Busta Rhymes picks Eminem, Lil Wayne and Jay-Z as potential contenders for the next Verzuz battle


Brian Killian/Getty ImagesT.I. may have passed on doing a Verzuz battle with Busta Rhymes, but Busta is still placing bets for his opponent ahead the series’ second season launch later this month. 

In an interview with Complex News, the veteran MC said he’s willing to go “against anybody, as long as their catalog is a powerful catalog because I don’t want to do a corny Verzuz.”

“I would love to do a Verzuz with somebody that I’m a fan of because I’m only trying to compete with somebody that brings the best out of me,” Busta continued. “I would love to do a Verzuz with Eminem, I would love to do a Verzuz with Lil Wayne. I would love to do a Verzuz with [Jay-Z].

Busta also said he wouldn’t mind doing a “battle with two artists at the same time,” an idea he presented to T.I. once before.

Who knows if Em, Wayne or Jay will accept Busta’s offer, but best believe super producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are aware of his persistence to battle in the series they launched earlier this year. 

The Instagram Live series, which is also available on Apple Music, is preparing for its second season launch. T.I. and Jeezy will go head to head in the season opener on Nov. 19.
