The news follows reports that Dru Hill has challenged Boyz II Men, 112 and Jagged Edge to a Verzuz battle. 

Dru Hill posted a video on social media requesting a virtual face-off between popular R&B boy groups of the 90s.

“Whoever wants it, can get it, whether it’s Jodeci, Boyz II Men…” said Sisqó in the clip. He added, “Maybe 112 and Jagged Edge could combine to one group, and then they might have a chance.”

As reported by All Hip Hop, “112 and Jagged Edge took part in one of the often overlooked Verzuz events in May 2020,” the outlet writes. 

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

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

We reported earlier that Jermaine Dupri challenged Diddy last week to face-off, writing: “Somebody let @Diddy know I’m @thegarden right now ! And he gon need some training for me,” he tweeted.

Diddy responded by telling the So So Def founder that he “aiint got enough hits.” He made clear that he’d rather battle Dr. Dre, telling Jermaine, “I’ll smash you with just biggie n Mary . But I do have the upmost respect on you as a musical legend – Dre the only one can get in the ring w me.”

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 Dogg, DMX, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Babyface, Teddy Riley, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Gucci Mane and Jeezy, Ashanti, Keyshia 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.
