years of clashes, feuds, and reunions. Each has walked her own path, Jill mixing frank, soulful songwriting and spoken-word poetry in her catalog while Erykah blended funk, soul, and hip-hop into her own strange brew. The outrageous showdown between Atlanta-based hitmakers The-Dream and Sean Garrett is the reason Verzuz now has ground rules. Verzuz needs more tact and more women.

Instagram – As quarantine rages on, Instagram battles continue to be a gift that keeps on giving. The streak continued in the next decade with T.I.’s “Front Back” and “Big Things Poppin’.” Scott Storch started out as a member of the Roots and grew into one of the go-to beatmakers and session players of the aughts, working with everyone from 50 Cent and Chris Brown to Paris Hilton and Brooke Hogan. We heard about six songs in the first hour and a quarter, after which point Riley asked for 20 more minutes to work out sound and Babyface quietly escaped and promised to reschedule the already rescheduled battle. If you thought Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s IG battle went for a long time, Alchemist and Madlib would definitely keep you up past your bedtime running through all their classics. And Wheezy is quickly becoming the future of Atlanta. This is a battle for the sake of nostalgia. Lil Baby obliterates Bhad Bhabie, able to dive deep into a discography that grows more impressive by the day. Instagram en Facebook zijn allebei zeer geschikt voor leadgeneratie en community building. We wish both of these guys the best, and want them to work out their issues in a healthy way—in front of the whole world, on Instagram. Nelly’s “Country Grammar (Hot Shit)” landed like a bomb that summer, masking coarse street talk in playground melodies. Virginia innovator Timbaland was the era’s other go-to. Who won? At the special Juneteenth edition of Verzuz, both artists sat at pianos rattling off hit after hit, performing some and letting others ride out on nearby stereos. Highlights: The-Dream playing mini-golf on camera as Garrett came in seemingly sloshed and delivered impromptu opening remarks, Dream showing off the demo version of Jay-Z’s “Holy Grail” with himself on the hook instead of Justin Timberlake, Garrett spooking the crowd with love faces, famous spectators like Fat Joe, Kelly Rowland, and Rick Ross getting fed up and acting out in the comments. Both artists enjoyed a string of blockbuster albums and singles that slowed on the other end of the aughts, when Ludacris followed minor roles in Crash and Hustle and Flow into a career in action films, and Nelly took sporadic roles in television. Blackness won. Who won: Millennials who grew up with the God’s Property from Kirk Franklin’s Nu Nation album in lieu of secular hip-hop, who are now old enough to appreciate a show that starts at 5 p.m. and lets out before 8. 645ar unleashed his self-titled mixtape from last year, which betrays an emcee not totally reliant on squeaking towards success. —Jessica McKinney, Who you pick in a battle between Dreamville and Top Dawg Entertainment reveals more about your rap personality than you’d probably care to admit. 453.1k Followers, 121 Following, 384 Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from VERSUS (@versusbattleru) The second Verzuz event paired two hitmakers who’ve impacted the last ten years. Brandy and Monica got their start as teen singing sensations in the mid-’90s, as Brandy parlayed the success of “I Wanna Be Down” and “Baby” into lucrative sitcom and Disney acting gigs, and Monica built a career on the honest lyrics and effortless vocals of songs like “Before You Walk Out of My Life” and “Don’t Take It Personal.” Their famous chart-topping duet, “The Boy Is Mine,” popped thanks to a peculiar chemistry between the two, which sometimes appeared to the outside observer as something of a rivalry — egged on by shady moments like Brandy changing the hook to sing, “The song is mine,” at a live performance a few years back because she’d pitched in with writing and Monica hadn’t. Sean won … but it was close. It seemed as if they hadn’t spoken in years before sitting down in front of the cameras. The Instagram Stories feature alone — that series of bubbles at the top of the app that shows people’s shared photos and video clips for up to 24 hours — has grown to … It’s also teaching fans how many heads it can take to make a hit record. Both groups benefited from having a world class producer and label owner with a solid roster in their corner. John Legend charged ahead out of the gate and played a wide-ranging list of hits, deep cuts, and features, but Alicia Keys came armed to the teeth with hits and wisely avoidant of latter-day songs that didn’t chart well. Oscar Futures: Is It Time to Start Worrying About. The inaugural Verzuz battle is the longest and hardest to call. It wouldn’t all be about rap, though. What’s the rundown? Garrett is best known to people who don’t read liner notes as the guest on Nicki Minaj’s “Massive Attack” but renowned to those in the know as the co-writer and/or co-producer of singles like Usher’s “Yeah!,” Ciara’s “Goodies,” and Yonce bangers like “Ring the Alarm.” That said, he showed up late mugging lasciviously at the camera and letting records rock too long. —Shawn Setaro, This would be the battle no hardcore rap fan would want to miss. Ne-Yo’s hits like “So Sick,” “Because of You,” “Miss Independent,” Bey’s “Irreplaceable,” Rihanna’s “Take a Bow” are smooth R&B classics. Who won? And Diddy’s footprint in hip-hop culture is just as impressive. Let’s have a little fun with this one and play it out, bracket style. Lil Jon and Teddy Paindergrass are the yin and yang of mid-’00s hip-hop radio. The partnership only expanded from there, culminating in the iconic “What U Know.” Plus, there are classics with Jeezy, Ludacris, and other ATL-iens. We lose, though, because, as Shaggy pointed out on Instagram over the weekend, neither artist is allowed in the U.S. since the government restricted access for Beenie, Bounty, Sizzla, and others in 2010. People swear this was a blowout in Storch’s favor, accusing Mannie Fresh of having a sound too specific to its era and area. Music signee Legend over the years on songs including “Blame Game” and “They Say.” Both performers have worked in other mediums. It also matters that Dream let a comfortable lead slip, giving up too many points by leaving too much heat on the table. Singers who sound better than their records 50 years later won. Throughout the night, the singers shared memories and matched vibes with their musical selections. The audience is mostly in charge of the scoring, and there’s rarely a consensus on points. It was a lot like people who spam fireballs in Street Fighter: It’s rude, but if you can’t beat it, you can’t beat it. Prior to producing his own solo records like “Jesus Walks” or “Father Strecth My Hands,” he also lent a hand to JAY-Z on “Izzo (H.O.V.A), Beyoncé on “Party,” to Alicia Keys’ “You Don’t Know My Name,” and many more.

