Wiz Khalifa is ready for Verzuz Battle against Lil Wayne
Wiz Khalifa has stated his desire to compete against Lil Wayne in a Verzuz duel.
Khalifa picked Wayne as his ideal Verzuz opponent in an interview with DJ Superstar Jay that aired on Shade 45 on Thursday (December 22). However, his reasoning was more performance-based than competition-based.
“I think that would be fun, yeah. Because Wayne is a really dope performer,” . The CEO of Taylor Gang commented, “Me and him going back and forth performing bangers? That shit’d be hard! And we’d both smoke hella weed. I think that would be more of a concert than a Verzuz.
Wayne was recently asked who he would like to see represent Young Money in the Verzuz ring with the rest of the Young Money squad. He mentioned Roc-A-Fella Records, which is owned by JAY-Z.
Wayne responded, “I would say the best competition, I would have to go with Roc-A-Fella,”
Wayne compared HOV to Tom Brady, winner of a record seven Super Bowls, and labelled him the best rapper of all time in the same interview.
Lil Wayne once declared Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter the best rapper of all time. “When you do this rapping thing, obviously like football, every sport is different. You play hockey, I’m sure they got something that they only know about. Something that they probably can’t explain, but only they know. That thing in rap, that we only know in rap, he has that. He’s the Tom Brady of that.”
Wiz Khalifa is now occupied with other commercial endeavours, so a fight with Verzuz is probably not on the horizon anytime soon. A clip from the upcoming film Spinning Gold, in which the “We Dem Boyz” rapper plays George Clinton, was revealed last week, marking the rapper’s first return to the big screen in more than ten years.
The film Spinning Gold, which is scheduled for release in theatres in March 2023, chronicles the success of Casablanca Records in the 1970s, which signed artists including Clinton’s Parliament-Funkadelic, Donna Summer, Gladys Knight, the Isley Brothers, and many more.
Wiz also just inked one of the first NIL (name, image, and likeness) deals by a record company when he signed 25 college athletes to endorsement deals with his Taylor Gang Entertainment imprint.
