The initial Verzuz battle debuted on Instagram Live in March 2020 between series creators Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. Since then, music fans have been treated to battles featuring Snoop DoggDMXBenny BlancoRyan TedderBabyfaceTeddy RileyGladys KnightPatti LaBelleGucci Mane and JeezyAshantiKeyshia Cole and most recently, Soulja Boy and Bow Wow… to name a few. Most recently, Ja Rule and Fat Joe hosted a Verzuz battle at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater.

Over the summer, Lil Kim announced that she’s ready to do a Verzuz with Nicki Minaj

The hip-hop legend made the announcement at the BET Awards. When asked if she would participate in the popular virtual series Kim quickly responded “yes.” As to who she wants to face off in a battle, she answered “Nicki.”

Kim and Nicki have famously feuded over the years and it remains unclear if they have settled their beef for good.

Rapper Trina recently said she’s down to go head-to-head against Lil Kim. 

“[Lil] Kim is that bitch. Let’s be very clear…When I came into the industry, this is who I looked at, looked up to. This is the lyrics that I recited, this is what made me know that it’s okay to talk that lethal shit…,” she explained during an interview with 103.5 The Beat. 

“Therefore, I would feel like that’s equivalent because Kim is legendary, and she got mad records,” she added.