Who won? View this post on Instagram Rooftop!!! All rights reserved. Puff, please and thanks.). The third Verzuz battle restored order as successful R&B singer-songwriters Ne-Yo and Johnta Austin matched wares. As Kirk said at the beginning of the night, “He’s the goat, and I’m the alpaca.” The duo played two and a half hours worth of inspirational music to cool tensions in the early days of the protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd, chatting and duetting and calling on special guests for what was billed as a night of healing. Ross was accompanied by twerking dancers and got a shirtless massage — both Verzuz firsts.

Cole’s ability to go platinum without any features, EarthGang as the second coming of OutKast and J.I.D’s DiCaprio 2 as the best thing out of Atlanta since Thugger. What’s the rundown? Although a few hiccups with Patti’s sound stood as a reminder of how quickly and off the cuff this series came together in just six months, the night’s overall excellence suggests it’ll be here as long as there’s a captive audience. Verzuz caters largely to aughts nostalgia; hits from ’99 and 2000 don’t always do so well. The battle wasn’t the blowout fans might’ve expected, but the West Coast legend ran off with it. But the duo synced up as energetic performers and — let’s be honest — purveyors of problematic rap. He’s got mid-aughts classics with Bun B, David Banner, Bubba Sparxx, and more. Four versus five is the most interesting matchup here, and while the 51-year-old Birdman succumbs to a nap early in the competition, he’s able to outlast Baby Keem with relative ease. Antics ate up most of the first hour, where Dream let loose a steady stream of solid tunes, and Garrett played songs at random, digging up Blueprint 3–era Jay-Z songs and premiering unreleased solo cuts. His breakout year was 2009, when he parlayed Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” into work with the likes of Eminem and Birdman. —Will Schube, battle addiction and mental health issues.

They’ve both worked with major artists like Drake and 21 Savage, but no collaboration sounds alike. Dupri made his mark in 1992 with Kris Kross’ rambunctious anthem “Jump.” Since then, he’s stacked his catalog with party records that have influenced some of the greatest dance crazes in hip-hop like “I Think They Like Me (SoSo Def Remix)” as well as Hot 100 pop R&B songs that are played at weddings and special events (he co-produced and wrote Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together”). His production discography dates back to the mid-90s with credits on Prodigy’s “Keep It Thoro” and Jadakiss’ “We Gonna Make It.” More important to reliving their greatest hits though, this battle would be an opportunity to see legendary artists at work. Who won? What’s the rundown? CB’s catalog as a featured guest might be a little more versatile. 112 was discovered by Diddy as Bad Boy Records took flight on memorable albums from Faith Hill and Biggie. A battle between the two made perfect sense, and once technical difficulties on Nelly’s end subsided, the night took off. What’s great about Diddy and Jermaine Dupri is that they have something for every type of fan.

Dupri’s R&B records probably run even deeper, but Diddy can keep up by playing tracks from Mary J. Blige, Jagged Edge, Faith Evans, and more. A battle with Tay Keith would put Wheezy’s powerful, majestic style (see the fanfare-sounding melodies on Thug’s “Hot,” for example) against Keith’s energetic, of-the-moment drum programming in a battle to see who’s the hottest right now, and who’s likely to leave the biggest mark on the game. Ross, but it shouldn’t have cut his way as easily as it did. The night ended with an impromptu performance of “Icy,” the duet that started it all and, for now, appears to have put one of hip-hop’s coldest wars on hold. Who won?

Texas songwriter, performer, producer, and choir director Kirk Franklin followed Hammond’s lead in the ’90s with his choirs God’s Property and the Family, adding funk and hip-hop into the mix and crossing over with unlikely R&B radio hits like 1997’s Funkadelic-sampling “Stomp.” Franklin and Hammond’s Verzuz meet wasn’t a battle so much as a necessary moment of calm led by intergenerational talents. (CNN)We're all about to roll out to some country grammar as Ludacris and Nelly battle it out in the next round of Verzuz.

It’s hard as nails! The crowd swore Garrett smoked Dream, but what really happened is that he pulled a Rocky. Highlights: Scene-setting poetry from Nikki Giovanni before the battle, Jill revealing that the hook for the Roots’ “You Got Me” (which she wrote and Erykah sang) was the first piece of music she ever wrote, the comforting lighting, that split second where both singers made a scrunch-face and it turned into a meme.

Highlights: Brandy hearing a new Monica song and asking if it was the intermission music, Brandy telling the story of the time she geeked out and yelled “West side!” at 2pac, Monica refusing to give the audience live vocals on “The Boy Is Mine” while Brandy sang hers, the debate over whether Monica was wearing waist-high boots or leather pants obscuring high heels that culminated in Solange creating a Twitter poll in which pants won by a narrow margin.
