We’ve gotten some epic Verzuz Instagram Live sessions since the coronavirus pandemic hit, including Teddy Riley Vs Babyface, T-Pain vs Lil Jon, and most recently, Saturday night as Erykah Badu and Jill Scott went at it for three hours. Now, music fans will get another historic matchup next weekend.
On Instagram Live, Swizz Beatz was speaking with Timbaland about a possible Nelly vs Ludacris matchup. Timbaland was excited that this was asked as he replied “We can get that.” This will go down on May 16. As many know, these two legends were some of the biggest artists of the 2000s and delivered countless hits and classic albums as well. Some of the memorable albums by Luda are ‘Word Of Mouf,’ ‘The Red Light District,’ and ‘Chicken-n-Beer.’ For Nelly, fans can expect to get nostalgia from projects such as ‘Country Grammar‘ and ‘Nellyville.’
Many social media users on Twitter so far have Ludacris has the favorite but you cannot count Nelly out at all. Don’t be surprised to see this Instagram Live break Tekashi 6ix9ine’s viewer record of 2 million either. Check out Timbaland confirming this matchup to Swizz Beatz below.
