Who Would Win a Katt Williams, Kevin Hart ‘Verzuz’ Battle?

Katt Williams - Kevin Hart

*Katt Williams recently announced that he’s willing to face off with Kevin Hart in a Verzuz battle.

Speaking to Baltimore radio host Perisa Nicole, Williams said the viral showdown would be a walk in the park for him because his only competition is the late-great Richard Pryor.

“It’s almost cheating for me. I have over 10 specials,” Williams said, as reported by Complex. “I don’t have to pick but two jokes from each special and I’ve already deaded anyone whose last name isn’t Pryor anyway.”

Katt also noted that “comedically beefing” is his “lane”.

He challenged Hart to a comedic competition in 2016, suggesting a $5 million battle. Hart didn’t respond to this challenge.
