Grammy-winning rapper T.I. isn’t worried about 50 Cent stepping up to the plate. The King of the South has announced his interest in going head-to-head against music icon JAY-Z in a much-needed Verzuz battle.

T.I. x JAY

This week, Tip appeared on a radio show to dish on really wanting to put his biggest hits up against Young Hov.

“Since we keep it at the top, let me just be real with you man, I want JAY. But let me ask you this, who can see JAY sitting down and doing [Verzuz]? If I’m a billionaire, I’m not finna do that either, you know what I’m saying? 50 ain’t that far off, as far as our bankroll, neck and neck – and another thing, his personality. I need to have somebody who has a personality that won’t be so intimidated by my bravado.”

High-Key Details

Earlier in the week, Tip hit up Instagram to deliver some major shade aimed at 50 and his fans. The playful trolling even sparked a co-sign and reaction from former G-Unit member Young Buck.

“🚨MESSAGE TO ALL🚨 @50cent FANS 🧨 👀BRING ME THE BULLY😈 🗣YALL SCARED OF THIS N*GGA NOT ME‼️ I’m from Atlanta & we don’t care nothing bout nunna that‼️IF U CANT HANDLE HIM THATS YOUR BUSINESS‼️Betcha I HANDLE MINE👑 @50cent Your catalog is IN TROUBLE ‼️@verzuztv @therealswizzz @timbaland SET IT UP ‼️ Next time they bring up the Gods You gon Respect US‼️👑💯✊🏽👑” -T.I.’s Instagram

Wait, There’s More

On Monday, Curtis Jackson took a moment away from celebrating his birthday to react to Tip’s challenge. Instead of admitting it would go down as an epic battle, 50 playfully questioned T.I.’s state of mind.
