Ludacris and Nelly had up to 750,000 viewers for their “Versuz” battle on Instagram. Hip hop fans were taken back in time to the early part of this millennium as both men played their hit songs for listeners.
On Saturday (May 16th), Akon took to his Instagram story to reveal to his followers that he’d been challenged to a hit battle by Tekashi 6ix9ine.
Kids in the comments are really saying Akon needs "the clout". That man has dropped more hits than people 6ix9ine snitched on. Go look at Akon's track record for making hits. https://t.co/MSvrO6ryOk

“@6ix9ine just challenged me to a battle tomorrow at 3:30pm Live on IG,” Akon wrote on a screenshot of himself and 6ix9ine on Facetime. “IT’S ON.”
This has been quite the development and some are wondering if this will actually go down. Maybe Swizz Beatz and Timbaland would be interested on having this showdown on their popular “Versuz” series on Instagram.
The man has his own city, tf does he need Instagram clout for lmao
