The Verzuz series founders had planned on taking Memorial Day weekend off… but their fellow artists and audience had other ideas.
“I was going to take Saturday off,” Swizz Beatz said. “But I’m getting a lot of pushback from the artists and the audience to keep it going, especially since it’s a long holiday weekend and everyone is stuck indoors. So I said, ‘I’d better tell Tim we’re going to work this weekend.”
Two battles taking place this weekend: Saturday will see Beenie Man and Bounty Killer and on Monday, the first group Verzuz, with Jagged Edge taking on 112.
“We wanted to switch it up and add some Caribbean style with Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, and also give everyone a treat with another celebration with Jagged Edge and 112 as that was in popular demand – all for Memorial Day Weekend,”.
