legends & icons

In a recent interview, Rick Ross said it was a “possibility” for him and Hov to face off, but the rap icon Jay-Z has now stated no one can compete with him.

During Rick Ross’ interview, he stated “Jay-Z… Yeah! Why not?.”  and continued with “To me, that’s what makes Verzuz special because it brings out the best in both parties. That’s a possibility, but I gotta give my flowers to the big homie. I got to. My homie gave me my first opportunity signing me to Def Jam Records, and he’s one-of-one.”

Alicia Keys and Genius’ Rob Markman were on Twitter Spaces speaking about the R&B icon’s latest album, Keys. Alicia’s husband Swizz Beatz is one of major players behind the brand VERZUZ. Things quickly moved to the topic and fans got to hear Jay-Z’s thoughts on the platform.

Rob asked Alicia about it and Hov interrupted, saying “nobody can stand on that stage” with him. “Everyone’s amazing… No-one can stand on that stage with me. I’m just telling you guys the real. There’s not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me…” he said. He went on to mention that no-one has seen him perform the ‘GRAMMY Family’ freestyle live and watching it in person would be too much.
